Music Fridays: Christmastime

Last week I ordered my Christmas present for myself. I’ve been setting a little money aside every paycheck for it for a while now and reaching my goal before Christmas worked out perfectly. It’s a Bluetooth turntable so I can play the records in my small record collection. Some of the records in my collection…

Music Fridays: Somebody that I used to know

I’m almost afraid to share my pick for this week’s music post. I was going to go a different route and share something new, but then this song sort of worked its way out of my subconscious. I say that I’m almost afraid to share it because I don’t want you to think that I’m…

Music Fridays: The Joker and the Queen

There are so many songs I could have picked from this new album: Visiting Hours, Overpass Graffiti, Shivers. Each hit me differently but just as strong. I chose this one because I love its soothing and gentle melody and I think it does an excellent job of describing where I am in my relationship. I’m…

Music Fridays: Pink Martini

It’s Friday! I was torn as to what song to share with you today. I listened to Ed Sheeran’s new album this morning and I was tempted to share that, maybe by way of the new Tiny Desk episode featuring that album, because so many of the songs touched me in one way or another,…

Music Fridays: Simple Things

It’s been another one of those weeks for me. I’ve been thinking a little too much, maybe even feeling a little too much, if that’s possible. Every time I look at the calendar I remember something sad, like the fact that my dad passed away last October. This time last year he was still alive,…

Music Fridays: Indigo

I’m wrapping up Hispanic Heritage month-inspired music with this new song from Camilo and Evaluna Montaner. When I heard it this morning on my new music mix from Apple Music it got my attention. I like the vibe it gives me: carefree, happy, and in love. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Music Fridays: Life in the Tropics

Happy Friday! It’s been a gray, rainy week in my little corner of the world. Though the temperatures are still warm, it feels like fall is just around the corner. Although I don’t mind fall weather, I’m a summer person. I love the warm temperatures. For today’s selection, I’m taking you to the tropics. Specifically,…

Music Fridays: Cinco Centavitos

It’s the first day of a new month and I’m feeling a little melancholy. It’s probably because so much happened last October. I stumbled upon some old messages and letters yesterday that made me a little blue. I’m probably also anticipating a little too much how I will feel when the anniversary of my dad’s…

Music Friday: Yo Soy Latino

It’s Hispanic Heritage Month! Here’s a new song I just discovered this week featuring some fantastic dancing and Latin rhythms. Have a great weekend!
