The Bartlett/Fleming Family (Heartland)
For nine seasons now, Heartland has been the happy show I’m sure many of us have been turning to when we’ve needed to take a step back from the intense dramas on TV. And for nine seasons it’s proven to be one of the most family driven series in existence continuously giving us raw, beautiful moments that have shown what families are meant to be like. And not to mention, Heartland has even done a beautiful job revealing the gorgeous intimacy between a horse and his/her rider. Since Heartland is primarily a family show, it tackles a great deal of different relationships with the Bartlett/Fleming/Borden clan, but a few have personally tugged on my heartstrings the most.

Ty Borden and Amy Fleming (Heartland)
Heartland is my happy show, and to this very day I’m thankful my dear friend Allison forced me to binge watch all five seasons because it’s made my Sunday nights wonderful. Even when things get bad, as cheesy as it sounds, I can always count on the series to find a way to make my heart happy. Ty Borden and Amy Fleming are perhaps the sweetest version of the bad boy meets a good girl storyline. What I’ve always appreciated about the two is that they’ve painted a healthy representation of a relationship that changes and grows with age. It started off as a friendship, and it’s now one of the most beautiful partnerships on television. Their journey’s been anything but easy, sometimes, it’s been frustrating, but at the end of the day, Ty and Amy continuously play a role in making the other better.
