I haven't seen the movie yet--I haven't even read the book. But I do follow Julie Powell's blog. Julia Child was an amazing woman. I think most foodies realize that--if they don't, they need to dig themselves out of whatever hole they've been living in. She wasn't afraid to make mistakes or make a fool of herself. What an awesome life lesson that is!
Today has been a pretty blah day. I needed some inspiration and after reading Julie's blog post for today and watching her clip on Nightline, what more inspiration do I need than that?!! :) Julie is an inspiration, herself!
My Netflix que is now bursting with Julia's TV show videos. I've only watched her a few times as a youngster. I'll be sitting on pins and needles for those to come in the mail! Too bad I can't watch them instantly. Oh well.
Julia's birthday is coming up next week and you can bet that I'm putting something extra special together for the occasion on my Examiner column.
