Music and Happiness Box 2019’s Scrapbook | The Final Two Months

I want to share with you the final two months of my musical layouts for Happiness Box 2019’s scrapbook. I enjoyed putting these pages together.



















I have to still finish 31 December 2019, but here’s what the tune is for New Year’s Eve:


I can’t wait to keep the music going for Happiness Box 2020! Later this week I want to complete Jar 2016 and I think I might add some music there too. Lyrics make scrapbook layouts pop!

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I truly am verklempt after scrolling down and gazing at your scrapbook pages covering events you attended in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving and during the Christmas and New Year holidays last year. It makes me happy to see all the smiling faces in those pictures, especially yours, but sad to know that in 2020 you needed to alter your lifestyle, dramatically scale back your traveling and severely limit the number of concerts and cultural events you attended in person. 2020 bears little resemblance to 2019. You are doing a great job of adjusting, my friend. It was nice to see your true blue friend Marsha in your scrapbook pics. She is a friend to treasure! I also thoroughly enjoyed the eclectic mix of music you posted to take us through those last two months of 2019. Dean Martin and Burl Ives were releasing hit records when I was a boy and during my teen years. It’s been a while since I experienced the joy of a Pentatonix performance, so thanks for posting their video. “Auld Lang Syne” always makes me misty no matter who sings it.

    “God gave us mouths for kindness.” Let us all remember that going forward and live up to it every day no matter what the rest of 2020 may bring.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!


  2. Hi dear friend,

    So very true! I’m planning a trip to Asbury Park, but even that won’t be the same. It’ll only be the beach, no events, nothing else. I’m hoping to see Jared and that’s the only upside of everything. Pride has been cancelled, but J. Proud, a Jewish organization, is having a Zoom Pride Shabbat on Friday. Thank G-d for Zoom! While it’s not the same as in person, it is still nice to see people and interact.

    While I’m not getting out and about, I’m growing on Zoom. I participated in the improv group last night on Zoom and that brought out a lot of laughter. One group is planning a MST 3000 like event on Netflix at some point, so I think that could be fun too.

    I have a lot of random photos from COVID and from staying at my aunt’s. I didn’t get any of us together since we were staying distant, but I took some of her while she wasn’t looking, and took a lot of selfies and some of her house. I’ll scrap them for memories too, as well as write down some family stories she told me.

    2020: the year of randomness thanks to COVID-19, BLM, and derechos. Roarin’ 20s 2.0 indeed!

    Have a great day!
