My Life's Mixtape!

My sister Kimberly recently posted her life's musical. I think music has always been a huge part of all our lives, and like smells for other people, I have made memories that are perfectly paired with certain songs. Here are just a few of those memories.

...and anything else of Kenny Loggins', Gloria Estefan's, or Celine Dion's

Handlebars - Flobots
Young Bride - Midlake
Great DJ - The Ting Tings

This list was hard to make, 'cause I had to leave out about 3,000 songs. I hope you enjoy/know at least one or two of the bands I posted about. The more recent ones are pretty obscure.

Music City, USA

I got to spend the week with this one,

this one,

this one,

these ones,

and these ones (I know I already put a picture of the baby, but...)!

It was a lot of fun being on "the other coast." I wish I was still there.

Too bad I wasn't there while this one was.

Thanks, mom and dad, for having us.
