    1. YES! It is made for you, Becky... and all of us Hallmark Channel aficionados. Some of the movies are LOTS better than others, but they all have on commonality: they're all cute stories. Let me know if you discover any favorites. :)

  3. Ooo, this sounds so good! I think I'd love it, since I love Hallmark and You Again is one of my favorite rom-coms. Thanks so much for sharing, Rissi!! <3
