This week, my husband and I will celebrate our ninth wedding anniversary, and in honor of true love, we’ll be watching The Princess Bride. It’s our favorite silly romance and holds a special place in our hearts.
If you haven’t seen this 1980s classic, you should. It has everything you want in a movie: a fairy tale romance, swords, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, and even Billy Crystal. In the end, Wesley, who has recently been "mostly dead," (which is still slightly alive) defeats Prince Humperdinck with the help of a giant and a vengeful swordsman, and he saves Princess Buttercup. Ultimately, we learn that “wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva so tweasure your wuv.” And that’s exactly what we plan to do, treasure our love.
