away we go

Has anyone else seen this? We watched it over the weekend and it was so cute. I swear we didn't have it at the top of our netflix queue because it happens to be about a young-ish couple preparing for their first baby. Didn't even realize that's what it was about. But that of course made me love it a little bit more.



It's sweet and funny and has a great cast... and the alternative parenting portion of the movie is HI-LARIOUS.

And the whole soundtrack is Alexi Murdoch. I like him, also contributing to my enjoyment of the movie.

LOVE this movie! I literally watch it once a week - well, my favorite scenes! The tone and rhythm of the film offer such comfort and I aspire to be such a couple as Burt and Verona! There's something about this movie that makes me feel like everything will be okay! Glad you enjoyed it!

i watched it just a couple of weeks ago and i LOVED it too! it was very sweet and funny, touching too. really enjoyed it :)

i was actually surprised how much i liked Maya Rudolph and John Krasinski together. Maya was so serious, in a very good way.

We just watched it over the holidays, and I loved it too! I adore John Krasinski in just about anything & agree that the alternative parenting scenes with Maggie Gyllenhal were hysterical. Laughing just thinking about the stroller...

I didn't know what this was about either when we watched it, and it's now one of my most all time favorite movies! So great. It's just so sweet.

This was one of my favorite movies from last summer - we decided it was a must-see even though the air conditioning in the moive theater was out of order. Yikes.
But, totally worth it.

I wanted to pass along this website...I'm not positive that this is completely "your style" but they have the most darling "bohemian" baby clothing and accessories!
