In writing this post, I have officially stuck with my “Monthly Loves” posts for one whole year! Yay!
L I S T E N I N G T O :
× The songs on this post
× Simply Christmas – Leslie Odom, Jr.
× Ingrid Michaelson’s Songs for the Season
× Home for Christmas – Amy Grant
R E A D I N G :
× Hooked: New Science on How Casual Sex is Affecting our Children by Joe McIlhany and Freda McKissic Bush // This book is SO good. I highly recommend reading it. There’s no religious bias to it, it’s nothing but purely science based facts. There’s a whole lot of intellectual nerdiness to it but overall it is very enjoyable, and I think there can be great benefit to reading it.
× Homebody by Joanna Gaines // AKA my current favourite coffee table book. Every aspect of it is GORGEOUS.
W A T C H I N G :
× A whole lot of cheesy Holiday movies:
- A Christmas Prince
- A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding
- The Princess Switch
- Christmas Inheritance
- Christmas Wedding Planner
- The Holiday Calendar
… I don’t know what it is that makes these movies so wonderful, but I love them. They are my guilty pleasure. So clean, so cheesy, so beautiful.
× The Final Table
× Julie & Julia, which I am adding to my list of all time favourite movies. So funny and so cute.
L O V I N G :
× Brown paper packages tied up with string …. (I sure hope you sang that as you read it)
× Tree Scents Holiday Room Spray from Saje – makes it smell like you have a real Christmas tree in your living room
× Sand & Fog Candles – you can find these at HomeSense. They’re made with soy wax & essential oils, so you can feel good about burning them. I have Chai and White Pine – they smell absolutely incredible.
Happy New Year! My prayer for each of you is that this first month of 2019 brings all kinds of wonderful things your way.
