Monthly Mixtape: Ivory Keys and Falling Leaves

Monthly Mixtape: Ivory Keys and Falling Leaves / Bev Cooks

Novembeeeeer! I can’t even talk about it. This garden? (yet I’m going to talk about it.) All ripped out and bagged. The planters are all empty. The hanging ferns are toast as well. The sofa and dining chair pillows have all become slides for the basement stairs and fort anchors for the gremlins, and wool […]

Monthly Mixtape: Baguettes and Berets

Although I do think I’m actually eating a croissant here. TANT PIS, LE GARS. At last! Your Francaaaais mixtape. I will confess, my knowledge of French music was actually pretty limited before putting this playlist together. Outside of Stereolab, the Amélie soundtrack and Brigitte Bardot, I was jumping in cold! Well, cool. I know the […]

Monthly Mixtape: Straw Visor and New Moon

August! Yeah it completely freaks me out, too. The gremlins start KIN-DER-GAR-TEN in 15 minutes, the ’embers are right around the corner, and some of my spring potted plants are expectedly crispy on the unders. Tiiiime keeps on tickin’ tickin’, into the fuuutuuuuure. STOP IT. However, it’s my birthday month, so I refuse to get […]

Monthly Mixtape: Sun Hats and Seedlings

April! About. frickin’. time. Not that I’m trying to wish life away. My jowls are squeezing the reins of time continuum like DUUUUUUUUDE CHIIIIILL. But the rest of me is super pumped to see April. First of all, today’s our anniversary! Wedding. 14 years. So insane. Secondly, I pick up kindergarten enrollment packs today and […]

Monthly Mixtape: Snowflakes and Honey

Happy February! …five days in. And don’t look at me like that – this mixtape is the furthest from over-the-top sap. Matter of fact, it’s hardly about love or loving or lovers at all! (minus Gillian’s song My First Lover, which isn’t even romantic, but simply incredible and everyone must store this song somewhere in […]

Monthly Mixtape: My Eyes are Up Here

November! How? HOW. And no, you’re right –  totally didn’t get a mixtape up last month. It was one of those little life eras where there was LESS than zero time to pull one together. My bad! Don’t hate. Just appreciate? I hope this one makes it up to you, though. Because it’s kind of […]

Monthly Mixtape: Tomato Vines and Fireflies

Happy early 4th! Fourth? Forth. FARTH. Just kidding. We’re BACK. We’re home. And surprisingly, it feels really, really good. We didn’t know what to expect when we walked into our beloved little ranch house after a full month of being away. Of course it smelled stale, it was hot and sticky, and a few pepper […]

Monthly Mixtape: ROAD TRIIIIIIIP!

Bev at Tom's Town

No, this photo has nothing to do with a road trip, why do you ask? Truth is, I just like it! AND THAT IS RARE. I put it in Stories the other day, and a shocking number of people said, “Shame on you, Ma’am! Put that somewhere permanent!” Well, if I must. Even if it […]
