Springing into March

Do you hear what I hear?

The sound of birds chirping is music to my ears (no pun intended), although I have no real complaints regarding my first, dare I say, ‘winter’ in California. It barely dipped below 50 degrees the last few months; LA got nothin’ on East Coast winters, that’s for sure.

Although there’s greenery year-round, today was strangely the first day I noticed that everything looked awake. My light morning walk on my usual path was noticeably more vibrant and fragrant than I remembered. I even had the pleasure of sharing my stroll with two playful Monarch butterflies that couldn’t wait to take on the day.

Songbirds and butterflies aside, the release of my March playlist is also buzzing around. It’s a compilation of upbeat newbies & goldies that’ll put a little pep in your step as we spring into the new seez.

Happy listening.

Groovin’ through February

Play that funky music.

Every month, I’m going to share with you a curated playlist of my current top music picks via Spotify. It’ll be a mix of old school and new school tunes for you to rock to, cry to, work to, laugh to, and so on.

Music has always been one of the favorite forms of therapy — my friends even dubbed me ‘iPod girl’ in high school. Not sure how I feel about that looking back now, but I was always strapped with my 160GB iPod classic (RIP) and it just goes to show how much I truly love music. Its mood-improving powers are undeniable. There’s almost nothing you can’t overcome with a solid soundtrack blasting. 

Here is February’s. Enjoy, ya’ll!
