>Back in 2000, Mason Jennings wrote “Dr. King” as a tribute/dedication to Martin Luther King Jr on his album “Birds Flying Away.”

I think that today is a good time to take a step back and see where we are with our nation right now.  Several decades ago, many suffered and struggled through the civil rights movement. Now, I am not a history buff (and I’m not going to sit here and use big words to sound like I know what I’m talking about), but it’d be foolish to think that we weren’t going through our own civil rights movement today.  It’s a different generation and a different time — but there are people still struggling to be accepted / loved / treated as an equal today.

Take some time today to think how YOU can help make a CHANGE.

We all have dreams.

Let’s start making them a reality.

Today marks the big 5 year mark for Bret and I. Since meeting one another freshman year, we have grown older, wiser, and stronger with our relationship with each other. We also have acquired a dog (coolest. dog. ever) and an apartment.  Now, we stand side by side trying to deal with this complicated thing called “life” — but we’re doing it together.

Bret, this is my ode to you.  Songs have been a part of our relationship from the very start.  Several of our friends have many memories with us that directly relate to music whether it’s Dispatch’s “The General” or Benny Benassi’s “Satisfaction.” 

Today’s playlist has songs that have memories between you and I.  These songs include most of our personal favorites during freshman year while sharing headphones and studying, napping with a song on repeat, or the playlist we listened to while going to one another’s homes for the very first time to meet the parents (ahhh!).  🙂

I love you.  And this is for you.
