say hello to rosie
Last night I finally watched the movie version of one of my favorite books, Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. It's the story of a 1930s traveling circus, a young vet, a star performer, and Rosie, the incredible elephant who brings them together despite the brutal ringmaster trying to keep them apart. I adore the book, and whenever I love a book, I always approach the film version with trepidation. Hollywood just has a way of ruining a good book, you know what I mean? Well, a full year after its theatrical release, I caught Water for Elephants the movie on HBO, and I loved it. Beautifully filmed, it brought the book to life - and watching it made my latest purchase, an elephant necklace from J.Crew, even more special. J.Crew calls it the "Lucy" pendant, but you can call her "Rosie."
