{holiday music} christmas waltz

Christmas is almost here and I'm here to spread a little more holiday cheer. Here are three versions of the Christmas Waltz. The first is by She and Him, the second by Nancy Wilson and the last by Frank Sinatra. I really enjoy each version but I think the Nancy Wilson version is my favorite. Which version of this song do you like the best?

{holiday music} tony bennett singing i love the winter weather

It's time to spread a little holiday cheer and what a better way than with music! I'll be posting a favorite holiday song regularly through the month of December to keep the holiday spirit going.

Tony Bennett is a definite favorite and the holidays wouldn't be the same without listening to his smooth voice crooning some of the most beloved Christmas songs around.  I hope you enjoy this video of Tony Bennett singing "I Love The Winter Weather" as much as I do.



Cheers & Happy Holidays!

{winter comforts} toe socks

Who doesn't love a comfy pair of toe socks on a cold winter's day? I loved them as a kid and still do to this day. Something about their quirkiness draws me to them.


I've got the fireplace going in my office, a nice hot cup of peppermint tea, a couple of windmill cookies and my cozy toe socks. Ready to work! Wishing you a wonderful Friday.
