It's here! Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is finally on Netflix! Woohoo! Fred & I finished watching the series a few months ago. It was his first time, but I remember watching Gilmore Girls as a teenager. Rory was definitely an inspiration in my pursuing journalism. It'll be fun to catch up with the characters & see what they've been up to after all these years.

The show is set nearly a death decade after the finale of the original series, following Lorelai, Rory, & Emily through four seasons of change. There are four episodes at 90 minutes each, which is equivalent to about eight regular episodes. Get in the Gilmore Girls spirit with these binge-watching essentials!

1. Get yourself some Gilmore Girls merchandise to really get yourself in the mood. You can find some great Gilmore Girls merch on Amazon; they have cool socks, Luke's Diner mugs, & more. Shop here.

Have you read Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between) by Lauren Graham? She talks a lot about Gilmore Girls & gives hilarious insight into her character & own life.

2. Stock up on food. Lots & lots of food. Mix & match. The funkier the better.
3. Get cozy. You're going to be watching Netflix for a while.

Alright, everyone! Let's get to it. Time to binge-watch Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix. That's what I'll be doing this weekend anyway!

Will you be watching the show? :]
