So you may be wondering why this is so important to me that I'm writing a blog post about it. And, in short, this movie has been a huge part of my life. Not just because it was a fun rom com with deeper values about how you can achieve what you dream, but because it was my Grandma's favourite movie, even at 92.
Yes, the movie taught me how to "bend and snap" and the subtle art of telling someone off without being rude. But it was also much more than that. For fifteen years it brought a great deal of enjoyment to my Grandma. She would watch it once every week on VHS. She was legally blind and couldn't operate a DVD player.
So when her copy of Legally Blonde got worn out we would take to Amazon to find her a new one. Her only request was that it not skip in the same spot as last time. It was okay if it wasn't perfect as she knew all the words by heart. The movie brought her a tremendous amount of joy and laughter.
When my Grandma passed earlier this year and we got together to celebrate her life we didn't wear black, we went in pink instead (in true Elle Woods Style) in honour of Grandma. So "Happy Anniversary!" Legally Blonde, you meant more to me than you'll ever know.
I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
