“A friend is a connection to life; A tie to the past, a road to the future; a key to sanity in a totally insane world.” ~unknown
I know it sounds all kinds of cliche and even slightly vomit-inducing, and even as I’m about to type it up I think I might have just vomited a bit in my mouth but the truth of the matter is my husband is my best friend. And the crazy part is that our relationship, was not initially predicated on friendship. To be perfectly honest, our friendship is very odd.
We don’t really enjoy any of the same hobbies. I like to binge watch NETFLIX till my eyes bleed and he likes to listen to sports radio. He goes running every day- the one time I went running with him I developed these very unsightly purple veins on my legs and never ran again. I like SUGAR with everything- he likes it all plain.
And truly the list goes on. But when it comes to the stuff that REALLY matters, needing someone to listen to me talk, holding my hand during the really tough parts of this life’s journey- he is the one who is there by my side- and someone I can always rely on to make a really off-colored comment or joke that makes me smile. Our friendship is based on little things- little details that when strung together are what gives me strength and a sense of security and hope in the face of any kind of odds.
So when Netflix sent me their monthly email about celebrating Thanksgiving with Family which I now refer to as Friendsgiving (a popular take on Thanksgiving when friends come together to celebrate good food and great company) I could not imagine writing about anyone but my sugar daddy and HOW EXCITED I am to get under the covers on the couch with him ( as he is my family and my BFF) and DIVE DEEP INTO the return to Stars Hollow with the premiere of Gilmore girls: A Year in the Life on November 25th.
The truth is from Friday night dinners to a daily cup of coffee (or three) at Luke’s, the Gilmores are full of unique quirks and traditions that rival even the most beloved Netflix families. Whether you and your loved ones embody the spirit of the fast-talking Gilmores or is more like the group-hugging Fullers or slightly strange Byers, when it comes to dynamics and traditions, how does your family compare? So if you too are ready to celebrate the friends in your life- keep reading for some fantastic Netflix pics that celebrate the best parts of friendship and a yummy snack!

1. If you’re the family that appreciates a cozy night in like the Gilmores…
If you’re the family that is known for being just a little eclectic like the Byers….
If you’re the family that respects a good dance party like the Kiplings…
And once you’ve settled in with your Netflix -Friendsgiving series enjoy this snack – cucumber roll-ups stuffed with veggie cream cheese. Anything can go into cucumber rolls, but for this version we’re sticking to sun-dried tomatoes , a celery stalk and baby carrots.
