Movie Night - The Other Boleyn Girl


This was a great show but so sad. Women were traded like cattle and used like assets. Fathers traded their young daughters for monetary gain.

My husband, son (Jake for his college graduation) and I visited Hever Castle (Ann Boleyn's childhood home), when we were in England last year. We saw paintings of Ann hung on the walls. Having seen her home and family paintings, makes this story/movie seem tangible and real. It was very emotional.

And, in reality, Ann Boleyn looked a lot like my niece, Serena. At least I think so, what do you think?





What a rough world it was. Thank God we’ve come a long way baby!

Here are a few photos we took of Hever Castle.

Beautiful tudor places but the days of Ann Boleyn were rough. :( She ended up having her head chopped off because of her husband. King Henry VIII.

I think Serena does look like Ann...I hope she doesn't have the same type of husband.....

I hope her husband is as rich as Henry but a whole lot nicer.
