Thirty Nights of Holidays!

Hey all,

We have survived a city power outtage that lasted four days this week, and the workload that piled up as a result. So I am a little buried, in addition to frenzied. But, we are getting a Christmas tree today—yay!! (My poor husband dreads this: he thinks I need serious help about my Christmas tree obsession. But they HAVE to be the right shape. :-))  Anyway, in the holiday spirit, some of you have asked for the holiday playlist that Elisa had on her iPhone for Thirty Nights.  Here it is for everyone! And for my international readers, the list includes some of Elisa’s (umm … mine) favorite holiday songs from around the world.  Hope you enjoy it, while I catch my breath and try to write some more.  THANK YOU as always for your comments, questions, and support. Lots of love, xoxo – Ani
