Monday Melodies Link-up #1

Hey y'all! 
So, SUPER sorry I missed Monday Melodies last week. It was just a really late Sunday and I was not feelin' the blogging vibe. Today is the first link-up opportunity, so I'd LOVE for you to link up any recent music-related posts (concert recaps, playlists, etc), at the bottom of this post. Like I said two weeks ago, my theme for this playlist is summer, so I've put together some of my favorite summer songs today. 


Knee Deep- The Zac Brown Band. Yes, this song is country as cowboy boots and horseback rides, and yes, I am a California girl through and through, but there's just something about this song that evokes summer and relaxation for me. 



Walking on Sunshine- Aly and AJ. This song is my happy place. It's my pump-up song, my happiness song, and my summer song. 

                                        


All Summer Long- Kid Rock. Besides the obvious title, this is just an all around fun song with good vibes that make me think of nights at the beach bonfire, playing a guitar and chilling with friends and family.


Life is A Highway- Rascal Flatts. Summer usually means at least one road trip for my family, and this is the perfect roadtrip song to sing to with the windows rolled down on the highway. Also this is in Cars which is like the best movie ever.

Rather Be- Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne. This may not have anything to do with summer, per se, but it's my current jam and it's summer, soooo? Plus its my blog and I do what I want.

In light of our upcoming family road trip to Crater Lake, I'm centering next week's playlist around my favorite road trip songs, and you're welcome to do the same, although you don't have to :)

                                             
OKAY now's the fun part you've all been waiting for. Link up your music related posts below!

xo, Hima

  20. hmm.. well it was snowed in when we went.. so we didn't get to do much hiking or exploring. Mainly drove around to different lookouts and took photos. I have a post on it if you want to see, but I'm sure you'll be able to do much more than we did if there isn't snow!
