Fall songs.

Fall is for wrapping our hands around warm mugs and arms and kicking up leaves on sidewalks. We traverse a little slower, paying more attention to nature as it tugs our sleeve – a willing transition from saturdays filled with buoyant squeals and poolside views to the solace of rustling breezes and brilliant color found on a long mid-day stroll.  We begin to breathe a little deeper, hum a little slower, bundle a little heavier. Fires are lit for the first time since February, blankets make nests on our back porches & we roll our sleeves down. Hints of cedar, cinnamon & nutmeg fill our homes. We stray from our morning americanos and splurge on the barista’s recommended seasonal latte. Our hearts begin the almost involuntary annual process of letting go of all of summer’s branches along with the leaves, stirring up new and grand year-end ambitions. We sense a new thing beginning – so we feel and we listen, we make cocoons of our covers and we twirl in our kitchens. There’s a soundtrack for that.

I hope you enjoy these songs as I accumulate them through the season – they are my autumn anthem. Hugs.

It's hot. Summer playlists: Cannonball & Float

Summer’s not technically until June 21, but following the rules can be so dumb. It’s June, it’s hard to walk outside most days without sweating and a friend told me they spotted a firefly in my yard last night so I’d say the season’s officially upon us. 

When I first started putting together a Summer playlist, it got weird quick. It turns out banjo-picking country songs and Daft Punk don’t exactly make the best listening cocktail—fair enough. So I split the list to make one full of new and dancy stuff and the other nostalgic and slow (because c’mon every Summer needs the latter), or as I like to call ‘em: Cannonball and Float

I’ll add to these as the season goes on. In the meantime, have fun and sing loud. So loud. RECOMMENDED USAGE: on night drives with the windows down, anything on a saturday, by a body of water, or on a boat in which you’ve so kindly invited me to join you on (thx in advance).

happy summer amigos.
