Is it really almost Christmas? I can’t believe that 2014 is right around the corner, except for the fact that I seem to say this every year, so I’m not sure why I thought this year might be any different!
I have been doing my best to ring in the holiday cheer by decorating, listening to my Christmas albums (because Christmas music always sounds better on vinyl), making yummy homemade comfort food and watching Christmas movies on TV. (Although, I should make a confession that as of this current moment, I have never seen Love Actually. Every time that I seem to divulge this fact people look at me like I have ten heads. I promise that I will watch it before Christmas!)
What are some of your favorite Christmas songs? I love…
Frank Sinatra – I’ll Be Home for Christmas
Wham! – Last Christmas (I am an 80’s child after all…)
Elvis – Blue Christmas
Amy Grant (just about everything, but if I had to choose…) – Rockin Around the Christmas Tree AND Breath of Heaven
Katy Perry – White Christmas
Willie Nelson & Norah Jones – Baby, It’s Cold Outside
…and that’s just the name a few! If you’re in need of some Christmas tunes, check out my Spotify playlist by clicking here!
I’ll leave you with a photo of this yummy cocktail that I had this past weekend. The bar called it a “Whiskey Smash” and it included the following: Maker’s Mark whiskey, muddled blackberries (plus some for garnish), and simple syrup. Cheers!
