Wishing I Could Read You For The First Time
I can honestly say I have never reread a book before. It hasn’t been something I have thought about much as there seems to always be a great new book that I want to read. But, if I were to reread a book, I think that I would reread Girl on the Train, Gone Girl and Gone with the Wind. These three books have been by far my favorite reads and I wouldn’t mind sitting down to read them again, to enjoy them as if it were the first time I was reading them. That would be time well spent.
What book or books would you want to reread as if it were the first time?
Well, Christmas time is upon us whether we are ready for it or not. It seems to have snuck up on me a bit this year. Are you ready for the Holiday season?
Music has always been a part of my life, no matter the time of year, but especially during Christmas. As a kid I remember my Mom going to the piano, pulling out the sheet music from the piano bench and sitting down to play. At times I could be found next to her singing along. I specifically remember singing, “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Just thinking about it gives me all the feels.
Is there a song that brings you back to your childhood and Christmases years ago?
Below I have listed five of my favorite traditional and nontraditional Christmas songs. The traditional song list could have been a mile long. There are just so many good choices. The non-traditional list was a little bit harder to put together. The Christmas season wouldn’t be the same for me, without these songs.
