What does this template have to do with arts and entertainment, anyway?

Wondering why I chose this particular template? Funny how that happened.

I was looking at templates, rejecting quite a few but adding almost as many to my list of maybes. When I saw this one, I knew I had to have it. I just didn't know where I was going to use it.

I narrowed down the list to a more manageable size, still trying to assign templates to each blog. When I saw this one, I actually thought, Ellie's Couch.

If that were the scene outside my window, I'd want to curl up on the couch and read a good book or maybe watch TV. Either that or just enjoy the gorgeous view.

Then when I asked for my husband's opinion about which templates to use on which blogs, he also chose this one, but for a different reason. "It's cinematic," he said. I realized he was right. That gorgeous scene could easily have been taken from a movie.

So, that's how it happened. I realize that most people probably won't see it as a logical choice, but it makes perfect sense to me. Maybe someday I'll change it, but for now, it's here to stay.
