Favorite Things

www.trifectawritingchallenge.com








For this weekend's Trifextra Challenge:

In 1959, Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote the music for the Broadway production, The Sound of Music.  One of the most famous songs from the musical is "My Favorite Things."  Since its inception, the song has been covered by countless artists, and we're asking you to follow suit.  Give us a few of your favorite things, in whichever form you want, in 33 words exactly.  (Link above will bring you to the song's lyrics, if you're not familiar with the tune.)


Favorite Things

Good friends in company and nice glasses of red,
The smell of brewed coffee and freshly baked bread.
Crisp notes of music from violin strings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

  4. These are some of my favorites as well. In fact, you've pretty much described the best parts of this holiday weekend. (I'm leaving out the temper tantrums, mine *and* the kids'.)

  11. It may sound silly but each entry I've read, I've tried singing along with and yours is the only one so far that actually has some sort of Sound of Music melody to it! Great job!

    1. Thank you, Megan! To be fair, there is no requirement to keep to the beats and format of the song, so I really just took the easy way out. But it was fun, and I appreciate your kind words!
