Practical Magic

This is one of my absolute favorite movies. I've watched this movie a billion times and it never gets old. The first time I ever saw this movie I watched it with my best friend Mar. From then on out it has been our movie, the one movie that describes our relationship to a T.

I want to share a video I found on YouTube that takes parts of the movie, mixed to music, that perfectly portrays my friendship with Mar. Although this video was made for someone else's best friend and in the end it says to my best friend Octavia, whoever that is lol, the music and video parts that the person chose for this compilation is perfect and I had to share it. I hope you guys enjoy this video as much as I did when I found it. Also, let me share my favorite quote from the movie, one that keeps me going when all the strange wacky stuff seems to be overwhelming everything else, "My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage!" Thanks for stopping by during the Practical Magic Blog Party!

Practical Magic is my absolute favorite movie as well. I love every single part of it. The wonderful witchy house, the love between the Owen's women, just all of it.

Willow Silverhorse said...

I absolutely agree Dessa! I love every single part of this movie... It's so inspirational in every way. I actually had a really hard time deciding what I was going to do for this blog party lol...

Oh I never get tired of seeing those scenes and the music on this is perfect. I'm so glad you made it to the party and I'm looking forward to seeing you at the tea party! Thank you for sharing.

I just LOVE your blog decorations! I'm such a newbie...never heard of blog parties or contests or....ANYTHING until the Practical Magic party. That's what I get for keeping my head in academic books! So this is all new to me and I'm loving what I see!

I'm curious to know which college you're at and what you're studying, since I'm a PhD candidate myself. We college witches have to stick together!
