songs from wilmington: christmas edition.



Nothing compares to a newly-minted playlist. I repeat, nothing. I haven't been the best at posting my playlists around here lately, but that's set to change, starting right now. Because there's no time like the present. And there's no present greater than music [see what I did there?]. But, in all honesty, music - and more specifically, the intentional arranging of specific songs meant for a specific mood and/or memory - is like a warm cozy blanket I like to wrap myself up in, every time a new season comes around. So today, I am sharing with you my Christmas playlist. Rather than list out all 214 tracks [that's 12 hours worth of music, folks], I decided I'd simply share my favorites out of all the albums that appear on the list.

FOR EMMA, FOREVER AGO | bon iver
WOODLAND | the paper kites
YOUNG NORTH | the paper kites
FIGURE 8 | elliott smith
A VERY SHE & HIM CHRISTMAS | she & him
CHRISTMAS | michael buble
SNOWED IN | hanson
MOUNTAINTOPS | mates of state
CHRISTMAS IN THE AIRE | mannheim steamroller
CHRISTMAS WITH WEEZER | weezer
RED | taylor swift

What are you listening to for the season?

I actually haven't listen to any holiday songs really, I haven't been too much in the holiday spirit. Hopefully that changes soon. xx

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
