Good Morning and Happy Friday, everyone! We’ve made it to another weekend!
Earlier this week I talked about getting into a Spring state of mind since the snow, sleet, ice, and bitterly cold temperatures were starting to get me down. While I ready my floral print everything, pastels, and spend time in local greenhouses and at flower shows in an attempt to inject some nature and brighter colors into my life- I also needed a seasonally appropriate soundtrack to keep my spirits up until the warmer weather gets here!
Using 8Tracks– which remains one of my favorite ways to create/swap what are essentially good ol’ fashioned mixtapes online- I created “In Bloom”- a brief, ten-track playlist of some of my favorite upbeat and dreamy songs that range from recent releases to a couple of older, classic indie tunes.
I also lined up these songs in Spotify for when I’m in the car- and honestly they make my commute feel a little more cheery and calming despite the fact that there are still some pretty intimidating-looking snowbanks along the roadsides here in Massachusetts.
But I digress! You can listen to the Playlist below (or by CLICKING HERE)
And for the curious- here’s the tracklisting:
- Lucy Dacus – La Vie en Rose
- Cults – Go Outside
- Belle and Sebastian – Another Sunny Day
- Deerhunter – No One’s Sleeping
- Jenny Lewis – Red Bull & Hennessey
- Tall Heights – The Deep End
- Soccer Mommy – Blossom
- Billie Eilish – When The Party’s Over
- Beirut – Gallipoli
- Death Cab For Cutie – Northern Lights
This coming weekend I’ll be visiting one of my favorite art museums in the city and bracing myself for some much-needed Spring cleaning around my closet and bedroom- all while losing an hour of precious sleep once Daylight Savings Time kicks in on Sunday morning!
I’ll be back on Monday (and will undoubtedly be sleepy and confused when I am)– so here’s to a fun, warm, safe weekend to you all! Enjoy!
