Five on Friday - June 21, 2024

Oh boy - this Friday rolled around really quick!  Thanks for popping in to see my five for today.  Let's get started ~

1.  I  Am Celine Dion
Celine Dion's story took quite a turn a few years ago when she had to stop touring because of a rare illness.  The five-time Grammy winner is giving us a look inside her battle with stiff person syndrome (SPS) in her new film titled I Am Celine Dion.  It opens today on Prime Video.  The soundtrack will also be available starting today.  Here's the summary of the show ~
Directed by Academy Award nominee Irene Taylor, I AM: CELINE DION gives us a raw and honest behind-the-scenes look at the iconic superstar's struggle with a life-altering illness. Serving as a love letter to her fans, this inspirational documentary highlights the music that has guided her life while also showcasing the resilience of the human spirit.

I absolutely LOVE these face scrubbers!  I've used them for years and recently needed to update mine.  They are made of soft silicone with a nice little suction on the back for easy holding.  It's like using an exfoliator and massager all in one.  I keep one in my travel bag too. They come in a pack of four, so you'll have a few to share with friends!  

3.  Ed Sheeran - X
It's been 10 years since Ed Sheeran released X.  Today is the release of the 10th Anniversary Edition!  It includes the original 12-track album plus 9 bonus tracks that have never been released on vinyl before.  Ed Sheeran is one of my favorites and I'm excited to listen to this album over and over again.  

4.  Strawberry Moon
Look up into the sky tonight to catch the Strawberry Moon!  What's a strawberry moon you ask.  It links back to the ripening of wild strawberries in June.  This year the strawberry moon coincides with the summer soltice, giving us a super bright view.  Peak illumination is today at 9:08 pm EDT, but you can see the full moon through Sunday morning.  Our eyes will definitely be on the sky tonight!

5.  This could be me...

Have a great weekend!  We are headed to my friend's house in Monticello to go to a rodeo!  I'm so excited to spend some time with friends.  It's going to be an awesome few days.  See you back next week!


  1. Ohh! I will have to give that show about Celine Dion a watch. I have a friend, another blogger who has stiff person syndrome and it is so rare and an awful illness.
    I will have to tell my eldest about the the new anniversary Ed Sheeran album. She loves him and his music.

  2. I'll have to watch that Celine Dion movie; it sounds so interesting.
