What a great way to get through the post holiday doldrums and start the year off right. The PBS Miniseries Downton Abbey is back! Season 2 started last night and it is so good I don’t know how I’m going to make it another week until the next episode.

The costumes are amazing.

Like Anna, I too fancy Mr. Bates.

I think most of all, I love Maggie Smith as Dowager Countess of Grantham. She is quite the stubborn matriarch. I’m not the only fan…check out the Countesses Facebook page!
