Downton new obsession!

     I am positively in love with the PBS series Downton Abbey, and I'm very late to the huge following this show has.  I have been dying to see the past seasons before jumping into Season 3, and you can get them on Netflix and Apple TV which is amazing by the way!  So whenever Big D is out of town, I snuggle up with the pups, a cozy blanket and jump back into the early 1900's one hour at a time.  I have  been up until two in the morning on many nights because I don't want to shut it off!

It's a story about the upstairs/downstairs goings on of the aristocratic Crawley family and their help that live downstairs...and I love every delish moment of it!  That's Carson the butler, and he's positively snooty as can be and so fun to watch!

Maggie Smith is so great as the gossipy grand ma ma, Violet Crawley, the Dowager Countess of Grantham...whatever that means!

She is such a hoot saying the most cheeky things like...

"Of Course it would happen to a foreigner, no Englishman would dream of dying in someone else's house"


"We can't have him assassinated...I suppose..."


"What's a weekend?"

There is the patriarch of the family Hugh Bonneville, the Earl of Grantham, and Elizabeth McGovern, the Countess of Grantham who is American in the story...

The sisters Ladies Mary, Edith, and Sybil Crawley...

The heir to the Crawley fortune and beloved Downton Abbey, Matthew Crawley played by Dan Stevens...

It makes you want to jump back in time and experience it all for yourself!

Exactly right!
