One of my FAVORITE Christmas songs is by Michael Bublé, his version of “It’s Beginning to Look at Lot Like Christmas.” Several years ago, I worked at a Christmas event, and that song kicked us off every night. Something about the way it begins… it’s magical. SO many of my happiest memories happened during Christmas (even though part of my heart will always belong to Halloween): The white chocolate peppermint mochas from Starbucks, warm beanies, furry mittens, cold noses, and, of course, decorating, baking, and listening to Christmas music non-stop. Today, I visited my former elementary school and shared my love of writing AND my new Christmas book with happy, excited students getting ready for a writing/illustrating contest! Oh, what fun! (Hmm… that sounds like it could be a title to another Christmas book!). Speaking of new Christmas books, please click the link below to visit Amazon and get a glimpse of my newest book, “Where does Santa go after Christmas?” and then be on the lookout for a very special edition (of that same title) I wrote for my beloved hometown (coming soon!). I LOVE this time of year so much. It makes me fall in love over and over again every December.
