What To Listen To Now || MAY

On Friday we are headed out to the desert for our 5th annual Palm Springs weekend with some of our LA besties and as I sit here writing this, looking forward to listening to this playlist from Matt on repeat during the drive, I can’t help but feel all the feels.  Our Palm Springs weekend is a tradition we began as 4 newlywed couples with no kids that has turned into 8 adults, 5 toddlers, 1 baby in utero and a procession of SUVs filled with pack and plays, life jackets, and sippy cups.  There’s certainly a lot more diapers and a …
