Monthly Mixtape: Thick Socks and Woolen Blankets

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Hey heeeeeeey, new yeaaaar! Happy 2023. We made it. I’m still waiting on my planner and a set of pretty pens to arrive, but I’ll pull through okay.

Monthly Mixtape: Bleached Dogwoods and Beach Towels / Bev Cooks

We’re now entering the summer mixtape playlist songs-in-a-row-on-an-internet-platform era! And this one is exactly that. Every month I get embarrassingly excited about these mixtapes, and I hope you do, too. I always try to pick songs that make you feel something.
