My Love List

By: Andrea Brett

It’s February and I was tasked with writing this month’s blog about “LOVE.” When Joshua first asked me to do it, I’m embarrassed to admit, I did one of those small internal groans. I thought the subject seemed a little cliché – you know, February… Love… But after I pondered it a bit longer, I realized that LOVE is the best subject in the world, and it really is very nice that we have February to remind us of it. So, I’ve been gathering a list of things I LOVE. I was only going to share 10, but, oops, 10 turned into 20 (plus). I got carried away. These are in no particular order:

I LOVE Brach’s Peanut Clusters, and I LOVE that a very sweet person just sent me some in the mail.

I LOVE working with and living with the finest people I know in the world – my own family.

I LOVE the color green and how green surrounds me during springtime in Branson.

I LOVE great music and that my home is filled with it.

I LOVE it when people are just nice. 

I LOVE being “Mammy” to the two most amazing little guys in the world – Ivan and August.

I LOVE the peace and quiet and creativity of the early morning hours.

I LOVE my Dad. 

I LOVE making soup in the wintertime.

I LOVE snuggly blankets and any moment I can capture to put one to use.

I LOVE all the amazing things I can do on my iPhone, and that there are such smart people in the world who figure out how to make things like iPhones.

I LOVE beautiful fabric and what it can become.

I LOVE the smell of Auntie Anne’s pretzels and Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls.

I LOVE clean, white, warm towels out of the dryer. I LOVE that I have a dryer.

I LOVE that our home is gathering place for all the people that I LOVE.

I LOVE the happy sounds of my ukulele. I LOVE the amazing sounds of Bobby Blackburn’s guitar.

I LOVE the people in my life that are creative and positive and who work so hard to make my life easier. The Bretts Show team is full of them.

I LOVE being in a business that allows me to connect with so many amazing people – our colleagues, our audience, our fans who all have become our friends.

I LOVE being loved by my family, my friends and mostly by my Heavenly Father and my Savior. 

I know that I have to quit writing my LOVE list at some point, so I will leave it there; but what’s so amazing is that it could go on and on and on. There really is so much to LOVE in the world. And I LOVE that February reminds me of it all.  Thanks, Joshua, for asking me to do this.  (Sometimes it’s good to be cliché!)

    As one who has not only watched the Brett family perform many times, but who has also worked in the same theaters where they have performed, I can say with all confidence, combined with much experience, that their show is wholesome and unforgetable, along with being an attention getter. When you see the Brett family perform, I guarantee you will want to spread the word to your family members, friends, and colleagues alike that this is truly one show worth seeing year after year.
