Marley & Me

Ahh...what a tearjerker! If you are an animal lover like Nathan and I are, be prepared. We saw Marley & Me tonight and gave it a 9 out of 10. Great movie! It's sooo our life :) The family was just like ours in many ways. Nathan and I both related to the characters and of course the chaos of family....both good and bad. It's always nice to be reminded of our little blessings in life. We came home and loved on Emmy and Macy for a long, long time. 2 thumbs up! And, it's based on a true story-- if you are a reader, check it out. John Grogan is the author.
