An Ode to Downton Abbey
Why is it that you have to go away?
Indefinitely, I’d love for you to stay
But at least I still get to press “play…”
ONE LAST TIME
Guys, I’m totally not ready for Downton Abbey to be over! It’s been my staple January show for FOUR YEARS (I got in on the fun two years into the game), and I’m just not ready to part with it. Sure, I know shows can’t last forever, but six seasons just doesn’t feel like enough. And what I don’t want is for the finale to end and everyone just goes about living their lives, leaving me to use my own imagination as to how each person gets on. I’d rather the finale last four hours tonight and just show me how every single person lives a super long, happy life, then passes away. Or at LEAST to show what happens to Downton during World War Two. Perhaps they take in some children from London? I feel like there’s good material there. At any rate, I’m not ready to say goodbye. Are you?
Let’s procrastinate the inevitable adieu of one of the greatest shows on television together.
Here are some of my favorite reads of the week:
-Brooklyn the movie may not have won last week at the Oscars, but it won every award in my book. Here’s a nice comparison of Brooklyn then vs. Brooklyn now. P.S. Have you read the book? Get on it. Brooklyn: A Novel changed everything for me.
-Prepare yourselves: Marimekko is coming to Target NEXT MONTH. TOO AMPED.
-I’m in the market for some new specs, and was looking for companies that are different from the usual suspects. Thanks, Brit + Co!
-This beats 4 pretzels in a foil package any day: Air France + Daniel Boulud = Best In-Flight Meals Ever.
-I always love a good food photography app, and this new one by the LINE Corporation, “Foodie,” looks promising! Have you guys tried it yet?
Happy Sunday/ Happy Last Time That We’ll Ever See A New Episode of Downton Abbey…Day!
