Top Ten of 2021

Are you glad it’s over? Did it go by in a flash for you too? While 2020 felt like it would never end, 2021 was over in an instant. At least that’s how it feels as I look back on this first day of 2022. I’m sure there were moments when I felt like it…

Music Fridays: Blessed

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. An even crazier couple of years, am I right? This morning I woke up with vague memories of last night’s dream, the first one with an appearance by my ex in a long time. I don’t remember much about the dream, but I’m going to attribute his cameo…

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!
