Today I’m sharing my favorite entertainment this past year – it’s on my mind because I’ve been lying around feeling sick and needing some entertainment for the last two days! Bless my in-laws, they’ve taken care of my kids, because I’ve been too sick to do so.
Here’s what I’ve been enjoying this last year:
I loved this TV show. I was pretty sad when we finished it, because it might be one of my favorites ever. When I was a kid, I remember listening to Frank Abagnale Jr. share his story on Focus on the Family, and it was super interesting. When the movie inspired by his story, “Catch Me if You Can” came out, I wasn’t really a fan, but this TV show, also inspired by Abagnale Jr., was amazing.
I’m trying to figure out what I loved most – the characters are fantastic, and the writers did such an incredible job with development throughout the show. And there’s that constant pull between wanting Neal Caffrey reform and be the good guy you know he has to be deep down somewhere, but…really loving how incredibly amazing he is at being a con artist. Ben and I were very divided about how we wanted the show to end – I wanted him to reform, and Ben wanted him to keep conning, but the ending was crazy unexpected, and we were both satisfied, and then sad, because that show was just so great.
Rising Strong strongly affected the way I think, so I ordered The Gifts of Imperfection next, and Ben gave me Daring Greatly for my birthday. Anything she writes is fantastic. I wrote about Rising Strong here, and The Gifts here. I’m sure Daring Greatly will inspire a blog post or two in the future.
I was curious about Instagram for a long time, but since I’m not the hugest social media fan, I held off. I didn’t think I needed anything else to distract me or keep me busy. But oh my goodness, Instagram is wonderful. It’s exactly what I love – combining pretty pictures with words. I just love following people who know how to take good pictures. I’m still trying to learn how to take good pictures with my phone, but it’s fun to play around with, and I love seeing how other people are sharing their images.
