I love this video by Jem. The words and music to this song. "It's amazing. It's amazing. All that you can do. It's amazing, it makes my heart sing. Now it's up to you."
Can a song be any more inspiring? It's the theme song to the new movie Julie & Julia, which is opening tomorrow. I'm so excited to see it.
It's about food, love, blogging, and making your dreams come true. That you can really change your life. And that it is based on two true stories makes my heart feel so full and happy.
Another true story involving food and changing your life keeps popping up on my radar too. Did you read about the Mortgage Apple Cake? I first read about Angela Logan a few weeks ago. Her house was getting ready to be foreclosed upon. She needed to earn some money fast, so she decided to do what she loved. Her family's apple cake was always a hit, so she decided that if she could sell 100 cakes in 10 days at $40.00 each, then she could earn the money she needed.
Logan's baking, hard work, and determination worked. The Hilton Hasbrouck Heights and Bake Me A Wish! joined in to help her and she's saved her house. Read the article here.
Maybe her story might end up a book and a movie too. Who knows? Stranger things have happened. All I know is that when you combine hope, food, and love, magic happens. It's amazing.
*Update + correction 8/13/09* I just saw the movie yesterday. Loved it! I'll be posting soon. Sadly, this song by Jem was not in the movie and it's not on the Julie & Julia movie soundtrack. I guess it was just used to promote the movie.
