The teasers! The Trailers! The Pop-Up Luke’s Cafe! Well it was worth it! Today, Gilmoregirls: A Year in the Life is making it’s Netflix debut and for one couldn’t be more excited!
As I mentioned in my last Gilmore Girl fan gush (see here), I was a late bloomer to The Gilmore Girls show. Maybe it was my age, maybe it was maturity level or maybe it was the amount of homework I had, but somehow I missed that wagon! Thankfully, Netflix has allowed me to catch up and enjoy every single episode leading up to this point!
One of my favourite parts about the show is the relationship between Lorelai and Rory. Growing up with two sisters, my relationship with my Mom wasn’t the same. She loved and cared for me, but her time was split between three girls with three different personalities. I wouldn’t trade my relationship with my Mom, but it definitely wasn’t Lorelai/Rory ish!
In my family, I have two sons and a daughter. Although we love being together as a family, there are times where the boys do boy things and the girls do girl things. So I feel more connected to the Lorelai/Rory relationship. It is in these moments, when my daughter and I are having high tea at the Fairmont Laurier in Ottawa or getting our nails down at spa, that I feel a stronger, friendship bond with my daughter. One that I hope matures and blossoms!
Netflix just revealed new data that proves TV shows, like Gilmore Girls, help moms and daughters build a stronger relationship:
- 61% of mothers and daughters feel sharing TV shows with each other helps them build a stronger relationship
- A recent survey revealed that almost half of women (45%) wish they spoke to their mother more often
- More than half of mother-daughter duos surveyed (54%) report post-show discussions are the best part of sharing a show together
- Almost half of moms and daughters (45%) think watching together brings them closer
So who’s Mother/Daughter relationship do you and your Mom (or Daughter) relate best to?
Rory and Lorelai’s?
Emily and LoreLai’s?
Or Mrs. Kim and Laine’s?
Regardless, if you are brave enough to share the answer, you are invited to grab your Mother (or Daughter) and join us for a Night you’ll never forget!
PS. Don’t forget the Coffee, PopTarts and Junk food!!
