music mix 02: street joy


you know those weekends you decide to fully embrace? the ones where you put off everything that needs to be done so you can do everything you want to do and instead of waking up early, you sleep in? or maybe you don't sleep in and you get up early anyway because you told your husband you wanted to learn to fish and he held you to it, so you spend the day wading in a river, scaring the trout one bad cast after next. the point is, you missed that short window of cool morning temperatures and have to wait until after the heat of the day to get your run in {which you're sort of dragging your feet about doing}.

that is when you load this playlist onto your ipod, put one foot in front of the other, and zone out. each song has the relaxed, easy sound of an early summer evening when the is sun sinking into the horizon. the bluesy riffs and lazy sounds of the slide guitar make me think of sitting on the porch and drinking something refreshing, like a juicy marg. this mix will take you there - a sort of mental "pre-game", if you will. it's the perfect way to cap off a self-indulgent weekend.

happy listening!

*yes, that is my handsome husband fly fishing with our son strapped to his chest pictured above. meanwhile, i almost got swept away by the current trying to capture the shot {he's got the skills and coordination i can only dream of}.*
