press play – lazy summer days

“how sweet I roamed from field to field, and tasted all the summer’s pride.”

when i turn on the radio in june, i hear an endless string of cheerful summer anthems – which is fun most of the time, but there are those days where i crave some laid-back lazy day music. you know, for those days when we sneak off to the park during lunch to sprawl on the grass, sip fresh lemonade and read, “just kids.” when we cruise along the sea at sunset. when we sit on our front stoop, creamsicle in hand, watching and dreaming all afternoon. you know, those perfect, lazy summer days.
so i mixed together some of my new and old faves of the season. listening to these helps me celebrate the art of doing nothing…and loving every second of it.

i hope you like it too. 🙂

  2. ‘Island in the Sun’ by Weezer and ‘Wouldn’t it be nice’ by the Beach Boys!

    How I wish I could soak in some sunny rays.. It’s absolutely pouring in Holland right now. Sigh, I miss California…

  9. What a perfect playlist! Summer anthems have their place, but frankly, I far prefer a lazy day with popsicle in hand!
