I wish clouds were marshmellows


My favorite childrens book is becoming a movie!

Many of you have heard me rave about "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs"

I watched the movie trailer in 3-D this weekend.

It is perfection for all those who's mind is constantly on food.

Haven't we all thought (at one time or another) that it would be pure bliss to have food fall from the sky? (Preferably, double chunk chewy chocolate chip cookies followed with a shower of ice cold milk) This author taps right into my heavenly day dream. The citizens of chewandswallow don't have the aggravations of normal people like grocery shopping, cooking for hours then realizing you are missing a key ingredient. They just simply walk outside with plate and fork and voila they have their 5 course meal.

However, tragedy strikes this little town when unexpected storm strikes the town. They narrowly escape.

The people who lived through the this time of chaos in their little town, are testimonies to me of why food shouldn't come from the sky.

Of course it shatters my dream, but brings perspective.

I hope y'all enjoy it!
