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!

Solar Eclipse 2017

We had an eclipse watching party at work that started with lunch (chicken salad sandwiches, salad, pasta salad, potato salad, and broccoli salad... can you tell we like "salads" in the South?!) and ended with everyone outside on the top balcony watching as the sky darkened, street lights turned on, temperatures dropped, and the moon quickly covered the sun. We live in a town where we were able to see the eclipse at about 99.5% so not while it was disappointing we weren't quite in the path of totality, it was still a really neat experience.

I was anxious to login to our account and see how everything turned out. Like I mentioned in last week's weekend link roundup, we tried to follow some tips from the Plant Based Traveler and a video tutorial from the 1980s demonstrating the Nikon FG manual that I found online.

Kanuga

It's hard to describe how Kanuga makes me feel. It's a home away from home year after year. It's the only place I've ever been where I don't feel 100% tied down to my phone (i.e. no answering work emails after hours) and what's going on at home. It is also the only place where I don't have to worry about locking the doors. If you're looking for a realxing, all-inclusive spot to book a trip or conference, check it out! Despite Alex's misguided feelings on the "stale bread", I keep coming back for the toast.
