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 […]

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: Wonder

Move over Beyoncé. Emeli Sandé’s album Our Version of Events is AMAZING – one of my most favorites in a long time. While a lot of the songs on this album are soulful and quiet, ‘Wonder’ is so energizing and joyful. Happy Friday! Speaking of Beyoncé, I’m excited to see this. How about you?

An astonishing cover for your Friday by Bon Iver. We are looking forward to a quiet weekend at home, that will include a date night to this new spot, and coffee and conversation by the fireplace (even though we’re expecting 79 degree weather… thank you San Diego!). Any lovely plans for this weekend? I would […]

Sound Check: Sometimes He Does

My grandparents in the mountains of NC This tune by Lori McKenna is haunting, and at first listen, sounds like a mournful ballad about how her man doesn’t love her the way he should. But the chorus clarifies the intention of this bittersweet song, which is that the love he has for her runs more […]

Sound Check: Work With What You Got

PLAY // Work With What You Got My man isn’t scheduled to deploy for quite some time, and we have no babies (yet). And even though Navy life for us has been inconvenient and a pain in the keester at times, I am in awe of the women (and men too!) who juggle life with […]
