Little Women


"I've got the key to my castle in the air, but whether I can unlock the door remains to be seen." 

"...for love casts out fear, and gratitude can conquer pride.."

"I like good strong words that mean something."

"I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship."

Every weekend, my sister and I would spend the weekend on Riverside with our Aunt Lorraine.. She was born in the late 1940s so it makes sense that Little Women, a 1949 classic, was one of the movies that she had us watching with her on Saturday nights.. We were much too young to hang out on our own, so we would climb into her queen size bed and lay right up under her, watching old movies, until we fell asleep. 

While watching it tonight, I was able to catch a few really cool quotes! It's funny how when you watch something when you're older, you view it from a totally different perspective. 

It's also very interesting to see how much we as women have shifted our roles and mannerisms since the debut of this movie. I wish I could go back in time sometimes to live in a different era such as the the early 50s ...but I really love the freedom that we as women have in this decade versus what we had back then. Knowing my bold, candid, and sometimes unruly spirit, I don't think I would've made it! But I guess we'll never really know! 

Goodnight 🌙
