We binge-watched Firefly Lane. The new Netflix series, which launches today, celebrates female friendship and we found it so endearing and fun that it inspired us to reach out to a bunch of local women-owned shops to create the Galentine’s Day giveaway of our dreams!
Before we dive into our contest and upcoming Instagram live chat, a little about Firefly Lane…
When unlikely duo Tully (Katherine Heigl) and Kate (Sarah Chalke) meet at age fourteen, they couldn’t be more different. Tully is the brash and bold girl you can’t ignore, while Kate is the mousy shy girl you never notice. But when a tragedy brings them together, they are bonded for life — forever inseparable best friends.
Together they experience thirty years of ups and downs — triumphs and disappointments, heartbreak and joy, and a love triangle that strains their friendship. One goes on to fabulous wealth and fame, the other chooses marriage and motherhood — but through the decades, their bond remains — until it faces the ultimate test. The series is based on the novel of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah, who serves as co-executive producer.
Firefly Lane’s costume design, soundtrack, and overall art direction is super fun, as is drifting back and forth through the decades, but what we absolutely love about the series is that it is a beautiful reminder of the power of lifelong sisterhood.
Mushy, maybe….but when was the last time you hugged your best friend? In a year where we’ve all been forced to stay physically apart, we’re missing the closeness of our friendships so much that it hurts. Watching Tully and Kate laugh, dance, cry, and hold each other up in difficult moments was a source of comfort, and inspired us to make a few phone calls to our beloved age-old best friends.
