Ellen Pompeo looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL as always in all 3 of those pictures. Her beauty just completely stops me in my tracks and makes me think... wow, she's been blessed by the grace of God with true beauty.


Watched the video and Ellen said the chances of Meredith and McDreamy getting married were GOOD and she thought it would happen evidentually! Yeah...maybe thats a hint of things to come! In Patricks interview with Entertainment weekly he commented that he wished that Meredith and Derek would get married too!
Maybe these two are trying to tell us something!!!!!! Lets hope so!

did she cut her hair? It looks like she did. It's probably just waves in her hair that make it look short. Anyhoo, congrats to her. And as always she looks amazing.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

The first time I kissed my wife, she wasn't my wife then, she was just this girl in a bar. But when we kissed, it was like, I gotta tell you, it was like I'd never kissed any other woman before. It was like my first kiss. The right kiss.


[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."
