These are songs that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Some of from when I was a kid, some from high school, some from college, some from after, and some from now. These songs = love (to me). I’m sure I’m forgetting about a thousand.
*This list is ultimately incomplete without “These Are the Days” by Van Morrison, but it is not on Spotify…terrible.

lately, I have been obsessed with the following songs. Dancing around my kitchen, yoga-ing to them, singing in the car kind of obsessed.
I apologize ahead of time for the inclusion of not one, but TWO Taylor Swift songs. This song “22″ really has a hold of me nostalgia-wise lately…probably because at 22 I spent the entire year goofing off and having dance parties with roommates (as pictured above) …miss y’all!
Ellie Goulding “Figure 8″
Trevor Hall “Om Shakti Om”
Willy Moon “Yeah Yeah”
Taylor Swift “I Knew You Were Trouble”
Taylor Swift “22″
Ben Harper “Forever”
Eclectic I know…not sure I know anyone else who is listening to yoga music in heavy rotation with Taylor Swift & Skrillex’s main squeeze…ahhh, whatevs, I love it!

yep, that’s right. this is my shower dancing playlist.
dancing in the shower (preferably with a beverage) is essential and having an iPad has made it so much more fun — put on early 90s pop or Jackie Wilson radio on Pandora and you’re all set! Or you can queue up this playlist…hopefully your shower doesn’t last longer than 9 minutes…haha
“Call Me Maybe” — Carly Rae Jepsen
“Settle Down” — Kimbra
”Take It Out On Me” — Chairlift

ok, so I’ve always run off and on, mostly outside (I HATE treadmills).
When living in Edinburgh, I got really into it and ended up running my own half-marathon right before we moved. I tried to keep it up while living in Austin, but the heat was pretty much unbearable.
A hamstring strain has kept me from it since being back in Indiana, as well as simply not having enough hours in the day to get everything I want to do done!
IN SHORT: Excuses, excuses, excuses. Since the weather is so beautiful, I’ve decided to get back out there. Good music is a must when running, so here are five songs getting me motivated right now:
“Shake It Out” — Florence + the Machine
“Best of My Love” — The Emotions
“We Are Young” — Fun. feat. Janelle Monae
“Under the Blacklight” — Rilo Kiley
“Take a Minute” — K’naan

So I haven’t painted in WAY too long…
I’m starting some new projects today. I want to give my new easel a workout and break in the amazing upstairs studio space we have in this new house.
Like I’ve said before, whenever I am painting, drawing, cutting, decoupaging, etc. there MUST be music blasting. I’ve been getting a playlist ready for today and thought you might enjoy it.
