Welcome Back Gilmore

Let's take a trip back to Stars Hollow and visit some of our favorite towns folk.

Welcome Back Gilmore

If you haven't seen the new Gilmore Girls and wish to not be spoiled on the show, this article may not be for you. You've been warned...

This past week the highly anticipated Gilmore Girls revival hit Netflix. Many fans of the mother/daughter comedy were excited (I know I was!). I know some may have had their doubts about what this new 'ending' would hold, and if it would meet what we had imagined happened with our favorite characters after the shows original ending.

After the original ending, most fans hoped for the best with how Luke and Lorelai's relationship ended up, where Rory went with her career, and who she ended up with in the end. My vote was always for Logan. When it was announced that there would be a four part revival, Gilmore hearts around the world grew three sizes that day. We would FINALLY get the answers we were looking for. We'd also get to hear those famous four words that Amy Sherman-Palladino said the show was suppose to end with.

In the first of the four episodes we learn that Luke and Lorelai are in fact STILL TOGETHER! Yes, the coffee junkie and the diner owner are still going strong, and boy oh boy did that play with some many of the feels. It was almost like a dream come true. Almost, only, because they still weren't married.

We also learn what Rory has been up to since her run on the Obama campaign came to close. Rory is a jet setter, never staying in one area too long. She's home visiting and has a job meeting and the next moment, she's running off to London for another job meeting and to see Logan. But we learn that none of those jobs actually come through and she's moving back home to Stars Hollow. While there, she ends up taking a job as editor for the towns paper.

We have to say goodbye to Richard Gilmore, and watching Emily, Lorelai, and Rory all hurting over his loss breaks our hearts too. This comes after the passing of Edward Herrmann in 2014. When Lorelai calls Emily while she's out on her hike, telling her about one of her favorite moments with her father, you break down with her.

During the course of the four episodes, we get to see many of our favorite towns folk. Taylor, Kirk, Ms. Patty. They all come back at some point during the four episodes and it's great to see how they've changed over the years, and that they all loved the show enough to come back for however long their role called for. We also get to see Paris, Logan, Dean, Jess. With hints back to the original show. We also got to have one last hurrah with the Life and Death Brigade. And we cried as we had to say goodbye to each of these amazing characters for what feels like the very last time and they were all given a great bow out.

During the last of the four episodes, every Luke and Lorelai fans' heart burst when they agree to finally marry. It was a long time coming and it was finally here. We would finally get to see them take that step. And the wedding that Kirk set up for them...it was breath taking and perfect, and just everything someone could hope for for their favorite couple.

This would have been the perfect ending to the show but ASP always said she knew what the last four words of the show were supposed to be. And for some of the really die-hard fans, knowing what those four words are is really really really important.

The scene moves to Rory and Lorelai sitting in the town center, drinking champagne in honor of Lorelai getting married. They talk and joke about how Rory should get married too and Rory tells Lorelai that she's pregnant.

Rory: “Mom?”

Lorelai: “Yeah?”

Rory: “I’m pregnant.”

This is how they ended the show. After all the closure we had been given during the past three episodes, this...this is what we get as a parting gift. Some people loved it, while others hated it. Me, personally, I'm on the fence. While I see it as coming full circle, I also see it as a huge cliffhanger and am now hopeful for a spin on with Rory and her baby. Plus, I really need to know if I'm right about Logan being the daddy and how Rory handles that with him now being married.

Love it or hate it, this is what we are left with. We were able to get answers to many questions, see some of our most hoped for moments come to pass and now we just have to wait and see if we get some more Gilmore Girls in our lives. We can only hope that more is to come.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
