You know it’ll be a good morning when you wake up and get re-reminded that one of your favourite bands released a new album along with all the other new albums that have come out recently. Hooray for new music! Time to have a mini jam session throughout today to some sweet tunes.
Whether you’re outside enjoying those glorious rays or are sitting inside, window cracked open, and sun peering in, these tunes will mix perfectly with the warmth wafting all around and the happy feelings it evokes within. Get up and dance or bob your head around, whatever you do, just enjoy the lovely no matter what.
Today marks my 25th birthday, it’s been a whirlwind of an adventure and I can’t wait for the next 25 (It feels weird saying that) And what’s a great way to start off the day then to create a lovely playlist of songs for you — Because what’s a better way to celebrate a time like this then with friends and good music. So put on your favourite outfit, pop in your headphones, grab some cake, and press play; Time for a musical adventure, quarter of a century style.

Every day has a different feeling, a different framework of motions and thoughts. Mondays are never the best, no day can be great, but then can also be the opposite, they can be wonderful. Here’s an excerpt from my writing for this late Monday evening.. Listen to the tracks, immerse yourself in whatever you’re doing and just breathe.
Believe in beauty even when you think there is none left in the world. Try and keep your heart open, let your eyes see and your organs feel. No matter what, don’t give up. No matter how hard, no matter how terribly wretched it may become, attempt to keep some shred of hope alive. For it may be the last strand of dreams left.

The sun rises and the beams stream through the leaves. The breeze rushes past, laughter floats, and adventures begin. It’s a time of heat, fun and summer love.

While it may be raining outside, don’t let the drizzle upon your windowsill stop you from kicking back and enjoying the spring time air. I find when it rains out, it’s nice to just sit back, relax, grab a book, and listen to the rain fall. There’s something distinctly calming about it.
