Well hello there.
I am sorry, I have abandoned you. I’d like to say that I was doing something exotic and interesting over my break from the internets over the last several days, like vacationing somewhere hot or something, but no no.
Nope, I got sucked into this:
I discovered Downton Abbey. I have been hearing really great things about it lately, and I was thoroughly intrigued. Since I love a good period drama (hello Road to Avonlea and Mad Men!), I decided to check it out. I downloaded the first season on iTunes last week, and after the first episode I was hooked. I could not. stop. watching it. Just one episode after another. I was obsessed.
I loved the characters, could not get enough of the story lines, and died for the costumes. I basically just thought everything about the show was awesome, and I wanted to pack up my things and live in it, as Lady Lindsey, the privileged daughter of an earl. I would never have to do anything for myself again, including comb my hair or dress myself. Awesome.
So that is pretty much all I have been doing in my spare time, and I ended up watching the entire first two seasons (including the Christmas special), and as of last night I am all caught up. Now I am in the same boat as the rest of you Downton Abbey fans, tingling in anticipation for season 3, which doesn’t start until September. I already miss it. I may have to re-watch the first two seasons to help with the emptiness that now resides in my heart.
Anyway, I just wanted to post something to break the ice, and I hope to be back to regularly scheduled blogging this week. I find it really difficult to write something after a period of not blogging, so this is me easing back into it!
I hope you all had a great weekend!
