Star Wars

I’ll admit- I haven’t seen all the new Star Wars movies.  When I talk about Star Wars being amazing, (did I mention that Star Wars is one of my favorite movie-series?) it’s the original 3 that I’m talking about.  Who’s with me?  Hans Solo is witty and handsome, Leia is gorgeous, Darth Vador is the epitomy of “bad guy”, the drama is perfect, the droids, the death star, Chewbacca, the action, Luke discovering….who he is (no spoiler here in case you haven’t watched it!) and of course, the Millenial Falcon…

How much of my fondness is more tied to childhood memories than the actual movie?  I can’t be sure!  But either way, today I had to share this incredible tribute to Star Wars in case you haven’t seen it.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgAlQuqzl8o

May the force be with you,

Cause it makes me happy...

Little things…

It’s been a busy week here in the mountains!  The weather is turning colder but here inside it’s warm and cozy.

What are you listening to these days?  This morning we listened to a Sandra Boynton CD while the boys were getting ready for school.  “Dance It Out” started out our day on a peppy, happy tone.  I also have really enjoyed playing and singing through our Children’s Movie Songs sheet music book; songs like “Reflections” from Mulan and “Whistle a Happy Tune” have been fun for me to revisit.

I am trying to listen to music more often (maybe it’s having 3 boys that makes it so I highly value quiet and stillness!) but sometimes I have a hard time breaking out of what I usually listen to.  Do you have any ideas for me?  Pieces that you have an emotional reaction to?  Soundtracks you love?  Songs that make you want to dance?  Or sing?

Here’s a few ideas that you may not have thought of recently and that you might enjoy.  Have a great day!
