Dance with Joy

Happy November! As we approach this stressful election week and start of the holiday season, I offer this Choose Joy playlist of music on Spotify that I hope uplifts and inspires you to choose joy no matter what comes as we close out this history making year. My teen daughter and I had a wonderful time putting this list together for you. We hope you sing along and dance with joy! And share it with someone you love.

We love music so much that it was hard to choose what to include. Comment below if you have suggestions for songs to add to the list.
