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
