  1. I asked Hallmark for Sincerely, Truly Yours. for June Weddings because of Wedding Ring inside the envelope

    Starring Marshall Williams & Natalie Hall

  2. What wonderful news.

    These all look great - some of these I've known were out there such as Love Is A Piece Of Cake and Sincerely, Yours Truly which I am particularly looking forward to!

    I actually much prefer UPtv to Lifetime.

  3. Awesome news!!!!! Plus we will get Heartland season 14 likely in the summer

    1. I was looking forward to this too but unfortunately from what I've seen on their instagram they added a gay character and they made something sad happen to a main character:(

    2. Oh noooo.... not Heartland!

      I just looked this up. I had to. I can hardly believe it - the sad thing that happens to a main character is unbelievable. I knew the actor wanted less on screen time, but this news was still very shocking.

      I can't imagine the gut punch this must've been to the Canadian fans who've watched all 13 previous seasons and sat down to watch the premiere of season 14 Sunday night - and then this event took place in the first couple of minutes. Wow. Just reading about it is very emotional.

      I'm not going to give any details away for those who don't want to know, but if you're a Heartland fan who follows any of their social media you're bound to see it because fans are really talking.

      I'm very much in shock.

    3. Me too! I think it was VERY wrong of them, especially after the year that everyone just had. In my mind I will make up my own ending, since I won't watch any further episodes. It's a shame. No one is going to keep watching it now, and it will be one of those shows that is so great and then fizzles out and has a few dud seasons at the end. Kind of like little house on the prairie, when they blew up walnut grove. It was just SO "out there" as a plot that in my mind, the show ends with them all happily in the town. And that is what I am doing with heartland. I think I'm just especially bummed that I won't be able to watch any more now

    4. I remember the cast of WCTH came out in support of the gay agenda when Hallmark added those movies. Especially Erin Krakow and Paul Greene. Appears the actors think anything is okay. I know you said you did not think WCTH would do that, and I pray they don't. Can't believe Heartland did it, but perhaps all the shows are subject to that agenda. These days are days like we have never known. May God have mercy on us!

    5. Yeah I would assume that When Calls the Heart would be safe since it is set in the 1900s and that lifestyle was still treated as the sin that it is.

  4. Great! Always good for options other than Hallmark. Lifetime provides none after Christmas.


    1. Well said, Misty.

      Kudos to UPtv.

      Lifetime has muscled in on the Christmas movie scene and then gives little for the rest of the year.

      Personally feel Lifetime is a poor second to Hallmark who mostly air a new movie every week.

      Considering the circumstances last year I think Hallmark did very well with their Christmas programme.

  5. I’m watching Blueprint to the Heart

    I saw Marshall Williams’ character ttalks to his ex-girlfriend

    The rest of the moves
