Family Is What You Make It @Netflix #StreamTeam

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Netflix as a part of my participation on the Netflix Stream Team. All opinions are always my own.


How would you describe YOUR family?

Wild? Crazy? Comforting? Warm? Unstable? Tight-knit? Whatever it is, it’s your unique family.

family over everything

I would say my family is a mixture of The Barones from Everybody Loves Raymond, a little bit of The Chance Family from Raising Hope and Roseanne. Weird you say? Nahhhh. They’re a little nutty, dysfunctional and crazy but they’re full of love, understanding and support.  I wouldn’t trade them for the world! No family is perfect but I’d like to say that my family is perfect for me.

We’re all a part of a family, but these days they’re starting to look less like The Cleavers and gone are the days of the white picket fence. The once traditional “nuclear” family has evolved into a kaleidoscope of possibilities—start with parents (maybe two dads, a single mom, or a stay at home dad…), add a dash of half/step/full/adopted siblings, a side of grandparents, a pinch of aunts, uncles, cousins, a splash of pets, topped off with close friends (and all the combinations thereof). Now you’ve got a modern family — each uniquely quirky — yet picture perfect in its own way.  The way it should be….

There’s a brand new show shown only on Netflix. It’s called Grace and Frankie, featuring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston. It’s a perfect example of how today’s families can shift, rearrange and blend in unexpected ways. When Grace and Frankie’s husbands leave them after 20 years of marriage—to be with each other—the women find themselves facing a change that they never expected, but they shift their perspective to get through it together with the support of their new blended family and, of course, a sense of humor.

I have yet to see this show but I saw a preview and I cannot wait to see it. After I’m finished with Bloodline, Grace and Frankie will be next on my list!
