Glass Animals

I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I definitely did but since I feel like I’m running around trying to play catch up, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for a recap of the weekend. For now, let’s just start our Monday with some marvelous music: Glass Animals.


Fill me in on your weekend – what’d yo do?

Re-Discovering A Good Band

I love running across new music. No surprise, right? I’m not sure if this song came on one of my Spotify radio stations or how I ran across it but I loved it right away and had it on repeat for awhile, knowing I’d need to share it soon enough. (FYI – This is a mesh with another song..)

Of course you know me, find one song I love and I move on to figure out if I like anything else from that artist…and then I realize I know the band but forgot about them! (gasp) Anyone else know this song?

In my research it also appears Neulore will release a new album later this month!! You better believe I can’t wait to get my hands on it and give it a listen! But thankfully with a little internet snooping (aka Google search) I found another song from the new album…whoa!

All I can say is that I’m excited for the new album…


What band’s have you re-discovered lately?

The Best of August 2014

Can you believe it’s already the end of August? Yesterday was my last day with Pledge and it was extremely bittersweet. Despite leaving on great terms and knowing that I’m leaving to pursue a dream and make a huge impact, I was in tears by 9:30am as I posted my farewell on Instagram.

It was a quiet day for me with all of my campaigns handed over to my replacement and all intros made. The emails coming through were strictly “goodbye” and “thank you” with the occasional question or project update. One of the campaigns I managed (and pledged for) was the Soil & the Sun’s “Meridian.” This band is truly talented and I couldn’t wait until Monday to share, so here’s a video they posted of the ladies in the band performing “I Know It (I Feel It, Too).” Truly remarkable.



Anyway, it is the end of the month and it’s been a crazy month so I thought we’d look back on some of my favorite posts from the month…

What was your favorite part of August?

Dearly Departed

I know I’ve said on numerous occasions how much I love the CrossFit community but it still surprises me how it’s provided me such a support group. Saturday night I went out to dinner and drinks with a couple of the Dawn Patrol (5:30am class) girls. After dinner we met up with another group of CrossFitters at another bar. It was a fun night and honestly, just what I needed to take my mind off all of the 50 States planning that needs to go down.

It was super humid so it wasn’t an easy run but I pushed through which makes me feel like I’m on the right path to repairing my relationship with running post-marathon deferment.

Obviously this calls for music. My Sunday soundtrack this weekend called for a little Shakey Graves, especially after hearing one of the songs off his new album due out in October called “Dearly Departed.”


SO GOOD, right? I swear I could listen to it on repeat for hours. And those harmonies with Esme Patterson – whoa! I hope they collaborate more often because it’s so good! But regardless, it definitely set the soundtrack for the rest of the day.


Side note: I made an appearance over at Olives N Wine today, check it out!
