Music Monday


M U S I C  M O N D A Y

The weekend flew by and I might have enjoyed it a little too much. I’ve been leaving the office more often these days and taking walks around the neighborhood down to the beach. I come home, stretch and practice yoga for as long as I can, it’s becoming an addiction, both the walks and the yoga. Knowing this is going to be a very busy week and the chances or taking my walks are slim to none was making me anxious yesterday. Clearly, I needed to do something about it, my first through was moving my office around and reorganizing but I was too tired for that so I went with the second option, making a new mix for myself. Below is what I came up with. Have a beautiful week.

02. Another – Seekae
