Record Store Day 2018

Saturday was Record Store Day so we headed out to Grantski's after a very full morning to try to score some of the records we saw promoted through the store's Facebook event.

We did come home with a couple of gems, though!

March 2018 Spotify Playlist

Hope you don’t mind a bit of a ramble / diary-style life update to go along with my March playlist. It’s the first day of Spring and the 2nd anniversary of the day we closed on our very first home together.

I’m looking forward to Spring and Summer, as they always seem to bring more upbeat music that echoes the warmth of the season.

While it’s been about six years since our first purchases, we’ve more recently been making an effort to grow our collection.
