Unfortunately, nursing school has kept me so busy that I have had very little time to blog. It is hard to believe that I am finally in the home stretch, with about two months of school left. On top of all the excitement of soon being able to become a RN, a very special event took place in my life a few weeks ago. On March 1, my best friend and the most amazing person I know asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I was completely taken by surprise with the proposal, and it was perfect in every sense of the word. That was my inspiration for this post. In the Golden Era of Hollywood, much like today, there were few marriages that lasted a lifetime. The first few couples depicted are those who spend their whole lives together creating countless memories. The last few, happen to be some of my favorite Hollywood romances, that were cut too short, but who had enough love in them to last a lifetime.
