Christmas in Love | Movie Review #3

I love Christmas movies so much! I can't get enough of them. When I am staying at my boyfriend's house I get separation anxiety because he doesn't have cable, so I can't watch the Hallmark channel 😭.

Christmas in Love came out this year (2018) and it's about Ellie, who loves to craft wreaths, stockings, and ornaments for Christmas. Her dream is to become a crafter, but she is terrified to take that leap of faith and move toward her dream career goals.

Ellie works in the small-town bakery, making famous Christmas Kringles. Everything is fine until the new big-city CEO, Nick Carlingson, visits the bakery and plans to modernize it - which will layoff a lot of employees. His dad didn't agree with this decision. So, he sent Nick to experience the town at Christmas, to get his hands dirty at the bakery and learn how to make Christmas Kringles, but most importantly to get know the people and why the bakery is a success.

Once Nick visits the food bank and meets more townspeople, he starts to have an open heart about the bakery, but still believes that automation is better. Struggling with her aspiration to become an entrepreneur, Ellie begins to fall for Nick, however, she doesn't trust him. Especially after she unintentionally saw the automation plans on his laptop.

After falling for Ellie, Nick realized the automation wasn't the right decision for the Carlingson Bakery. So, he came up with new plans to make the bakery more successful.

In the end, will Ellie trust Nick and follow her dreams?? I don't know. Well, I do know but you don't.

Ellie's decorating skills in this movie are amazing! I wish I was that talented with a glue gun. My favorite scene from the movie is when Ellie is trying to teach Nick how to frost a Christmas Kringle. It was hilarious because all the icing came out of the tube and that's totally me when it comes to frosting. Another one of my favorite scenes is when Nick, her dad, her mother, and her best friend help her craft wreaths, stockings and ornaments for her booth at the festival.

There are so many other adorable scenes from this movie, which makes it worth to watch. I think I say this every movie review, but if you watch this Christmas movie, you won't regret it.

Christmas in love (starring Broke D'Orsay and Daniel Lissing) is one of my favorite movies that premiered this year.

Promise me one thing,

You'll watch Christmas in Love.
