Christmas at Grey Sage by Phyllis Clark Nichols I love a good romance novel and with it taking place in the winter this was a great one to pick up and read by the fire. I will say that it was hard to follow at first keeping up with the multiple characters in the book but as I got further into the book it was easier to follow. There were some sad parts of the book but I love how they all got to spend time with the family together under one roof as it should be for Christmas. Nestled…

The music in Pixar Coco plays a huge part in the film. It’s not all the same as some of the music is from a mariachi band and others from different genres of musicians. And it’s not just a guitar sound you hear. There are many instruments played in the background such as an accordion, trumpet, drum, seashells, tuba and more. The people that put their heart and soul into making the music for Coco are Michael Giacchino (Composer), Germaine Franco (Songwriter/Arranger), Camilo Lara (Consultant), Adrian Molina (Writer and Co-Director) & Federico Ramos (Guitarist). There are 3 types of music…

One of my favorite candies this time of year is the Andes mint chocolate. The rich taste with a hint of mint hits the spot. Now add the Andes mint chocolates into a toffee bar with some peppermint and you got Andes Toffee Bars. If you thought Andes mint chocolates were addictive, I’m giving you fair warning that these are as well. If you like more of a chocolate taste rather than the traditional sweet and salty toffee bars made with nuts than this recipe is a great one to make. I like to bring some to the holiday party…

It’s the holiday season and I’ve starting decorating a bit earlier this year. I love the Christmas season and the smell of fresh pine. My go to place for the freshest wreaths is Christmas Forest. They started back in 1976 bringing the scents of the holidays to life and still carry that on to this day with every wreath they create. These wreaths are not just any other kind of wreath, they are handcrafted and a one of a kind creation just for you. I chose the 20″ Rustic Christmas Wreath and hung it on my door. It looks so pretty…

Disney•Pixar’s COCO is finally here and now playing in theaters everywhere! While I was in San Francisco back in August I only got to see 35 minutes of it but last night I got to see the entire film and it was more than amazing. And playing before CoCo you’ll be able to see OLAF’S FROZEN ADVENTURE. Both of these films are the perfect way to kick off the holiday season with the family! Seeing Pixar Coco last night really opened my eyes about family being more important than anything else. Plus, I got a better understanding of the Mexican…
