Happy December, everyone 😊
Due to time restraints, daily blogging of Blogmas wasn’t on my radar this year so I wanted to do something a little different, and with the end of year insight, I thought it would be fun to start sharing my favourites of 2019.
Today, it’s going to be my TV favourites. I’ve decided to keep the details on these shows brief as I am well aware of spoiler moments and I don’t want to be the one to ruin anyone’s hopeful binge watching over Christmas. Just take it as a list post, everyone loves a good list post. 😊
In no particular order, they are…
Chasing Happiness Docu-film (Amazon Prime)
Chasing Happiness is a story of brotherhood. From humble roots as pastor’s sons in New Jersey, through their meteoric rise to fame, the Jonas Brothers’ bond was unshakeable-until a surprising and painful breakup led Joe, Kevin and Nick down very different paths. With deeply personal interviews, previously unreleased footage and exclusive music, this is the Jonas Brothers as never seen before.
