autumn mixtape

Hey lovely readers – this season I’ve been loving introspective tunes, particularly this misty, gray month of November.  In my mind, it’s not quite winter yet (even though I’ve been singing Christmas songs since Halloween).  So here’s just a few splendid songs I’ve had on repeat these past few weeks.Related image Continue reading

Theme Song: I Feel it All by Feist, here

Theme songs – Take Me (Aly and AJ), Get Free (Lana Del Rey)
