Music Mondays: Songs for Inspiration

One of my ultimate loves is music.

When we were younger, my sister and I used to blow so much money on blank CD’s just to make playlists. We would make them for everything: special events, gifts, driving to school, even just for the month! We still share Spotify playlists today, and my sister inspires me to discover new music all the time. Additionally, Berty and I find ourselves taking road trips all.the.time. This means that we have lots of time to discover tunes and listen to new artists! Music plays a big role in our lives. We recently bought a Sonos speaker for our livingroom and every time we walk in the door, the music comes on! I still hold true to the idea that for every life event, there is music that can bring back those memories.

Every Monday, Berty and I will post a playlist to get you pumped for the week. These playlists will be inspired by events happening in our lives, but we love suggestions too! You can find these playlists on our Spotify account. Follow along with us!


Playlist 01: Music To Inspire

I need a lot of inspiration this week. Berty is gone in Tennessee until Friday (wahh!) and I have a large checklist of things to do around our new apartment. I also begin online classes Thursday! My plate is quickly becoming full so this playlist is helping to pick me up and get me started on all the ‘beginnings’ of the week. You can find the music list right below, or you can find our playlist already on Spotify. Enjoy!

    So this blog thing…you rock at it! Love keeping up with all your adventures this way. Also, I’ve been obsessed with HAIM for awhile now. They sound so good on our record player!

      Thanks Kendyl! I’m glad you like it! Also, I just looked up HAIM on Spotify to hear what they’re about – thanks for the recommendation!
