Lights decorate rooftops and illuminate the streets to transform an ordinary town into a magical wonderland. Children add the finishing touches to their snowmen, and roads become busy with travelers who eagerly head home for the holidays. Loved ones gather around the fireplace as warm cookies are munched, and special memories are made in the heart of December.


I cannot believe that Christmas is only eight days away, and 2020 is right around the corner. This year really flew by, and I am shocked that this month is already halfway over. That being said, I hope you enjoy this month’s playlist, and happy holidays from my family to yours!

Homecoming Memories

Memories flood back from Homecoming 2017 when the five of us made our grand entrance to the school in a minivan with string lights and loud music. We danced until we lost our shoes, laughed until our stomachs hurt, consumed more sweets than we should have, and fell in love with the NYC themed courtyard…

After the dance ended, we were escorted back to my friend’s house where we all enjoyed a bonfire and stayed up until 5:00 AM. That night was definitely one to remember, and memories continue to race through my mind as this year’s annual event comes to an official close. I watch as decorations are taken down from the high school, and I flashback to last year… Homecoming 2017

5 DAYS & Winter Break

Merrychristmas

It is now official… Winter break has arrived, and it will be 2018 the next time that those studio doors will open. To celebrate the holidays, we played “Secret Santa” and exchanged anonymous gifts with each other. I just want to take a second to thank my Secret Santa, whoever you are, for the incredible peppermint chocolates and adorable coffee mug that you have given me. 🙂 I LOVE IT! I wish all of my friends a wonderful winter break, and I am looking forward to seeing you all again when we return. It has been a great year, and I am excited to see what the rest of this season has to offer. Happy Holidays!

THERE ARE ONLY FIVE DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!

I have been on this earth for 15 years, and life has been such an outstanding journey! It is awesome to look back at all of the things that I have learned and how far I have come throughout my life… I can’t even begin to say how incredibly grateful I am to have such supportive friends, family, and followers that keep me on my feet each and everyday. You ALL make my life so wonderful and it is such a pleasure to share my journey with all of you here, on Maysa Rose. As I make a wish and blow out the candles of an extremely special birthday cake, I realize… I am going to see Phantom of the Opera!!!!!
