My Favorite Things

Oh no, maybe I am stealing Lindsay's idea. She is posting a Christmas song daily as a countdown to Christmas and while my plan is to share my favorite quotes from movies and books, and perhaps a memory or two, here I am posting about a favorite song.

Forgive me, Lindsay.

I just love to watch The Sound of Music and my favorite song from the movie is, of course, My Favorite Things. It is most definitely a warm and fuzzy kind of song.

This won't be quite as beautiful as what Maria sang in the movie, but just stopping to write down some of my favorite things about this season keeps life in perspective. So here are a few of my favorite things:

multicolored Christmas lights twinkling in the evergreen
little hands filled with candy decorating gingerbread
baby Jesus missing from the manger, again
mixing, rolling, cutting, baking, eating
kids playing carols on the piano, arranging the Christmas playlist
laughing with friends, celebrating with family.

Leave a comment and share some of your favorite things.
