Tunes To Bake To Playlist

With only 2 days to go before the big day, I’ll be spending my evening prepping pie crust and polishing silver. With that in mind, I made a new playlist yesterday suitable for all your baking, cooking, and dancing in the kitchen needs. Listen below or click here to follow this playlist on Spotify.

Put on a Happy Face

I have this go-to playlist. Do you have one of those? Something you put on anytime you need a little smile? Well, today I thought I’d share mine with you. It’s called “Put on a Happy Face,” and it’s sure to brighten your midweek slump!

Summer Playlist

"If your life needs more glamour simply change your playlist!" | Hannah & Husband

I have long held this theory that people who don’t feel like their life is fabulous enough are just listening to the wrong playlist. With that in mind, please accept this little musical gift from us to you!

But first: The best thing you’ll see all day…

What’s been playing around our house lately…


Southern Summer Solstice

A page from my sketchbook this week.

A page from my sketchbook this week.

Today is the Summer Solstice, and I know that in other parts of the country you’re still wearing a sweater on your nightly strolls… But y’all summer has already come to East Tennessee! It was 90°+ all week complete with those familiar, short summer storm bursts as more heat rolls into the valley.

So please accept my wishes for a happy Summer Solstice with this little playlist. It is best enjoyed sipping a gin & tonic (says Husband) or a sparkling water (says me) on the front porch.

Weekend-ing Tunes

Happy first weekend of Spring, y’all! I often say that people who feel like their life isn’t glamorous enough just don’t have the right soundtrack. So I thought I’d share what we’ll be listening to this weekend. Enjoy!

A Little Mood Music

I am a Spotify zealot and iTunes devotee so mood music for the season is a must. With that said, I’ve had several requests for Christmas music lately so I thought I would just do a little post about some of my favorite albums to keep on in the background while baking cookies, opening presents, and drinking champagne. Enjoy!
