It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to snag a good, old-fashioned movie night with diplo-husband but last week we were able to steal one night away after the errands were run, the groceries put away, dinner cleared, and diplo-tot snoring soundly away.
Not knowing much about it (other than we love Italy) we teed up To Rome with Love, which was the perfect fit – light hearted and endearing in a way that the combination of Woody Allen and a strong ensemble can be.
I couldn’t help but falling in love with Milly – the wide-eyed country girl who was so afraid about making the right impression in Rome with her “school teacher hair” that she runs off to find a salon and has an adventure all her own . Maybe I just recognize something in her…Or maybe she’s just gorgeous.
So in honor of this modern Milly, here is how I would reimagine her for this Valentine’s Day – note for next time Milly, bring a map!
