Here in Memphis we’e been flirting with fall. We’ll have a couple of crisp days and then it’s like they never happened because we return to the 80′s so quickly. After two rainy days in a row, we are about to have several perfect fall days. I’ve already switched out my closets, so I need these lower temps to stay. I love this picture above. Fall means so much to people. What does it mean to you? I’ve decorated and plan to enjoy all the season has to offer. It will be gone before we know it!

We’ve all fallen in love. Well, I’ve had two males cowardly tell me before that they don’t know how to love? Crazy liars. If you ask me the only thing close to as big as falling in love is falling in love with new music. It’s a similarly earth shattering / I’ve been reborn feeling. The more you hear the more you are convinced this is something a cut above just the one hot song you download. When it’s a whole portfolio of heart stealing music my heart dips.
This week it’s dipping for Small Black. The band has a new and second release out as of this past May. It’s lovely dream pop at its best, with moments of nice intensity. There is plenty of shine and sparkle to last you an entire evening, some even enter into the ballad realm, still plenty of sparkle with those as well.
Pay no mind to Pitchfork’s review, if you happen to run across it. The writer simply must have been in the middle of a bad day or writing reviews for the wrong genre.
Happy Friday. Feel free to celebrate my 30th birthday with me all weekend. The day of my birth is the 15th. I plan to listen to plenty of tunes, soak up the fall sunshine and enjoy a nice drink or two. Cheers to being alive!!!!!!
What an amazingly hilarious Halloween costume for little ladies and adults!! Saw this idea featuring Vogue editor Anna Wintour while anchoring this morning and couldn’t stop giggling. Then I realized I was about to read a story about the debt ceiling and straightened up right fast.

Mom and I loved this spot in Louisiana. What an adorable cottage. It was my first day back at work today after being off a week with my family. I got in at 10 last night and woke 2:45 am, so I’m in need of serious sleep time. What I really want to do is write about my trip!!!! I miss mom and dad so much. Soon!!!!
Hope the weather is as nice where you are on this Monday as it is here in Memphis.
Some tunes are season specific, like no Sade after Labor Day. I’m pretty strict with this as I’m very season sensitive. This last week has been a bit trying. I don’t want to let go of summer. It was that good. I started decorating my table to try and make the fall feelings start coming back. It’s just a slow start.
I’m thankful for music that works for both summer & fall, such as Kurt Vile’s newest Wakin on a pretty Daze. Turn it on and crank it up. Maybe with windows down!!!! That’s how I do it.
