It's my first time on your blog and I have a couple comments. I LOVE Forever Strong. It's a change-your-life movie. I haven't heard of the others you mentioned. Also, I LOL your comment about baby names. I love that you mentioned Heather. When I went to Britain a few years back the people seemed shocked that my name is Heather. No one in Britain names their kid Heather.
