Do You Have a Summer Getaway?

If you're a country girl like me, it's probably hard to imagine spending every summer at Lake Tahoe, like Eden's family did.  We didn't have that kind of money, but we made just as many fun memories camping for one week every summer.

Do you have a favorite place you visit each year?  Maybe you make an annual trek to the beach or Disney World.  If you have a special place you return to regularly, be sure to share it in the comment section.

Eden is suprised to find Riley, her childhood friend, still living at Lake Tahoe, and they manage to quickly reconnect despite the number of years that have passed.

Paycheck Versus Fulfillment

Eden is in marketing, but she's lost her enthusiam and edge.  She likes marketing, but she's not interested in the type of boring products her boss keeps assigning her to promote.  

Riley isn't making any money with his hot air balloon business, until Eden works her marketing magic, but he loves what he's doing.

Think about your job for a minute.  Do you love what you do, or do you feel stuck?  Most of us like a sure thing, particularly a paycheck, but sometimes we need to do something new and differerent to keep growing.  Changing jobs can be risky.  Taking a chance on something more fulfilling requires a leap of faith.  

If you're stuck in a rut, maybe it means you need be open to a new opportunity.  

Unrealistic Movie Scenes

Kate is Eden's best friend, and she accompanies Eden to Lake Tahoe.  Instead of just spending girl time hanging out, Kate ends up on her own quite a bit as Eden ping pongs between Riley and her boyfriend, Michael.

Kate isn't a third wheel for too long though because Eden breaks up with Michael and hands him over to Kate.  Turns out, Michael and Kate have been attracted to each other this whole time, so Eden gives them her blessing.

He's too much of a weiner to fight over anyway.

In real life, that doesn't happen.  Outside of Hallmark land, this would have led to the demise of Eden and Kate's friendship.  They would have blocked each other on social media and never spoken to each other again.  Their mutual acquaintances would have to pick sides.  Imagine if divorces were this amicable!  

Did you notice how many milkshakes everyone keeps buying from Mr. Webber's store, yet everyone stays skinny?  Over the course of a week, the rest of us would have put on 20 pounds.

Riley is allergic to bananas, but Mr. Webber keeps forgetting.

Speaking of Mr. Webber, he asks Riley to fix his freezer when it stops working.  Without using any tools, Riley manages to fix it in two seconds.  If you've ever had an appliance repaired, you know it gets torn apart, and there's an enormous mess to clean up once it's fixed.  No greasy hands for Riley!

What Rating Would You Give "Romance in the Air?"

Cindy Busby always plays a down-to-earth character who is bouncy and likeable, and Torrance Coombs has the kind of eyes you can drown in.

I'm not sure I'd feel secure hooking up with someone who gave balloon rides for a living, but that's just me.  Those eyes have the power to convince a woman of anything though.

Hallmark's "The Color of Rain" the True Story of Gina Kell and Michael Spehn

Starring:  Lacey Chabert and Warren Christie Released:  2014 Summary:  While consoling each other over the recent loss of their spouses, a man and a woman grow close and fall in love. Image:  Crown Media, United States LLC Gina Kell and Michael Spehn Find Love Despite Tragedy You've seen the movie, so you know the plot, but did you catch that it's based on a real-life story? Gina Kell's husband died on Christmas Day, 2005, from a rare and incurable cancer, leiomyocarcoma, which he battled for three years. Weeks later, Cathy Spehn died seventeen days after learning her painful headaches were a result of a brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme. It's no wonder the two gravitated toward one another. It's like parenting--people who have never had children can't really grasp what life with kids is truly like on a daily basis.  Similarly, your heart can hurt for someone who has lost their spouse, but you can't relate to them on deeper l

Hallmark's "It Was Always You"--Thoughts & Two Fun Polls

Starring:  Erin Krakow and Tyler Hynes Released:  2021 Summary:  A fiancee starts to question her life choices and puts her future engagement plans in doubt upon the arrival of her betrothed's free-spirited brother. Image:  Crown Media Do You Have Wanderlust? When Elizabeth Hall (Erin Krakow) returns to Echo Beach for her engagement party, hosted by George's mom, she questions whether or not marrying George (Giles Panton) might be a mistake. They have their dental practice in common, but aside from that, are they too different?  To be with George, the proverbial "stick-in-the-mud" who never wants to stray far from his dental office, Elizabeth must sacrifice her desire to travel and see the world.   When Elizabeth reconnects with George's brother, David Belling (Tyler Hynes), he manages to fan the flames of her wanderlust.  David reminds her of the note she'd written when she was 13 of all the places she wanted to explore in Italy.   bike trail guide Lightenin

Many Fans Disappointed By Hallmark's "Follow Me to Daisy Hills"

Starring:  Cindy Busby and Marshall Williams Released:  2020 Summary:  A woman faces uneasy feelings when her father tries to save their failing family general store by calling in her ex-boyfriend for some help. Image:  Crown Media Cindy Busby and Marshall Williams Aren't Powerful Leads We Hallmark fans have our favorite leading Hallmark actors, and when they star in a new movie, we can watch them over and over.  My favorite is Lacey Chabert, and I never grow tired of her.  For you, it may be someone else. Across the board, Cindy Busby does not have a strong appeal with the Hallmark fan base. Ryan Paevey groupies enjoyed her in the Mr. Darcy movies, but when she popped up in consecutive seasonal releases-- A Godwink Christmas:  Meant for Love, Love in the Forecast, Romance in the Air, and now Follow Me to Daisy Hills-- fans are losing enthusiasm for movies where she's the lead. Why can't Busby win over Hallmark fans?  She's cute, upbeat, and her acting performance is pr

Hallmark's "A Country Wedding" QUIZ, Music Video, & a Poll!

Starring:  Jesse Metcalfe and Autumn Reeser Released:  2015 Summary:  A popular country-western musician reconsiders his career and his upcoming wedding after reconnecting with his childhood love in his rural hometown. Image:  Crown Media Music Lyric Sets the Stage Not only is  Cowboy Rides Away  an awesome song actually played and sung by Jesse Metcalfe, but one line from it sums up the entire movie: Sometimes the cowboy rides away.  Sometimes he rides back home to stay. It's not like we haven't seen this in past Hallmark movies.  The main character is a huge success in his or her respective field, but the small town they couldn't wait to leave ends up being their ultimate source of inspiration.  Home is safe, authentic, and restorative.   Knowing Hallmark's plot formula, you already anticipate Bradley Sutton will never leave Milltown once he rediscovers his roots, but the lyrics from Cowboy Rides Away  alleviates any concerns.        Metcalfe only had 12-13 days of pr

Hallmark's "Chasing Waterfalls" Reunites Cindy Busby & Christopher Russell

Starring:  Cindy Busby & Christopher Russell Released:  2021 Summary:  A photographer visits an isolated lodge in search of scenic waterfalls and other idyllic natural features to capture alongside her attractive guide. Image:  Crown Media Vote For Your Favorite Busby/Russell Hallmark Movie Fans loved Cindy Busby and Christopher Russell when the two paired up for 2020's Love in the Forecast , and so Hallmark Channel reunited them for a 2021 Spring Fling premiere.  It's the third Hallmark movie featuring Russell as a nature man who thrills female viewers with the rugged way he tames the wilderness and survives the elements--he's the epitome of masculinity. You may remember Love in the Forecast  was about a dairy farmer teaching a meteorologist how to predict the weather via nature rather than high-tech equipment. Love in the Forecast, Image: Crown Media Busby and Russell have become friends over the course of filming two movies together, and you can sense their comfort

Hallmark's "Nature of Love," Glamping, and the Appalachian Trail

Starring:  Emilie Ullerup and Christopher Russell Released:  2020 Summary:    A city girls writes a magazine feature on a glamping resort.  Not being the sporty type, she manages to face her fears by trying the camp's activities with the help from a rugged outdoorsman and nature guide. Image:  Crown Media, United States LLC Had You Ever Heard of "Glamping" Before This Movie? When I read the plot summary for this movie, I thought there was a typographical error and that our heroine was actually going camping. Who knew glamping was a thing?  Maybe everyone but me? What is glamping ?  It's camping, but with more glamorous accommodations and facilities.  You can enjoy the great outdoors without roughing it.  Glamping provides the best of both worlds--the beauty of nature and the luxuries of a resort.  Sounds pretty perfect.
