That Week Music Monday Becomes New Music Tuesday

You know it’s been a busy week when I miss Music Monday. I’d hate to leave you all hanging without some awesome tunes, so we can make this week’s Music Monday a New Music Tuesday, right? I know I’m getting down to the wire of making that happen but the day’s not over so here I come…


I know Mumford & Sons may not be for everyone but I was really excited when I saw they had a new album coming out and I HAD to listen to it right away!

And let me tell you, this album is not quite the Mumford we’re used to hearing, but this album does not disappoint. I’ve had it on repeat for the last couple weeks and still loving it just the same.

I hope you do too!

Music Monday

Thank you to everyone for your kind words on my Thinking Out Loud post last week. Sometimes it’s hard to share the not so perfect side of things. We put up this mask of how our lives are and we share the good times but as we all know, things aren’t always pleasant. Sharing the not so pleasant moments isn’t easy or always fun, but it makes us REAL.

Last week’s Music Monday was about music that makes me feel something. Today’s is music that helps me relax.

As I sat in a coffee shop in Kansas Saturday morning with a to-do list a mile long and more overwhelming than anything (I have a tendency to add more things to my list faster than I can cross anything off), I stuffed ear buds in my ears and turned the music up to help block out those around me and just get in a zone.

Sometimes it’s easy to get distracted and I need whatever I can to get in the zone, focus and get things done. My todo list will always be a mile long and sometimes I just have to remind myself that I can only do so much and then find the best way to support myself through it. This was that.

Headphones in. Music up. Breathing.
