I just watched the end of Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day and I loved it just as much today as I did the first time. If you haven't checked this one out do yourself a favor and rent it! It's such a wonderful story of love and loss and self discovery. Plus spoiler alert it has a happy ending and who can argue with that.

The second thing I'm LOVING right now is The Last Time I Was Me by Cathy Lamb. We just read this for book club and it is amazing! It's a story of a woman who's life has reached a breaking point in her life. She's realized that the life that she's been living has been a lie and this is the story of her hysterical journey back to the truth which includes pancakes, finger-painting, germs, a naked run along the river and yet again another happy ending.
One thing I've learned is that it may not be hip and it may not be artsy but a happy ending beats a sad ending any day. Call it romantic comedy or chick lit but I call the belief that everything is going to turn out okay therapeutic and wonderful. So for those of you out there that love a happy ending please consider checking these two out.
