Well, friends, we made it to 2018! I hope you all had a very happy new year and enjoyed your first week and a half of January. I have been quiet for the last few days because I have been battling a cold and focused on getting in lots of rest and relaxation. For that reason, my January 2018 playlist is full of upbeat and happy songs (I dare you not to tap your toes to the Bomba Estéreo remix of “Everything Now”!) to help keep me, and now you, in a positive mood and new year state of mind.
I know I didn’t deliver my promised post-Coachella recap and that’s because I sadly didn’t end up seeing a lot of the festival this year. I was sick for the majority of Saturday and Sunday and unfortunately missed out on a lot of the acts. I was understandably incredibly disappointed…I had looked forward to the festival for an entire year and then got about 1/10th of the experience I was expecting and hoping for. It has taken the past couple of weeks to recover both physically and from the let down of missing something I so wanted to experience.
Fortunately my husband and I are planning on a summer jam packed full of concerts and festivals to make up for Coachella and are ultimately catching the majority of acts we didn’t get to see over the next few months. All hope is not lost!
This May playlist is largely serving the purpose of getting me, and hopefully all of you, ready for warm, sunlit and music-filled days ahead. It’s full of cheery songs meant to take you from the bright and crisp days of spring into the long and languid days of summer.
