No marriage required.
I have to say, Charlotte was one of the most surprising things about this film. They could have made her annoying but instead make her a very funny character. They could have made her a spoiled brat, but while she is a bit spoiled, instead they made her a very caring friend and pretty much a sister to Tiana. They could have made her a bland character just someone for Naveen to have to marry, but instead they gave her an actual personality and made her likable. Finally, this scene.
Even though it’s obvious that to Charlotte, finding true love is her dream, her ‘restaurant’, she is more than willing to give it up for her friend. She doesn’t even take a few moments to think it over. Her and Tiana have such a strong friendship, she would rather let her friend - who has found true love, not just a simple crush or anything like that - live happily ever after herself than marry a prince. And afterwards, she stays positive about it, not only because her best friend is happy, but she’s knows she’ll find her prince someday too, she just has to wait a little longer, and that’s perfectly fine with her.
Probably one of the best side characters and role models in the Disney canon.
Another thing about Charlotte is that she could have very easily footed the bill for Tiana’s restaurant but she didn’t.
NOT because she didn’t want to or anything of the sort, I imagine she would have brought it up hundreds of times. No, she knew that Tiana wanted to EARN her restaurant and respected her friend’s wishes. Tiana has worked hard for everything that she has in her life and has never been handed anything, in no way would she want that to change when it comes to her life’s dream.
So instead of just handing Tiana and her family money, both Charlotte and her father had given them work and ample opportunities to earn said money. She never once saw them as a charity case, but instead as hard-working individuals that want to earn things the honest way.
Not once did she let their different social classes interfere with the friendship she has with Tiana. She was there for her friend 100% and understood her well enough to push aside her own dreams to help fulfill Tiana’s.
REALLY, I COULD GO ON FOR DAYS ABOUT HOW GREAT CHARLOTTE IS.
So very true. We should strive to be ourselves in all things. And if you don’t know who you are just yet, do some soul searching, find yourself, and then put it out there for the world to enjoy.
My bunny logged on and let me know she was still out there and still interested.
I am thankful for that.
What? I can’t be thankful at Easter? Where does it say I can only be thankful at Thanksgiving?
I’m thankful every day. But especially today. —Miss Heather

This girl deserves an award for doing what a lot of us want to do.
This girl. I must be friends with her.
Although I should speak to her about passing up the Game of Thrones display… —Heather
I hope I can download it without getting arrested by the feds. I don’t get hbo.

*sighs* …Yes. —h
It will be bold, dramatic, heroic! Yeah, something classic, like Dynaguy!
Oh! He had a great look! Oh, the cape, and the boots …
But I LIKE capes. Supergirl NEEDS a cape. I’m trying to imagine Tinkerbell with a cape, but the wings get in the way. —Heather
“OK. I’ll lick you until you’re not sad.”
^ ME IF I WAS A KITTY
When my kitty friends were feeling down I would try to cheer them up and make them feel happy again <3
My kitten licked me this morning for a good while. Maybe to make up for being such a terror-cat during the night last night? —Heather
