Last time we left off, I was heading to the pumpkin patch….
Thanksgiving quickly came and went after that, and last weekend, my dear friend Anne and I went into the woods and cut down our very own Christmas trees!
So now we are here. Just a few more days before December, and I am already listening to Christmas music like crazy, decorating the house and sipping mulled wine in front of our beautifully-lit tree.
When I was a child, I loved this time of year so much. The festive food and music, decorating the tree, all the twinkling lights- the prospect of SNOW (the presents didn’t help, either). Pretty irresistible, if you ask me.
I guess I’ve always been a rather nostalgic person- because I still love Christmas that much. I’m hoping this mix of a few of my favorite winter tunes will help get you in the spirit, too.
