Holiday Mix is Here; Happiness and Cheer

I’m sitting in my living room with a new addition — our Christmas tree, of course. It took a little longer to find “the perfect tree” this year (the guys who are working in our neighborhood were insistent we waited for their next delivery) but here we are, listening to Christmas carols on my iPod, playing video games (James), and napping (Pepper). It seems like the perfect time to unveil one of my favorite blogging traditions: the annual mix because oh my god if I could, I would listen to cheery, jazzy wintery tracks all year long. (Isn’t it ironic that I’d rather listen to songs about snow than actually have it be snowing? Ha.)

To be honest, most years I’m so looking forward to the new albums released in October before the season is officially upon us. But this year, not so much. I’ve downloaded a few tracks here and there (I highly recommend Stevie Wonder’s “Someday at Christmas” with Andra Day) but it seems this year is destined to be one where I enjoy old favorites. Not a bad thing at all. So I hope whether you’re at work today, decorating this weekend, or online shopping and wrapping presents, you’ll give my latest a listen. (James and I gave it a listen two nights ago, and it’s a good one; I swear.)

⇒ It’s that time of year (RBR 2015)

Have a super weekend, and remember to enjoy! (Oh, and don’t forget to share your favorite tunes below. I might be missing one in my collection!)

Emma @ Miss Print - I own shockingly few holiday albums. I tend to crank up 106.7’s all-holiday music this time of year or listen to Time Warner’s holiday station on my TV. It’s interesting, now that I think about it, how little time I spend seeking out holiday music to add to my personal collection.
