Anthems

Recently my husband and I collaborated on creating a playlist for a road trip. I scanned through my music, the majority that I accumulated during my teen/college years. It's interesting how one's tastes changes over the years. My high school music is much too poppy for me now. My college music is too angst-y and... Continue Reading →
