I’m not entirely sure how it is that a week can pass so quickly and seemingly without a moment to spare. This week’s distractions included no-bake cookies, a corgi puppy, happy hours and dreams of starting a paleo diet that are currently being overshadowed by aforementioned no-bake cookies….and happy hours.
No contest, really.
This weeks playlist is a mixture of chill autumn vibes and a few more upbeat recent obsessions. Enjoy!
HOLY SMOKES have things been busy over here on the west coast or what.
Just as fall has been making it’s slow-but-steady appearance here in Seattle, the ever increasing amount of dots on my iphone’s calendar continue to hastily pop up. I have had a jam packed schedule that has been more spontaneous and unpredictable than normal (with the exception of Saturday brunch, because let’s be honest…you can always count on brunch with me) but I’m definitely not complaining. With each new day comes a new adventure, and what better way is there to live than that?
Monday playlist is here and I urge you to blast it on your morning commute. Beat those blues, ya’ll.
I’ve got Europe photos to share and cool places in Seattle to rant about. RLTC is back for fall, babay.
As I sit in my third airport in two days, the excitement of going to Europe again has finally set in. The last leg of the journey is finally in motion, and the anticipation of exploring new cities with my best friend and my camera is beginning to take over.
It’s labor day, so hopefully that means you’re spending your day–you know–not laboring. In the mean time, it’s playlist day! So from the floor of BNA I present to you this weeks collection of spotify jams.
I can’t wait to share my wandering with you all! So many photos to take and so much cheese to eat; that’s why everyone goes to Europe, right? Tomorrow I wake up in Vienna. Stoked.

As everyone is I’m sure aware by this point in the day, it’s Tuesday (or rather, for some of you, it was). Things have been so crazy the last few weeks that I’ve had to step back from blogging a little to focus on me and what I’ve got going on right now. Last week was vacation (and a side step away from the grid) and this week I’ve started my new life in Seattle and my new job! I can’t wait to update what’s been going on, but for noww… how’s a playlist sound?
I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I moved into my house in Nashville. I can’t believe it’s already been five years since I moved away from my home state of Arkansas to start a completely new chapter of life that has shaped me more than I can explain. College, friends, people who introduced me to hot chicken.. it’s been a doozy. Although this won’t be my sappy “I’m going to miss you Nashville,” post you can rest assured that one will be coming at some point in the next few weeks. Why? I’ll tell you.
For those of you who don’t know, in a few weeks I’ll be uprooting from this amazing town I’ve been calling home and relocating to the pacific northwest. Seattle! There are a lot of things on the horizon for me and it’s just a move I know I need and want to make. It’s certainly not that I’m hot happy in Nashville, I love it here; Everything just fell into place so quickly and seamlessly and there has never been better time for relocating. I’m so excited for a new wind of creativity and inspiration; a regular diet of coffee and poutine (thanks canada); and new people and experiences that await me.
Before I get there, though, I’ve got a trip to the beach in two weeks and a trip to europe in a month. This playlist is called countdown for more reasons that I can even explain. So here it is! Monday playlist: Countdown.
Things I learned this weekend that might be helpful to everyone else in the world:
-Running outside is great; running outside when it’s 95 degrees is a great way to feel like you’re living your last moments.
-If you like Pina Coladas, then you’ll love the way you smell for 48 hours after using coconut oil to moisturizer your beach-ready legs.
-According to Instagram, Paddle-boarding is the new black.
-If you’re still anxious to learn how to twerk, pay attention to what your body does next time there’s suddenly wasp flying near you.
-Surprisingly enough, the “World Cup” isn’t a souvenir pint glass that you receive if you successfully visit all of the villages in Epcot.
And the final thing I know after this weekend:
-Listening to this playlist will get you amped
Hope you guys got a little bit of a laugh on this Monday morning!
We spent one of our last days in Spain on the beach. After having such a jam packed itinerary, it was really nice to know the only things ahead of us that day were a warm blanket of brown-sugar colored sand, the ocean’s breeze and maybe a pitcher of sangria. (Maybe can also be read as “definitely”).
It’s a Monday and I’ve finally had time to sit and reevaluate priorities and responsibilities for my life in Nashville; while I love to be always going, there’s a pile of work (next to the trip’s laundry) that always seems to pile up. Being my own boss is great because I can work remotely and get a lot done wherever I am. Being my own boss also means that when I return from trips I have a day of back-to-back meetings, that feel more like speed-dates, at the cafe I frequent. Needless to say, my next few days are a little hectic.
Wednesday I’m driving into the hills of West Virginia for a final weekend of R&R before the dog days of summer truly arrive. Upon my return I’ll be moving into a new house and starting a new wave of summer clients. It is a hearty to do list, but I’m really excited to see what’s up next. Life gets crazy and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Enjoy the playlist! It’s a little bit of bluegrass and a little bit inspired by the beach (aka where I wish I was every second of these hot months):
