mixtape mood – bright eyes

“there shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.”
– celia thaxter

hello friends!
it’s the last official week of summer before the long weekend eases us into autumn. 
so what are we to do?
walk or cycle instead of drive. make time for a lunch in the sun. take an afternoon stroll to the corner cafe for a tall glass of iced tea. have a scoop of mint chip ice cream. savor every moment. 
and to encourage us along our last stretch of summer fun, here are a few of my favorite tunes.
