The back to school craziness is dying down slightly & my life is a little less chaotic (finally). Or, I should say that I made it die down because I was starting to go a little crazy! I must remember that not every weekend needs to be packed full of activity. Days to do whatever feels fun at the moment are just as important as checking off to dos.
There are several fun things that have caught my fancy this month.
Gilmore Girls - The first thing is exciting news for Gilmore Girls fans -- it is now available on Netflix streaming!
You can get your Stars Hollow fix any time that you like and not have to wait for a disc. I feel like Gilmore Girls is such a fall-y show, especially the first season.
It's so full of New England foliage and small town celebrations. It makes me feel like slipping on a sweater & drinking a mug of hot cider.
Incidentally, while I was looking for photos for this post, I came across some pretty awesome Gilmore Girls fan goodness on the web. Screen shots & more from the fabulous Hooked on Houses, Stars Hollow town map with key, the floor plan of Lorelai & Rory's house and at least one Stars Hollow board on Pinterest.
History Pin - I was reminded of this next one recently & spent way too long online, exploring it. History Pin is soooo cool -- people and organisations from around the world "pin" old photos for any user to see. You can search via location (ever wonder what your home town looked like 100 years ago?) or browse subjects via "Collections". Here is a fun one called Fabulous Fashion
There are also "Tours" in which old photos are superimposed on their modern locations. It is so interesting to see how things have changed & what has stayed the same. This tour of old New York stores is pretty wonderful.
Old School Cool - Finally, I love this link that popped up on my Facebook feed last week. These photos of what "cool" was in the past define classy. All I have to say is this: Paul Newman 1963.
Another favorite is this one of President & Caroline Kennedy, which has the caption: "Caroline Kennedy walks ahead while her father, the most powerful man in the world, carries her doll."
