May 2018 Spotify Playlist

I couldn’t let the month of May slip away without curating my monthly Spotify Playlist! You’ll definitely notice some more summery, surf-rock vibes in this month’s compilation. I can’t believe it’s almost June and for obvious reasons, we are really excited for this summer! Let me know what you've been listening to in the comments. I've been turning to my old standards since canceling my Sirius XM subscription!

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. Top on my list was Michael Kiwanuka's special release called Out Loud! Unfortunately, the few copies the store had sold out before we were able to get there in the early evening. 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. After a January that seemed to last ages, I’m surprised by how quickly we’ve reached the end of March! Time is flying by and we have a few house projects lined up for the next couple of months that I’m looking forward to sharing in this space.

February 2018 Spotify Playlist

This was meant to be a Valentine’s Day playlist but I’m a couple of weeks late and it turns out that a lot of the songs on this playlist aren’t all that lovey-dovey after all. Here are just a few songs I’ve been listening to as of late. I’ve been a bit fixated on some of the same artists so I’d love to hear what you’ve been listening to and discover some new artists to add to my rotation! I’m looking forward to Spring and Summer, as they always seem to bring more upbeat music that echoes the warmth of the season.

The Best Places to Shop for Records + Our January Vinyl Haul

My husband and I have been collecting vinyl albums since before we got engaged. I bought him the record player we own now (that probably needs an upgrade pretty soon) and some of our first albums were from his parent’s old collection. While it’s been about six years since our first purchases, we’ve more recently been making an effort to grow our collection.

December 2017 Spotify Playlist

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!

October 2017 Spotify Playlist

I'm excited to share my October Spotify playlist with you all today! The temperatures are finally starting to cool down (at least in the mornings and evenings). While I start to switch up my wardrobe for Fall, I also switch up my music. Fall is a time for all things cozy and warm so I wanted to make a playlist that mimicked the way the season feels. This playlist is full of songs that are atmospheric and cinematic, romantic and soulful, piano-driven and a bit more downtempo than my Summer playlists. It's also heavily inspired by the film Baby Driver.

September 2017 Spotify Playlist

Summer is winding down and we've been experiencing milder temperatures as Fall makes its way to the South. Gone are the 100°+ days and fingers crossed that the wind and mid-80s temps become the new normal. I can hardly believe it's September already. In fact, I'm pretty sure I originally named this playlist "August 2017" on Spotify. Time has really slipped away from me lately.
