Hershey Collage

Well, this is an awkwardly overdue post, but here we are. This is quite a long post, so brace yourselves!

Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things.

Throughout the years, I have curated a compilation of songs which managed to capture my heart, meticulously committing every lyric to memory.

This song can warm you from the inside out – a hot bowl of chicken soup on a rainy day (or in the movie’s case, a torrential thunderstorm). My mom and I both memorized the lyrics and we would have singing marathons together – ah, those were the days! Recently I have caught myself humming the tune and was struck with a sudden idea. I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite things. Continue reading →
