It’s a Masterpiece. Downton Abbey, that is.

The one year wait for Season 2 to begin seemed to never end, and now it comes to a close this Sunday night. Sniff, sniff.

One character I particularly enjoy is Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham, played by Maggie Smith. This matriarch leads her family with a stern, but loving kind of dignity that when mixed with a tad of meddling and a quick wit, cannot help but remind me of Ma-Ma, my dad’s mother. How could I not love this character? Perhaps this is why I’ll miss it so.

Farewell for now, Downton Abbey, my Friday Fave.
