Thanksgiving is Thursday.
It’s an oft over-looked holiday from the music perspective and what’s a holiday gathering without music?
Don’t you worry, I’ve curated the ultimate Thanksgiving playlist, sure to please everyone who’s helping you in the kitchen or eating at your table. It’s full of songs from The Beach Boys, Bing Crosby, Joni Mitchell, Old Crow Medicine Show, Norah Jones, Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong, and more.
Enjoy and take some time to reflect on all that you are thankful for this year. I promise, blessings abound.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
It’s Gonna Get You - Quadron
Whole Wide World – Mindy Gledhill
Is This Love - Bob Marley & The Wailers
If you know me, or have read my blog for even a few weeks, you understand that music is a huge part of my life. At Christmastime and the holidays? I’m even more consumed by music and the jolliness it brings out in me. It’s just so cheery and festive – how can you not love it?
Usually, I reserve Music Monday posts for a single song that’s currently my jam, but today, in the spirit of the season, I’m sharing with you my carefully curated Christmas playlist. It’s been 2 years in the making and I’m sure I’ll be adding to it throughout the season. The playlist is chock full of my favorite songs – from Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong and the Vince Guaraldi Trio to Sting, Paul Simon, Natalie Cole, Mariah Carey and even a couple of Hanson tunes – there’s sure to be music to fit everyone’s tastes.
Press play and enjoy!

Last Thursday, we won the lottery. Again. We got to attend the taping of Norah Jones at Moody Theater for Austin City Limits on PBS. She was absolutely charming and equal parts demure and witty.
Say Goodbye – Norah Jones
This Music Monday is very special to me.
Today marks our first wedding anniversary (I can’t believe it’s already here) and this is the song to which we had our first dance.
I remember that awkward moment of everyone staring at us while we danced like it was yesterday
Rest assured I’ll be reminiscing about October 15, 2011 all day today. I’m so incredibly lucky!
Make You Feel My Love – Adele
