A fabulous weekend, ending with the Oscars.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Just on Saturday, we experienced a few inches of snow, which perfectly encompassed our girl's night in—cozy, and made complete with dark chocolate cake, French vanilla ice cream and a sweet movie. And yesterday—a relaxing day at home with family and of course, the Oscars! I truly enjoy the Oscars—the outfits, the presentations, the little extras, and of course, the awards themselves. And I must say, I am so thrilled that Natalie Portman and Colin Firth won for best actress and actor in their respected leading roles. I have long been following Colin Firth, ever since I first saw him depicting the ever so dashing Mr. Darcy in Pride & Prejudice, BBC version, 1995. And to think, he almost declined the part—feeling that he wouldn't be suitable as Mr.Darcy! This story instantly stole my heart, and is by far my favorite film interpretation of Jane Austen's novel. Congratulations to Mr.Firth on finally getting the recognition that he deserves!
