Merry Christmas!

I know this year’s a different sort of holiday season for most people. We got a White Christmas here in Kalamazoo — not a lot of snow, but just enough to add some sparkle to Christmas Eve and Christmas Morn.

Last night David and I drove down Christmas Tree Lane, where all the houses paint huge signs to look like Christmas cards. David cued up Christmas carols sung by Frank Sinatra and Perry Como, and we toured the lights around town as the snow gently fell. Sometimes it’s the quiet little details that make the sweetest memories.

From our house and hearts to yours, Merry Christmas!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

As read by Perry Como …

Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Accentuate the Positive

Law of Attraction, Perry Como-style!

Dork alert: I’ve been trying to find this version of the song for nearly 14 years and finally found it today. Having watched “Blast from the Past” initially while brain injured, the Perry Como reference totally escaped me until we watched it again tonight. Actually, I missed it again, but when I started singing along, David nonchalantly said, “Perry Como” and found the song on YouTube. I haven’t felt so giddy about a silly quest since I found the Golden Beet after five years of searching for what I thought were yellow pickled turnips made by my Korean college boyfriend’s mom.

Synchronously, as I was relaying the tale of finding the Golden Beet and comparing it to the satisfaction of finding “Accentuate the Positive,” I realized I happened to be eating … a golden beet. (We made roasted root veggies to eat while watching “Blast from the Past.”) My life is a Möbius strip, but it sure is fun! Enjoy. 🙂
