As the days until our wedding race by and work piles up and more and more is to be done, I find myself daydreaming. Daydreaming of being a calm woman with a quiet smile on her face. The woman in the movie who gracefully takes bad news and makes a small joke to lighten the mood, a little chuckle muffled under her breath. The woman with the natural beauty and the perfect shade of lipstick that shows she cares. Her clumsiness is charming and always well timed.
I never used to think this way, and to be honest. It kind of feels like growing up.
A few examples of these women can be found in these movies:
• Father of the Bride Diane Keaton
• Lars and the Real Girl Emily Mortimer
• Away We Go Maya Rudolph
