mixtape mood – soul to soul

“if music be the food of love, play on.”

hello and a very good morning, everyone!
i hope everyone had a blissful summer weekend.  rob & i scored some fantastic table lamps at a sidewalk sale, went on an etsy & ebay shopping spree for our humble abode and little beach wedding, whipped up some pancetta, english pea & white truffle risotto, soaked in “a single man” and “hot tub time machine” {awesome 80’s jams, not so funny} and wound down the weekend with the exquisite premiere episode of mad men. all in all, an indulgent, productive and lazy weekend all rolled into one.

and now, it is monday.

i don’t know much about your morning routines, but for yours truly, mondays are far more fun with a fresh list of tunes to play throughout the day.  so, to kick off our week on the right foot, i’ve pieced together this soulful little mixtape.  a bit of motown, a dash of indie rock and a heavy pour of soul, this string of songs will have us dancing in our seats in no time!
