I have to admit, I have been literally escaping NYC via reading, movies, and shows this 2020 year. With travel very limited and home being the safest place to be, Netflix has helped me travel to far away places and stories. Whether you’re a movie buff or you love binging a great show, Netflix can’t be beat. I love that they have movies and shows for my whole family. Some nights we have family movie nights and some nights Jason and I watch alone. With the weather getting chilly and the holidays around the corner it’s the perfect time to grab some popcorn and get cozy on the couch with your loved ones.
