How we’ve managed to watch so many un-holiday themed movies this month I don’t know. I didn’t particularly love any of them, but that’s okay. We’ve watched a few more Schitt’s Creek episodes and watched the first handful of season one of The Arrow (so completely hokey, but kinda what I was looking for) and we watched the first episode of Bridgerton. Way more TV time than normal. We’re still pretty much isolating and I really look forward to going to a movie theater again next year!
