Guest Post: SATC


I have only been blogging for a few months and am not even sure now how I found Tracy....you know how blog leads to another! But hers was one of the very first blogs that I followed and she was one of my very first followers. I loved that she loved "Sex and the City"....I loved that she bought those fab-u-lous blue Manolos in NYC as her wedding shoes.....and I just loved, and felt an immediate connection with, her warmth, the loving spirit of her blog and just her.....I think I might have even left her about three responses immediately about stuff I felt needed to tell her.....and not remotely put off by the crazy Brit who appeared to be stalking her, she left me a lovely message and, happily, a connection and a friendship was made!!!!

Tracy is just a darling.....a warm, gorgeous, bright and talented girl who is vocal and enthusiastic about the things that she loves.....and someone who you immediately want to be friends with. I read her blog every day and always look forward to it.....I even asked her if her beautiful family would consider adopting me......cute as ever, bless her, she said of course they would!! Great parents have great children and clearly her Mom and Dad have excelled......Tracy is a special girl and TL is a lucky man.

When she asked for guest-bloggers, I put my hand right up.....although it's the first time I have done this......and as "SATC" was what we first bonded over, it seemed appropriate to write about it for my guest post.

I have a good friend who doesn't like the show at all (I know, crazy huh....how could that be!), she thinks it is unrealistic because "no one really lives like that"......well, I spent a few months living in NYC and I have friends who have lived their single lives there and I beg to differ. NYC is a unique city...they talk about a "New York minute" where things happen quicker there than anywhere else, the dating game is fast and furious and brutal at times.....and like most big cities there are a lot of single people there.
For me the show was as much about friendships as it was about dating. Apart from the fabulous fashions and the fact that it was set in NYC, I loved "SATC" because of the friendships and the relationships. I loved Carrie Bradshaw.....I still love her.....I watched every single episode and really really missed it when the show finally ended, it was like losing a friend....I loved the fact that the girls were so open about their different relationships - the crazy boyfriends, the good boyfriends, the Mr-Right-For-Now boyfriends and all the weirdos too.....but at the end of of everything, the girls were always there for each other....always......and to me that's a universal thing....men come and go but your girlfriends are forever....they endure all things.

I really wasn't sure that there should be an SATC movie as I felt the series ended just when it should and sometimes you don't need to know what happened next.....but how wrong I was!! I saw "SATC -The Movie" and LOVED it......I had a smile on my face the whole way through....well, apart from when I was crying, that is!!

I saw just yesterday that filming has just started for the movie sequel......I am excited.....and even more excited now I know that Big is back.....Aidan was sexy, Jack Berger was cute and gorgeous.....but it was always meant to be Carrie and Big.

"There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous." (Carrie Bradshaw)

I wish love and happiness to Tracy and Tim.....and I can't wait to see wedding photos of the beautiful bride and hear about their European honeymoon! Thanks for letting me steal your blog for the day honey :)

I never got into the show at first... but only because I didn't get HBO. Once it hit main stream TV, I instantly saw the appeal. And the movie was fabulous. Can't wait for the next one!!

Love it! You find the best photographs. It made me want to go home and watch everything all over again!

Jules said...

What a sweet post! Although I gotta say... I am *totally* turned off by Big and Carrie. They don't belong together and should be kept far far apart. I hate him and as much as I loved the movie, I almost didn't like it because they did get married in the end )=
But I do love SATC and loved looking at the different shots of CB- she definitely has some looks!

Lovely guest post, I can't wait to see SATC2 and loved every single photo!! I agree with everything you said about Tracy, she truly is a doll.

Great post! You had me from the title, as I am a SATC FIEND. It's kind of disgusting.

Yes yes yes. AWESOME POST. And that episode where Carrie and Aiden break up still tugs at my heart. I wanted to do my hair like that for my wedding but chickened out. : )

I absolutely love this post. I have loved SATC for-ev-er, so this post was just perfect. And I agree - Big and Carrie were simply meant for each other.
Congrats to Tracy! I cannot WAIT to see all your wedding pictures, girl! =)

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's
both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you,
you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that
not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
I'm very happy that I came across this during my search for something regarding this.
