“For more than 200 years, we Owens women have been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong in this town…”
I can’t believe that this year marks the 20th anniversary of one of my favorite movies of all time!
Also, I want to be Aunt Francis when I grow up.
I have been enamored with Practical Magic since its release in 1998, and for most of those years, it’s been my “Spring Cleaning” movie- where I hunker down and really clean out the clutter– and energy– of bygone times.
And with the Spring Equinox fast approaching, it’s high time to get into the swing of things!
We’ve suffered so much grief and loss this year already. I’m looking forward to the color and bloom of Spring, ready for warmer temperatures to stay, and ready to plan a garden! (That’s a whole other post, of course- look for it soon!) I can feel the seeds of joy and peace sprouting in my chest again, and I’m excited for when they finally burst through the dirt that’s covered me. I can feel my inspiration, my muses, gliding along my skin, whipping me into a creative frenzy. I want to conjure, to create again.
And I’m so thankful.
I recently finished reading the prequel to Practical Magic, The Rules of Magic, and it was just as enchanting and endearing– I definitely recommend picking it up! It moves at a smoldering pace, but… oh gosh, I cried a lot reading it, dealing with my own grief as the Owens sisters (and brother!) dealt with theirs.
Do you guys do Spring cleaning, too? Or is that for the birds?!
*TROLL FACE YEP DID THAT*
Happy (early) Spring Equinox, lovers, and may Spring bring us all a sweet bounty.
