Introducing “{Hall}Mark My Words”!

Welcome to “{Hall}Mark My Words”!

I’ve been toying with this idea for a while… so I thought it would be fun to start a blog on all things Hallmark! Because who doesn’t love a good Hallmark movie, right?

I’ll be honest. I used to make fun of Hallmark stuff when I was younger because I thought the movies were just so ridiculously cheesy. And I was immensely hurt by Willie LaHaye’s death in the Love Comes Softly series. Plus, I grew up without cable, so my Hallmark knowledge was very limited. But then, a couple of years ago, I got sucked into When Calls the Heart. Let’s just say, being on maternity leave, I needed something to do while feeding the baby at 2 AM. And I binge-watched the first two seasons on Netflix and was horrified to find out (SPOILER ALERT) that Charles was proposing to Elizabeth with Jack right outside the schoolhouse. #WUT. I bought season 3 on Amazon– thank goodness for Prime– and quickly caught up. Then I found the #Hearties. And then, I started researching cable companies that were cheaper than what we were getting. I finally scored an awesome deal with Directv (Not an ad, I promise) and cut my cable bill in half, PLUS I was getting Hallmark Channel and Movies and Mysteries. And everything snowballed from there.

I’m a huge rom-com gal. My teen years were filled with watching movies like Sweet Home Alabama, The Notebook, Serendipity, While You Were Sleeping, You’ve Got Mail, etc. etc. etc. But they aren’t making those movies anymore. In discovering Hallmark, I discovered a whole slew of rom-coms! And don’t get me started on the Christmas movies! I mean, where have these movies been my whole life?!

I can appreciate the hokey cheesiness, the happy feels, and the heartwarming moments. I appreciate the fact that I can watch some “feel-good” TV after a rough day at work. I also appreciate the family-friendly aspect in that I can watch these movies in the same room as my toddler. It’s just good clean fun.

Through Hallmark, I’ve found some cool friends who also loooove Hallmark. It’s a pretty neat thing when you can just nerd out and live tweet about a show or movie with people who enjoy the same thing you do. And I would be remiss not to give a shout out to my pals at the Hallmarkies Podcast, Rachel and Amber! They were the ones who suggested the name for this blog. Thanks, y’all! And the rest of you– follow their podcast. They’re hilarious. <3

Anyways, I’ll do my best to recap the major movies and live-tweet along. My plan is to live-tweet during the West Coast showing (because for sure my kids will be in bed by then) and then I’ll recap the movies the following week. Sound good?

Follow me on Twitter and if you’re an obvious #Hallmarkies fan– Hearties, Chessies, Goodies, Peeties, Hallmarkies– I’ll do my best to follow back! You can find me @hallmarkmywords. See y’all soon!
