What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Friday Night Lights. The quintessential fall show. If you’ve never seen FNL, fall is the perfect time to watch it. A small town and fall and the football season…it’s perfection, even if you don’t like football. Trust me. I’ve seen every episode, and I’m watching it again, because fall.
PS: Part of me wants to move to Texas next year so I can get a tattoo that says texas forever. Reserve your judgement.
Gilmore Girls. I’m not sure why this one always makes me think of fall (the intro, maybe?) since it covers all the seasons, but it’s a small town that makes a big deal about every season. Nothing makes me excited about fall quite like watching the town of Stars Hollow throw their annual fall festival. It’s just adorable.
Parenthood. Again, not exactly sure why I think of this when I think of fall shows. I’m pretty sure that I just equate cozy, feel-good shows with my favorite season. If you’ve never seen Parenthood (do not be misled by the name, it’s for everyone), then get yourself a cup of pumpkin coffee and watch the pilot. That’s all you’ll need to be hooked.
Pretty Little Liars. Because every October needs just a little bit of spooky. Fair warning: I absolutely HATED the way this show ended (even though there’s another season in the works, but still. Hated it!) But it’s still worth watching for everything up until that point.
Remember the Titans. If Friday Night Lights is the quintessential fall show, this is the quintessential fall movie. It’s one of my favorites!
Elizabethtown. Full disclosure, this one has nothing to do with fall. BUT it does have the perfect fall soundtrack…seriously so good. And it’s my favorite movie ever. And it’s on Netflix. You’re welcome.
You’ve Got Mail. Fall either makes me think of cozy small towns or New York City, nothing in between. This one is the latter, and I love it.
Rudy. So basically any movie about football goes on the fall list.
The Great Gatsby. “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” Is there anything better than combining fall + the ’20s? No. No there is not.
