mixtape mood – cruisin

“in summer, the song sings itself.”

happy monday friends!
i hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  the world cup consumed most of our time as we spent both days at our favorite neighborhood cafe watching the crazy games, bbq-ing and sipping delicious homemade sangria. sunday evening was all about unwinding, writing this week’s blog posts while watching the nail biting nba finals {rob’s choice} and the magnificent tony awards {my choice}.
i thought i’d kick off this week with a cool new mixtape to ease us back into the office space. there is a sea of awesome new and old songs for the summer…and i cherry picked a few of my faves just for you.
what’s on your summer playlist?
