The Winter Playlist 2015

Man, the things that happen to us. I’m sorry, how is it suddenly the middle of December? It has been a strange, winding, whirlwind sequence of events. The kind that has made me feel like Hannah on Girls, eating bread I have done stuff to and collecting weird stories, like adventurous women DO. And it’s…

The Autumn Playlist 2015

It’s been a few months since the last playlist. I suppose that’s obvious, isn’t it? I do post them with the start of each season, after all. Maybe this time around I am focusing on the time that has passed between playlists because it has been significant. The last playlist I made for you was…

The Summer Playlist 2015

Maybe you’ve wondered where I’ve been. Maybe you’ve unfollowed me on Twitter. Maybe you’ve forgotten about me. Maybe you haven’t given any of this a single thought.

The Summer Playlist 2014

Ahhhh, summer. The best time of year. Heat, humidity, pools, grills, sunshine, the scent of freshly mown lawns. But I know what you’re thinking: I am late. Summer solstice was days ago-as was my birthday-and both came and passed us by, and I didn’t even give the slightest acknowledgment. It’s been a busy week or…
