Do you all remember when you first saw The Notebook? I do. I saw it in high school with my bestie Erin and it was HUGE DRAMA. Before the movie, I watched a guy I knew make-out with a girl I knew — except the girl definitely wasn’t his girlfriend, a close friend of mine. I called said friend after the movie to tell her what had happened, not thrilled to be the bearer of bad news. Except she had bad news for me too, confirming that my boyfriend had cheated on me with a mutual friend a few months back. And it all comes full circle, folks.
But that’s not why I love The Notebook. I love it because it perfectly depicts a summer romance and young love. But I also love it because it proves that no matter what, if something is meant to be, it will be.
Not to mention I love Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, and I love them both together. And besides A Walk to Remember, this is the only Nicholas Sparks book-turned-movie worth watching. Case and point.
Then again, I’m a hopeless romantic, so maybe I love this movie because it’s targeted towards women such as myself.
“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that palnts a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.”
