Sometimes Family Chooses You
They say you can’t choose your relatives but you can choose your family. Though I wholeheartedly agree with this I also believe that sometimes it’s the other way around.
Sometimes that crazy family you never would have picked chooses you and becomes an indispensable – no matter how hard you try to avoid this.
Grace & Frankie, a Netflix Original series now streaming globally, is the perfect example.
Beyond the talented actors (and their chemistry), beyond the beautiful settings (hello beach house!), and the laugh out loud moments, this series has touched me in a weird way.
Wait. Not, like, in a w e i r d way…. that just sounded icky and gross. But I was hooked from the first few minutes and experienced a slew of emotions as I binge-watched the first season.
I won’t spoil it for you, but I will say it was very well done. Classy, tasteful… Funny as heck.
Families are complicated. Families are a pain in the ass. Families are what saves us. Enjoy this one, and be thankful for the family that is yours on this Mother’s Day weekend.
