Hey beauts, it’s been a bit! Too long. How are you? How is your soul?
I am feeling relaxed and happy these days, and sometimes that just feels stinking good. I have been trying to soak up all of life lately and treasure it – treasure my people, my man, our home, the little things that make life big and juicy.
I just finished watching ‘Parenthood’ and OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS. I know I am seven years late to the game *insert monkey covering eyes emoji*, but we can talk about that later.
I try not to watch too much television (I deleted Netflix, I love it way too much – all my productivity goes out the window) but fell deep into the glorious waters of ‘Parenthood’. I get so bored with shows and movies – if they are a teeny bit boring to me, I’m DONE. But ‘Parenthood’. I will be recommending this piece of cultural GOLD to people for years to come.
Why is ‘Parenthood’ so good? First of all, it’s real. It authentically portrays the reality of being part of a family. So many shows are not deep in this way: they kind of skim over the family dynamics and this is not real. I love how layered ‘Parenthood’ is. I know other shows do not hone in on how families operate, and I love how ‘Parenthood’ is all about exploring the relationships and deep, real, difficulties that families go through.
The characters on ‘Parenthood’ fight. This is real. Families fight, and it is not comfortable.
‘Parenthood’ is so emotional. The way they use emotion connects with the way people process realistic life events. The storytelling is done so well. The casting is amazing. THIS SHOW IS SO GOOD.
