Happy First Day of Fall!

A photo of my husband riding his ATV through fall foliage with the caption: Happy first day of fall

 

I’m not a huge fan of heat and humidity (or bugs), so I love the transition from summer to autumn. Fall is my favorite time to ride, too, because it’s not as dry and dusty or too hot to wear layers (which help protect me from my RZR’s seatbelt and rogue branches).

At the same time, it also means winter is coming and the clock is ticking down toward closing up camp. It always goes by too quickly, but I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts.

The Stacey Family’s Top 5 Movies

During dinner on Saturday night, my oldest randomly asked me what my favorite movie OF ALL TIME is and my brain froze up on me. One favorite movie? There is no way I could narrow it down to one movie, no matter how many hours I spent obsessing over it. But I did, after obsessing for only a few hours, manage to narrow my favorites down to an all-time Top 5, and forced my family to do the same.

My Top 5:

Tangled

Armageddon

The Heat

A Knight’s Tale

Die Hard

(I had a hard time leaving Miracle off the list but as my oldest pointed out, it’s mostly blah blah blah and then the insanely emotional ending.)

My husband’s Top 5:

Open Range

Last of the Dogmen (I also love this movie madly.)

Pulp Fiction

Dances With Wolves

The Shootist (My favorite John Wayne movies both also star Maureen O’Hara: The Quiet Man and McLintock!)¬†(They put the exclamation point on the title, not me.)

His honorable mentions because he cheats: Casablanca, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Zombieland, El Dorado

My 22 year old son’s Top 5:

Master and Commander

Spider-Man 2

Pacific Rim

Dunkirk

The Empire Strikes Back

My 16 year old son’s Top 5:

Pacific Rim

Mad Max: Fury Road

Rogue One

Guardians of the Galaxy

A Knight’s Tale

My sons’ taste in movies might be one of the my greatest achievements as a mom. (Edited to add: except Spider-Man 2. He must get that from his father.)¬†What are your Top 5?

My current Top 3 movies

My iPad Mini doesn’t have a lot of memory, so I can only carry three movies around at a time. They change from time to time (Pacific Rim¬†and¬†How the Grinch Stole Christmas¬†cycle through a lot)¬†but my current Top 3 are¬†Beauty and the Beast,¬†Goon, and¬†Wonder Woman. And¬†Goon: Last of the Enforcers¬†will be joining them in a couple of days. (I’ll delete other stuff to squeeze in four movies, lol.)

What three movies would you choose to carry around with you right now?

I have a cover for HOLD HER AGAIN!

Cover of Hold Her Again

A country-music star returns home to win back the woman he loves in this charming holiday novella from New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey.

Ava Wright isn’t happy to see her high school sweetheart rolling into their hometown a few weeks before Christmas. He’s only come back to bury his estranged father, but there’s no way she’ll be able to avoid him. No one can: he’s become a country-music superstar since going solo and leaving Ava behind.

Jace Morrow grew up believing “money can’t buy happiness” was something people said to make themselves feel better. But now he knows it’s the truth: no matter how many number-one hits he has, he’ll never recapture the magic of singing with Ava. Missing her‚ÄĒloving her‚ÄĒand living with making the wrong choice in life were what made him who he is.

When Jace is roped into being part of the town’s annual Christmas party, he only cares about earning Ava’s forgiveness. And though Ava’s heart has never healed, she loved Jace too much and for too long to shut him out when he’s hurting. As they fall in love all over again, they’re both faced with choices for their future‚Ķand this time Jace intends to make the right one.

It releases October 23rd, and it’s available for preorder now:
