A Love Story

Dustin got me a Kindle for Christmas this year and I really love it.  The first book I bought, using the term loosely here since it was free, was Pride and Prejudice.  I completely fell in love with it.  I was so engrossed by the book that I could wait to get my hands on it.  The thin line between love and hate for Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth was excruciating to read.  They argued, they ridiculued, they finally gave in to love and married.  And with that, I fell in love with the first classic I ever read.

Then this week The Pioneer Woman had a giveaway.  The rules were that a person was to comment on their favorite love story.  Who is the all-time winner of great love stories?  Because I was enamored with the story, I chose Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth.  But I didn't end there, I scrolled down the list and saw several couple who are the epitome of love. 

Some of my favorites were listed, (Joe Fox and Kathleen Kelly from You've Got Mail, Vivian and Edward Lewis in Pretty Woman, Johnny and Baby from Dirty Dancing) some were not, (Melanie and Jake from Sweet Home Alabama, Jenny and Forrest from Forrest Gump).  It really got me thinking about who else should be on that list. 

And with that, I leave it up to you.  I would love to get a lot of feedback about which great love story is on your mind.  I know I'm stealing from Ree on The Pioneer Woman, but I'm also dying to know what the readers of this blog think.  So click the blue words that have a number followed by lovely thoughts (i.e. 0 lovely thoughts) below to post a comment, you can do it annonymously if you haven't set up an account to follow exclusively and let me know what you think.

There are so many, it's hard to choose! But I think I would have to say Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox. This movie was on this weekend and it's one of the few I can watch over and over again. And I love Meg Ryan.
