Summer 2014 Playlist

Friday, June 27, 2014

July 4th has always been a special holiday to our family.  When I was little I would get up early to play tennis and watch Wimbledon, and then rush to spend the rest of the day at the pool.  Our neighborhood pool would make the 4th a pretty big deal, with contests and festivities all day long.  At night we would watch our dad shoot off illegal fireworks until the cops showed up.  Ironic that I’m now married to one :).  It’s hard not to long for simpler times, particularly when we don’t have any set plans for the holiday weekend.  What about you guys?  Do you have any old or new holiday traditions?

Winter Playlist and Small Sadnesses

Friday, January 31, 2014

The true truth about things is that January has been a slight amount of a bummer for me.  I have had a small sadness which has most likely been made worse by a good old fashioned case of seasonal affective disorder.  When I say small I mean it because I know that my sadness has been featherweight compared to the heaviness of other possible sadnesses to be had in the world.  Events of this month have led me to the conclusion that I must give up my bug.  Some of you may know that my car up until this point has been a VW Beetle convertible.  It was and continues to be my dream car.  It was the first thing I bought when I had enough money after I started working a big girl job and it was a pretty triumphant day as I have wanted one since before I can remember.  And now it is time to let it go.  I realize that forming an attachment to an object (and particularly a car) is quite a silly thing to do.  But I can’t help but feel like over the years it has become a small part of me.  Not to mention it was paid off and now I will have car payments again.  Yuck.  So now I will be getting a new car.  One that I frankly don’t want.  A car like a Honda or Toyota that is a practical and mature decision because it is attractive, reasonably priced, more reliable and cheaper to fix if it needs repairs.  Blah blah blah.  So I will allow myself this last day of January to feel a tiny bit sorry for myself and sorry for my poor little bug.  I will be listening to this playlist with some of the songs I have been enjoying lately.  I hope you guys enjoy them too.  I promise I intend to be more upbeat in February.

For the Love of Friday- Transition to Fall

Friday, September 20, 2013

According to the calendar people (who are they really?), this Sunday marks the first official day of fall.  This makes me exceptionally happy and I realize our love for fall may be a little excessive but we refuse to stop talking about it.  Our apologies.   I love the cute pumpkins, delicious treats, crunchy leaves, cozy clothes, and the fact that my favorite holiday gets thrown in the middle of it all doesn’t hurt either.  But the part of fall I love the most is the way that it feels.  There is a change in the air and a crispness that is almost palpable.  The heaviness of summer humidity finally gives in and breathing seems easier.  The air even smells different although it is really quite difficult to pinpoint the scent.   It feels more drastic to me than the transition between any of the other seasons.
