"and I seem to find the happiness I seek..."

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance in Top Hat, 1935. Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin.

Growing up, I mainly watched black & white movies and musicals with my mom. This was the way I pictured romance— I thought that naturally, when you dated someone, you would break out into spontaneous song.

Needless to say, when I got my first boyfriend, it was a great disappointment.
