Ageless Beauty

Well, here we are, October 29. The Eve Eve of Hallow's Eve.

Got a costume? You're ahead of me if so, but I've got a couple ideas rattling around up there, just have to execute them, haha. It's been a few years since the last time I dressed up! We'll see how she goes.

Today's show was a fun mix of melodies and tempos.

I gave away tickets to Xavier Rudd, so that was pretty great!

Without further adieu, here are the tracks from today's show. Some cool links in there tooooo!

Love that Sticks

So, here it is, almost the end of October.

Time is such a funny thing. We're always chasing it, or waiting for it to go faster. I just always find myself stepping back and saying "how is it almost the end of the day?!"

Haha, sorry for waxing poetic about how precious time is, but it's been top of mind lately.

I had a great time with yesterday's show, good mix of tunes.
