The MovieMovieBlogBlog had a great idea for a holiday blogathon. Each post would present a movie to someone as a gift this Christmas season. As soon as I saw this, I knew exactly what movie I wanted to present and to whom. Presenting An Affair to Remember to the love of my life, my husband… Read More An Affair to Remember
