I love August.  It’s my favorite month.  Not just because of my birthday, although that is a small contributing factor…  No, I love August because it’s when the heat finally starts to break in Nebraska.  If any of you live in the Midwest, you understand the complete relief of stepping outside and not feeling like you’re drowning in humidity.  Also this August is the premiere of my absolute favorite show: Project Runway.  I can’t even tell you how excited I got when I checked my Facebook as a break from work and saw the announcement at the top of my feed.  A countdown began immediately, and I remind everyone how many days are left before the premiere on the daily.  It’s 6 as of today, in case you were wondering.

I’ve created this playlist for you to listen to!  These are some of the songs I’ve been listening to on repeat lately, and I hope you love them as much as I do!  Some are a few years old, and some are newer, but I think they still meld together nicely 🙂
