Julie & Julia

Last night, as Greg flipped between the Penguins game (his choice) and 40 Year Old Virgin (my choice), we stumbled upon the trailer for a movie I’m super excited about:

Not only do I love Amy Adams and think Meryl Streep makes a brilliant Julia Child, this movie seems very inspiring to me as I try to find my place in the blogging world. I like Julie's idea to have a specific blog theme - writing about her experience of cooking through Julia's cookbook, every day for an entire year. And the story of how Julia found and built her name in the respected world of cuisine. Just today I've been thinking about some themes I could focus on for my blog (they will remain a secret until I begin one) instead of just writing random food-related posts. I think they have some potential. As I anxiously await the opening day (August 7) of Julie & Julia, I am going to do some more research on the two stories that inspired the movie, and hopefully I too will become inspired enough to think of a clever, attention-grabbing blog series.


  1. Great post! I can't wait to see what you end up choosing for your theme!

  2. So I just saw a preview for the movie on TV - it looks amazing! I couldn't help but think how perfect this movie is for you. I'm sure it will spark all kinds of inspiration! :)
