At the beginning of every year, I pick a word to represent my goals for the coming months and give me focus. Last year, that word was growth. And between moving to our big custom-built home and adding a new baby to our family, I think I accomplished it!
The year was jam-packed with all kinds of events, which meant I relished every bit of relaxing time that I got even more. And Netflix Canada was there for me all year with shows to help me unwind and forget the hustle and bustle of the day.
There was a lot to love about Netflix in 2017, from the adult-friendly kid’s series A Series of Unfortunate Events to the much-anticipated Stranger Things 2. Of course, I couldn’t resist binge-watching the entire newest season of my favourite Netflix show, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
But Netflix provided just as much entertainment to my boys over the year, and that meant extra time for myself while they were happily occupied. Benjamin especially loved his birthday greeting from the LEGO Ninjago crew when he turned eight in October. And Zackary enjoyed delving into more adult content as he discovered the hilarious and heartwarming Atypical.
And so, 2017 ended with plenty of fun, change and binge-watching sessions. Now I’m already looking ahead to some of the great times to be had in the new year! In between landscaping, finishing the basement of our new house and celebrating our baby’s first birthday, I’ll be catching the new season of Grace & Frankie and indulging in some me-time while the boys catch up on the next season of A Series of Unfortunate Events.
No matter what filled your year in 2017, chances are good that one or two of Netflix’s original hit shows helped you laugh, cry, learn or relax during the year. And with even more exclusive shows on the way and tons of fan favourites debuting new seasons, 2018 is going to be a year full of great entertainment as well.
