My Favorite Movies #60 – Love Actually

Love Actually 2003 Directed by Richard Curtis Netflix says... Writer-director Richard Curtis's charming treatise on romance and relationships is an all-star ensemble comedy that tells 10 separate (but intertwining) London love stories, leading up to a spirited climax on Christmas Eve.

Aaron and I have been friends on WordPress for several years, running speed walking in the same blog circle. We’ve seen bloggers come and go, and then come back, only to leave again. Hey, maybe we’re the problem? Wow, this got depressing.
