Today marks the middle of the AP testing craze, and everything seems to be happening at once. Recently there's been AP testing, the end of the school year approaching, the state track meet, two proms, Dallas for my cousin's wedding, the Arkansas Scholastic Press Association Conference, and a million other things.

I've felt my best in months because of spring taking over and all of this going on, but I'm so ready for summer and unstructured days. Here are some songs for anticipating those times:

Juicy by Radiation City (the band I saw in Portland! check them out!)

10,000 Emerald Pools by Borns (ready to see them with the Lumineers in October!)

Space Song by Beach House (if you want to feel like you're in a dream)

Turn to Sand by Musique Le Pop (for dancing in the car on a bright day)

Neighborhood #4 (7 Kettles) by Arcade Fire

Flesh Without Blood by Grimes (completely obsessed with this song as of late)

Cool Party by Mal Blum (really digging this song, sometimes it makes me cry a lil tho)

No Love Like Yours by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes (their new album is so dynamic & cool)

Lovers in the Parking Lot by Solange (a true anthem)

Swingin Party by the Replacements (so summery, I love Lorde's cover as well)

it's not legible due to my excitement, but I won runner up for Newspaper Writer of the Year at Arkansas' High School Journalism convention!

when in Dallas, I got to meet up with the lovely Jen of Modern Ensemble. she was so sweet & gave me a ton of tips on blogging

prom #1 with my pretty cell group girls

Braums means so much to me

this book has been taking over my life lately; it's about the wives of modernism & their genius that was so often dismissed 

sunny days call for iced lattes at the new Arsagas

the best parts of track meets are taking pictures of it

Fayetteville is so magical!

prom #2 (to see more)

much love,
