Sound Check: Remember My Name

This lovely Malaysian singer named Yuna is worth a listen – I’ve really enjoyed listening to her sweet voice the last few weeks. I also wish I could pull off a head scarf like she can, don’t you? She picked up songwriting at the age of 19 while in law school. I’m so glad she did! Happy […]

Summer Romance Part 2: Playlist

A few weeks ago I mentioned that the Mr and I were making the most of the little time we have to spend together this summer. Here’s a little romantic soundtrack that has been playing in the background during these sweet times, if you’d like a listen. It’s also just a lovely playlist for lazy […]

Sound Check: Johnnyswim

I just discovered Johnnyswim this week, a fantastic husband-and-wife duo (Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano) and had to share them with you. This is some of the most wonderful music I have encountered in a long time, and it was tough to settle on which one of their gems to share. “Adelina” is just achingly good, a […]

Sound Check: One Works Better

Have you ever watched the series Nashville? It has become one of my favorites, and not only because it stars Connie Britton (you Friday Night Lights fans know exactly what I’m talking about), but also because the music is absolutely AMAZING. And it’s all brilliantly performed by the actors themselves. “One Works Better” is a gem, […]

Sound Check: Who’s Lovin’ You

Here’s a sweet subway performance by Michael Bublé. How cool would it be to step out of a subway car and get your own impromptu concert? This busy weekend will include editing a best friend’s wedding video (four years later, eesh!), taking a barre class, clocking some serious beach time, running this race, and of course a […]

Some friends and I are running a 200 mile relay race this weekend from Huntington Beach to San Diego. The race will benefit a school here in San Diego called Monarch, that specifically serves homeless kids. The most exciting part about the race is that a team of older kids from Monarch who wanted to get involved […]

Sound Check: Compliment Your Soul

The Mr. is coming home today (!) and so I thought I’d match my happy mood with this happy tune by Dan Croll (along with the somewhat bizarre music video). UPDATE: A friend shared this version of the song with me, which is equally amazing! Have a lovely weekend! xoxo

Sound Check: I’ll Keep You Safe

I’ve felt a little nostalgic the last few days with Mr being gone. This lovely song by Sleeping at Last is comforting on this cloudy morning… It reminds me that I don’t have to live life perfectly to be loved or held close. And that God is with me, whether my husband is or not. . . […]

Sound Check: On Top of the World

Here’s a heartwarming, happy song for your Friday, from Imagine Dragons. I’m heading out to Portland today for a dear friend’s birthday. Eight girlfriends, coffee, cocktails, lots of dancing, and sequins. Perfect for my plan to make the time pass quickly! Happy weekend! xo (p.s. How precious is this version of today’s song?)
