It’s that time of year whether you’re a fan of it or not, it’s Christmas music season!

And usually the do-overs I focus on aren’t even about significant events in my life, but more about the small ones, like wishing I could take back words I said in an argument with someone I love, wishing I would have put…

I’m sure I’m not the only one who enjoys a cup of coffee in the morning (or any time of day really), or sitting and enjoying a cup of coffee with friends. It’s the time of year where everyone is feeling warm and cozy and I thought it would be a great time to ponder which Zelda character would you grab a cup of coffee with?
