MUSIC OF THE MOMENT AND SOME CLASSICS
When at home I just love having background music. Depending on mood, time of day or entertaining. There is so much amazing artists old and new that I ﬁnd myself just changing it up when I feel the desire. The best is rediscovering artists from the past! My other love when alone are podcasts which I will do a special blog on. Here are some of my current music favorites, some classic and some new. I know when you ﬁlter thru this list I am for sure dating myself! I must say this has been so much fun putting together for you and me too!!!!
