Day 23: Have Courage and Be Kind. 

31 days of Enjoy square

Since we’re enjoying around here this month, I thought today I’d share that I finally saw Cinderella this past weekend.
And OH MY GOODNESS. How can it have taken this long for me to see this movie?!?!

It’s utterly beautiful. And it elicited a love for Cinderella’s story which I’ve never quite had before. (Though admittedly, I maintain that Ella Enchanted produced a similar effect when I read it years ago. A very different telling, but still a delightful book, friends!) As far as the Disney telling of the story goes, this spoke more deeply to me than the original animated classic ever did.

 Along with being sheer visual bliss, there were real relationships that actually stirred my heart- like the prince and his father, and Cinderella and her parents. (Oh and by the way, Lily James was sublime, was she not? And her voice is lovely, so you know, that’s perfect.) 

I know. I’m late to the party of people-who-love-this-movie. But I don’t care. It was such a well crafted story. I can’t help but share my deep, heartfelt enjoyment of it!

And it reminded me of this print I did commissioned by a lovely girl through the shop back in March.

If you haven’t seen it yet, go to the nearest red box and watch it with your little girl, your best friend, your Prince Charming, or a bowl of ice cream. (Or change all the “or’s” to “and’s”.)

  1. Oh, my goodness, I’m so happy that you’ve finally gotten to see it! It has quickly become one of my all-time favorites. Between the breath-taking costume and set design, the stirring story, and the gorgeous music, it is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen.
