Fun!
Nadja captured every aspect of how she felt about these songs, and easily conveyed that to me as i listened. It took me back to my own childhood, remembering how much fun we are supposed to have during Christmas, and how we recognize the celebration of this Birthday. Nadja fills my hearts delight with each note on this album! Thank you for sharing this with us Nadja! What a pleasure to have it for my holidays!
