Good Evening Loves,
So today starts my Christmas Song Series in which I share a list of books based off a Christmas/Holiday song. I love developing lists around a theme and thought this would be a great way to help get into the Christmas/Holiday season. 🙂
Today’s Song: Winter Wonderland (sung by Michael Bublé)
