mixtape mood – this or that

“william miller: so russell…what do you love about music?
russell hammond: to begin with, everything.”

hello monday!
how was everyone’s weekend? yesterday my favorite pal, maggie, picked me up at a shocking morning hour for a trip across the bay to the alameda antique flea market.  she was my shopping partner in crime as we perused the stunning vintage setees, farmhouse tables, palace worthy fine china and knick knacks and do dads in between. in the end, i left with a bag of vintage seashells for our little beach wedding decor and enjoyed a lovely sunday morning full of good girlfriend talk and a tummy rubbing brunch.
as a token of thanks to maggie, and to help us stay awake as we crossed the bay bridge, i whipped up a little road trip mix for our mini adventure. lots of pep and full of funk, it is my new favorite morning mix.
so here i am, again, sharing this mixtape goodness with all of you. yes, i love it that much..and i hope you do too.
here’s to our last month of summer {i can’t believe it’s august}!
ps: today is the last day to enter in our awesome large soy travel candle giveaway! come on, give it a whirl!

  1. I can’t believe you were so close! Just missed you as we arrived home to Alameda last night! Anyway, am happy to be back and enjoying your playlists (you have hopelessly cool taste in music). Can’t wait to get together sometime soon. Will shoot you an email.
