Beginnings

"In creating, the only hard thing's to begin; a grass blade's no easier to make than an oak."
 -James Russell Lowell

This quote is the exact reason it's taken me months to actually post something on my blog.  I've been at a standstill on what to do for my first post and haven't gotten anywhere.  I guess I figured my first post needed to be ground-breaking (or something close to it). That hasn't quite happened, so I'm just going to start.  Here is my first official post.  It's nothing fancy or exciting, but a start (I already feel better).

I love all things holiday- the sights, the smells, the sounds, the feelings.  Long ago in my high school days I would get together with my three best friends and make mixed tapes.  When iTunes came along, my mixed taped days became so much easier.  I have a mix for every holiday, and I have to say my Thanksgiving mix might just be my favorite.  Well, Christmas may have a slight edge over Thanksgiving, but my Christmas music doesn't really fit into the mix category.  It fits more in the category of volumes upon volumes.  So, here are the songs on my Thanksgiving mix.  I love how these songs immediately bring the feelings of Thanksgiving into my surroundings.  Isn't music powerful?  I hope you find one or two you like, and let me know if you have any other favorites I should add to my list. 

Thanksgiving Mix

  1. We Gather Together by Paul Mccandless, Philip Aaberg & Michael Manring
  2. Simple Gifts by Barry Phillips And William Coulter
  3. (There's No Place Like) Home For The Holidays by The Carpenters
  4. Thanksgiving by Jim Brickman
  5. Over the River and Through the Woods by Julia Lane or Michael Silverman

  10. Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep) by Bing Crosby
P.S. All of my songs came from iTunes.  I wish I knew how to link you directly to each song or how to make a cool playlist you could click on, but I'm not quite sure how to do that (something to add to my "Learn How To Do" list).  Also, if you want to learn a little bit more about me, click here.
