What Movie is This?

I just realized that it has been well over a year since I have done a "what movie is this" posting, so I figured it is about time.  Something recently made me think of this movie as I was exploring New York with my family.

Maxfield Parrish Skies

This morning, Maxfield Parrish skies woke New York City.  
And during my recent visit to Colorado, I got to enjoy many Parrish sunsets.  
I always associate him with puffy clouds turned peachy-pink by the sun.  
When I went back to look at his paintings online though, I wondered why I so associate him with these clouds because there are only a few pieces of his work that seem to include these dreamy images.  I found it funny to see how many other people associated Mr. Parrish with these same skies - you need only google Parrish clouds & you will see exactly what I'm talking about.

New York

My mom & her 3 sisters are coming into the city for a visit next week and I am so excited. It will be the first "sister trip" like this in a very, very, very long time.

To make sure we make the very most of their time, I feel I need to set up an itinerary for their 4 days here. I have started making lists of restaurant ideas for each neighborhood, indoor and outdoor activities for each neighborhood (in case the weather doesn't act the way we think it should), and maps, Even though I live in this great city & navigate it fine on my own, when you're walking 4 other people around, you don't want to go a block out of the way because you didn't turn where you meant to, or to be the one saying for a third time in a day "I swear it was right here! Let's try the next block." So, I'm getting my act together to play the very best hostess and tour guide.

With all the planning, this week has been ALL NEW YORK for me & it has made me step back & realize all that I have at my fingertips. I'm a lucky girl.
