Have you read The Help?? It is a MUST read!! It is set in Jackson during the 1960s and focuses on recent college-graduate, Skeeter Phelan, and her desire to give a voice to the black maids who work in the white households of Jackson, MS. She wants to publish their stories in order to shed light on the unjust race relations. It is funny, sad, and thought-provoking!! Please read it!!
I am telling you about this book because I am so excited!! A sweet friend of mine got me a ticket to meet Kathryn Stockett, the author, and the cast of the up-coming movie, which is being filmed in Greenwood. I am pumped to say the least!!! I believe the night entails a reading from the author and a chance to meet the cast. Here are a few people that I will be rubbing elbows with:
Bryce Dallas Howard- Ron Howard's daughter and the new Victoria from Eclipse. I might be most excited about this encounter :) Howard will be playing the rich, snobby Hilly Holbrook.
Viola Davis- She has been in movies such as Doubt and Law Abiding Citizen. I cannot wait to see her as Aibileen.
Emma Stone- She is known most for her roles in Superbad and House Bunny- obviously not the deepest movies, but I really think she will make an excellent Skeeter!!
I've been thumbing through some of my pictures lately, and I can't help but concentrate on a couple of things I've noticed with Ginger B lately. Please allow me to list them, for I do love a list.
1. Silliness!! When did my child become such a funny, beautiful, strange face-maker?? Seriously!! It does totally match her little personality, and I do hope she holds on to it as she gets older. However, I would prefer a little more serious facial expressions for Christmas cards, senior portraits, and wedding pictures.
2. Gap! As in the big one in her front two teeth. Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought that a gap could be so precious!! Obviously, she loves it too because she's constantly showing it off.
I am wife to Hutson and mother to Ginger Belle. Above all, Jesus Christ is my personal Lord and Savior! I adore all things Southern and have a severe love affair with food. I find that all I blog about is my daughter, but I am completely okay with that...and so is my mother :) I teach middle school, so I'm not afraid of many things. I love reading comments, so if you drop by please share what's on your mind!!
