Mama Mia

One of my favorite gifts this Christmas was the Mama Mia DVD.  I saw this movie for the first time on the airplane - and everyone sitting near me must have thought I was crazy, because I know I had a smile on my face the entire time the film was on.  It took me back to those slumber parties I had when I was young where we watched Grease over and over again so we could sing and dance along.

I couldn't wait to get a copy of the movie so I could see it on a better screen- and I found myself watching it multiple times over the holidays, and every time I watched I found myself laughing and singing along.

I first saw Mama Mia on stage with my friend Jen on one of our Seattle theater nights (I miss those so much!)  I loved it then and love it now.  If you ever need a pick me up - this is just the thing.  

On about the 5th viewing I left the DVD playing while the credits were running and discovered a beautiful song, "Thank You for the Music" that I can't stop singing.

Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

Pin It

I've watched it twice at home and twice with you. Almost as many as you have!

After seeing the movie in the theatre, I came out wanting to sing and dance. It's so uplifting!
