Since we’ve been back home, it’s back to work! Scotty’s working way on his dissertation, I’m starting a new project. I’ve also been cooking a lot and will get around to posting about that soon.

So, I thought I’d ask you all for recommendations. What’s on your favorite “Happy” playlist? I would love any suggestions!

Just comment below with your favorite song, artist, music video – remember it needs to be happy!
