Tuesday Tunes - January 17, 2017
A little folksy playlist to help you ease back into the work week. In one way or another, these songs all feel like home to me.
I’ve been working on this post since the end of the year and it’s taken me so much longer than I anticipated. It’s not that I’ve been busy— I’ve actually been quite lazy since the holidays. I’ve been enjoying lots of TV time at home and learning what it’s like to relax and not feel the need to be busy all the time. I couldn’t decide if I actually wanted to post this round-up of my favorite songs of 2017 or if the time had passed and it was just too late. I decided to go ahead since I’ve put so much thought into curating this playlist of my favorite songs from the past year and keep delaying hitting the publish button. So here’s my first post of 2018.
I’ll be the first to admit that the 70° weather has me feeling a bit more like the Grinch than one of Santa’s little helpers but putting on a bit of festive music in the evenings has been improving my mood tremendously! This year I have felt like each holiday has crept up on me without really being able to enjoy the preparation and anticipation so I’m determined to make the Christmas season different!
We're getting ready to go on vacation in a couple of weeks time so I wanted to curate a playlist that would be easy to listen to on the plane or while we have downtime in the late evenings. I've been listening to a lot of modern jazz music lately so it's interspersed throughout this playlist to break things up a bit.
