About 8 years ago, I snuck off into another room a couple of days before Christmas and played the guitar and sang I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas for my blog readers. Unfortunately, that video was accidentally deleted a few years ago.
Since that first song, we’ve done a song for Christmas almost every year. We’ve done duets, group songs with friends and family involving preschool toys, kazoos, and popcorn-tin drums. It’s been so much fun and I know my blog followers have enjoyed seeing that different side of me (and seeing more of my family.) Every year, I receive messages asking if I’m going to do a Christmas song and I try to pick a fun song that we can perform for you. I didn’t last year because I was recovering from shoulder surgery, but I felt like this year needed a song. It’s been quite the year!
We were going to record a song over Thanksgiving, so we could have more people involved, but that trip didn’t happen. This year it’s simply me and my guitar, just how it started.
And I picked a song for Christmas that I thought was a fitting hope for this year.
“Someday soon, we all will be together… Until then, we’ll have to muddle through somehow…”
Thanks for muddling through 2020 with me here on my blog and social media channels.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas and a happy, fulfilling new year!

PS – For those who asked about a finger-knitting tutorial, I made one on Instagram Stories yesterday and shared it on my highlights. You can find it HERE.
