Welcome to a new episode of The Couch. Today I’m here with my best friend and best friend of the show, Anna Rendell! Anna is a writer and speaker who shares encouragement and celebration of the ordinary glory found in our everyday. She’s a wife and a mom to four littles, and she’s the digital content manager for (in)courage. And, of course, she’s my partner in all things Hooked on Holiday Movies.

In this episode, Anna and I are here to help you get ready to celebrate Christmas in July by talking about our favorite holiday movies in a few specific categories. So if you’ve ever wondered, what the best holiday movies about music, food, royal life, weddings, or road trips are, we are here for you!

And because this is The Couch, where rabbit trails and side notes are always welcome, we also get into new TV shows that actually come out one episode at a time, donut bakeries, and the comfiest t-shirts at Target. I’m glad you’re here, friends. Get comfy and enjoy this episode!
