This summer has been bittersweet for me. I am having the most amazing time taking Hannah on adventures, but it also means my maternity leave is coming to a close. I went on and on and on about that yesterday. So my summer playlist is a fitting mix of lighthearted beach songs and obvious, maudlin fare (“All Good Things Come to an End” Nelly Furtado? Really? I’d forgotten you were in my iTunes, don’t do this to me right now).
