Summer Solstice Jams

As I’m sure most of you know or have figured out, I love a good playlist. I can listen to the same songs over and over and be happy. Summertime always makes me think of being a kid and being in my room with the windows open (usually supposed to be cleaning) but most likely hanging out with my two older sisters singing the words to all the songs we knew. Man I loved that time in my life. This is a Summer playlist, some take me back to that time, some just scream summer to me. Hope you can enjoy these Summer Jams too!

Summer Solstice

Am I the only one who has been in complete denial that not only is it summer, but almost JULY?! I just can’t get excited about hot weather, I’m a fall and winter gal through and through, but summer does have its perks: pretty flowers, fresh fruits and veggies, warm nights, grilling out, and longer daylight to be out with the animals. Here’s what’s keeping me motivated and inspired (as hard as it is in this heat) this June. Hope you enjoy!
