It’s August and I have Florida on my mind. Summertime songs take me away!
Going to the beach in Florida in August can be like the gates of hell if there is no ocean breeze, but when there is, and it hits you just right, it really is paradise. I have fond memories of going to the beach in the summer and playing in the sand and surf for hours. As an adult bringing kids to the beach, lounging on your beach chair (cold drink in hand) and hearing the waves come in while they make their own castles is parenting done right.
I made up a playlist of summertime songs. A good alternative mix with some slow tracks and few guilty pleasures (Don’t hate on JT). As always some classic tracks (Sing it Janis). Songs about the beach that you can listen to on Spotify online.
The weather is sunny here in the UK today (yes!) and so I’m going to put this spotify playlist on and dream of the beach.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! Any plans you are still trying to get done before school starts back up? Need some more ideas?
