It’s that time of year when Hallmark becomes even more of my personality. Yes, it can become more of my personality and no I am not ashamed of that. I love this time of year. My inner basic bitch emerges, sweaters become my personality, and I may even toss on a pair of jeans.
Yes, let us all honor our inner basic bitch and allow Hallmark to plan your Saturday nights. Dating is hard, marriage is hard, love is hard. Being alone is hard. So yes, the inner basic bitch in me is ready to fall into love.
Or something like that.
Hallmark has released their Fall Into Love schedule and TBH it has me excited. And before you judge me for not posting this last week, I’ve already judged myself. I slacked and I have no excuses. Just is what it is.
The first movie has already premiered on September 2nd. Love in the Great Smoky Mountains: A National Park Romance was a winner for this site.
So lets break down the rest.
