Happy Anniversary, Westley and Buttercup!

I could watch The Princess Bride every day until I dry up and float away. It’s that good. The perfect mix of adventure, charm, comedy, romance, and wit … it’s a gem for all ages.

But perhaps one of my favorite things to come out of The Princess Bride is Princess Buttercup. We loved the character and the movie so much, that we bestowed her name upon our most precious of characters, our Basset hound … Penelope Buttercup. And oh, what a wonderful character she was. On this 25th anniversary of The Princess Bride, I am reminded of how much I loved our Penny, and how much she loved us. Look how beautiful she was.
