Music Playlist

During a training we watch Debbie Miller's video Happy Reading she stressed the importance of music in her day.  I decided I need to update my play lists!

Here is my new play list....I just finished listening to it at home and I had a smile on my face while swaying from side to side :)

I used Amazon MP3 and some songs were free.  The songs that were free are italicized
