Everyone has a Sound of Music story! The iconic film about a wanna-be-nun, a widower, and his big brood has been loved for generations. Oprah aired the cast's 45-year reunion yesterday and there was singing! Though I've seen the movie a few dozen times with friends, family, kids I babysat, and my own children, I'll never forget the first time I watched Fräulein Maria belt out her song on the mountain top. We were at my grandparents' house and after Thanksgiving dinner my siblings and I sat in silence as Liesl and Rolfe danced in the garden and Gretl bid her father's party guests goodnight. What is your Sound of Music memory?
