Kye Kye. Trees & Trust - Monday Morning Motivation

Kye Kye weaves straight scripture throughout most of her songs, which is blended between the most beautiful vocals. I love the thought behind each lyric. For example, this chorus "Lord help me, Help me remember (Jon.14:26) flesh is weak, my spirit's strong, (Mat.26:41) dressed the trees you saw their splendor more to you, love I am more. (Mat.6:26-34)" Bloody brilliant.

Jack Johnson. Good People - Monday Morning Motivation


Jack Johnson sings like September- cheery with the wrap up of summer heat and joy, but with all the comforts of fall. Bopants and I share a mutual Jack obsession in the dating days with his music, so there's also that connection to falling in love in the fall with his serenades. Happy start to Fall!

Happy 1 Month Baby Boy!

Oh sweet Levi, you are just the darn cutest peanut in the whole wide world. I am entirely obsessed with you. In the timeframe of 30ish day, you have stolen our souls with your snuggles and poop dances and burps and squeaks. I am beyond blessed to be your momma and spend my days staring at that growing face of yours. You are quickly becoming one of my best friends and favorite people on the planet- which is impressive considering you don't talk to me and tend to have more bodily functions than my average amigo. Watching Bopants grow from husband to daddy has been a priceless experience that makes me swoon for that stud even more than I did before.

Some of my favorite memories with you from this month have been watching many friends and family fall in love with you. Many walking trips around the lake and mall. Daytime naps. Funny face wiping. Squeaky outcries. That pink baby smell. All things soft and precious. Being a baby is just the coolest, I'm sure. You are pretty darn entertaining.

Thank you buddy. Thanks for stretching us, molding us, cracking us up and giving us another great reason to get out of bed in the morning...or 2/5am for your sleepy feedings.

The Avett Brothers. Laundry Room - Monday Morning Motivation


September calls for some beloved Avett Brothers. By far one of my favorite live acoustics performed by this duo. Everything from the weather to the beards to the outfit screams fall. I embrace this with open arms and ears.

Avalanche City. Sunset - Monday Morning Motivation


I rarely post official music videos, but Avalanche City always has the cutest and most creative gems. Their bubbly tunes and bright colors are the perfect wrap up to August. "We'll steal love songs tonight" - dynamite lyric.

Dear...

Dear Facebook Garage Sales, I should save us all the trouble and sign up for rehab therapy due to my pure addiction to you. Better than eBay. I check you literally every hour and have purchased flower pots, combat boots, baby goods and tennis shoes on you in the past 2 weeks. Whoops. Dearest chewy granola bars, who knew you would be the midnight snack lifesaver. I've downed an embarrassing amount of you guys in the past 15 days. Let the good times roll. BBC Network, I bestow the golden trophy of show creation on/to you and you alone. Between Doctor Who, Sherlock and Call the Midwife - you struck a creative tv goldmine. Beats all American tv all day everyday. To the inverter of color changing diapers, you da you da best! Lifesaver in the infant changing department. Sweet lil Levi, I am crazy madly insanely head over heels in love with you!! Everyday you catch me off guard with something new or more precious than the day before. I am loving this whole motherhood shindig.

Future of Forestry. Slow Your Breath Down - Monday Morning Motivation

Future of Forestry is one of those bands I have listened to for years and just recently saw via video and was surprised by the visuals of the band. Not who I pictured, but a million times better. One of my favorite songs.
