Anne of Green Gables

OK, so I have a confession to make.  My sister is travel nursing in Maine right now and got the awesome opportunity to visit Prince Edward Island on some of her days off.  All I can say is lucky gal!!  I am SO jealous.  I hope I get to go there someday. 

But that's not the confession.  I asked her to get me some Anne of Green Gables souvenirs from there since I am a die hard fan of Anne.  LOVE those movies.  More than any other movies I have ever seen.  And I'm telling you, seeing those souvenirs made me want to watch the movies again.

I wanted to show them to Ally.  So we watched them.  And LOVED them of course.  TWICE.  All of the way through!!  I know, crazy.  But ridiculously fun.  And now I'm having withdrawals and wondering if I should watch them a third time.  He he.

I know, I am probably the only one who is that nuts over Anne of Green Gables.  Especially at my age.  But I don't care.  I love them and I always will.  I love those actors.  Love Anne and Gilbert, and Marilla, and Matthew and all of the others.  They are just the BEST.

So now to ease the pain of being done watching them the second time, Ally and I have been watching Anne and Gil on YouTube.  I know.  INSANE.  But that's just how we are.  Here's one of my favorite clips I wanted to share with you in case you are a fan too. 


Isn't that just SO sweet?  Are there any other Anne of Green Gables fans out there?

I seriously gasped and put my hand over my mouth when I saw this post. I LOVE anything and everything Anne! I have been hooked since I was a teenager and I am now 38 years old. I have all the books and movies. I have lost count how many people I have forced to watch the Anne Movies with me. LOL I really enjoyed the clip you posted, it was like reliving all of the movies in 6 mins! I am with you on Mathew, Marilla, Anne and Gilbert.... I just sigh writing this. Have you read the books too? They are so good, I wish Miss Lavendar had been added to the movies. She would have been so funny. I could keep going on about my love for this... so I will stop. :) Thanks for a great post!

Oh I do hope you get to go there some day - we went when my daughter was 10, she and I are both Anne fans, and it did not disappoint! We baked chocolate chip cookies all summer to sell, earned enough $ to pay for the stage production, too. I have 3 fridge magnets from that trip :) Hope your sister brings you some great souvenirs.

What??? I LOVE Anne of Green Gables!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! It's my go-to "sick" movie - I like to snuggle up on the couch and watch the series when I'm sick. :) I loved the books when I was young, love the movies, all the characters...sigh. Going to Prince Edward Island is definitely on my list, too!

Love Anne of Green Gables!!!!! My sister in laws and several cousins plan to have a girls trip and go to Prince Edward Island someday. Our local public television has had it on on the weekends so I have the DVR set up to record it. My girls watched it for 5 minutes and were hooked. LOVE LOVE LOVE Anne of Green Gables!!!!

Wow did that ever bring back memories!! The theme music makes me cry every. time. :) Now I can't wait to watch this with my daughter...hmmm...I think you just gave me a great Christmas and/or birthday gift idea for her!! Thanks!
Is there more than three movies out in the series? I have some sort of weird niggling recollection of seeing one of an older Anne somewhere...

I'm totally in love with them too! I always wanted to marry a Gilbert Blythe.
