I met Austin about two(?) months ago when she was at my store training to be a barista (again). We totes hit it off and have been friends since :) She's a hilarious, encouraging and joyful lady to be around. So glad that we're friends, Austin!2d

stacyinreallifeNearly ten years ago, I went to my first ever midnight movie premiere for "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" at this exact theatre. It was so magical and full of excitement- as well as die-hard Lord of the Rings fans dressed up in their finest Gandalf and Frodo costumes. I stood in the line that stretched to the end of the building and suddenly became overjoyed to see the movie that would soon become my favorite of all time (I've seen it closing in on 60 times).
Last night, I went back to this theatre for the "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" 9 PM premiere and it was nearly a ghost town. My heart sank as I wondered where all the fans had gone and why, exactly, had I worn five layers of clothing? I had prepared myself to stand in a looong line, but there was no line to be found, not even at the concession stand.
As the movie started and the plot and characters revealed, that joy that I had experienced ten years ago had started to come back to me. It is so exciting to watch a movie that you're wholly and completely involved in. The characters, plot, costumes, cinematography. All of it. Thank you, #CatchingFirePremiere, for bringing that "magic moment" back to me #TalesOfACinéaste2w
stacyinreallifeI can't believe it's been four years since my Poppy went to heaven. I feel like it was just yesterday that we spent days that turned into weeks with him while he fought for his life at the hospital. That first Thanksgiving without you was the hardest, Poppy, because that was your favorite holiday. I made sure to eat a double portion of Gramma's stuffing- just for you. I know you wouldn't have had it any other way. I miss you and love you, Poppy ️

If my soul one goal to seek
This my solitary vision 'Til I only dwell in Thee
That I only dwell in Thee
'Til I only dwell in Thee"
