Seattle Center

My second (and last) day in Seattle began with a morning spent in the Pioneer Square/International District area and followed by an afternoon at the Seattle Center.

The Seattle Center is seventy-four acres and was originally built for the 1962 World Fair. It currently is comprised of the Museum of Pop Culture, the Memorial Stadium, Chihuly Glass and Gardens, the Space Needle, and the Key Arena. I spent the majority of my time at the Museum of Pop Culture to check out the Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, and Star Trek exhibits (amongst many others) and then made my way over to the Space Needle as the sun was setting.

To anyone who is visiting Seattle in the near future, I highly recommend that you check out this area as there is honestly just so much to do.

Name For You

 

I’m currently planning a trip back up to my second home–the Northwest–and “Name For You” is by far one of the highlights on the travel playlist that I am making for my trip.

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for The Shins, as they were my first ever concert. Their music is simply feel-good music, and I have truly never been in a bad mood while listening to them. This song echoes that feeling and is also just such a great song to have on while driving.

Needless to say, I honestly cannot wait to see what else they have in store for us and the March release of their new album “HEARTWORMS”.

City of Stars

I won’t lie to you–this song has been on repeat for a good while now. It is just such a beautiful, yet simple, piece of music that tends to have an old world feel to it, and I can’t get enough of it.

Though I’ve yet (keyword yet) to see La La Land, I can understand why this song and the movie itself have been nominated (and now received) so many awards.

A 1000 Times

 

Towards the end of 2016, I was introduced into a lot of good music.

One song that I’ve really been digging is “A 1000 Times” by Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam. It has honestly become one of my go-to driving songs for when I’m out and about or just coming home from work.

With the new year, I am definitely looking forward to discovering more good music.

What are y’all loving right now?

Million Reasons

 

For those of you who’ve followed me for a while know that I’m a fan of Lady Gaga. She is just so talented, and I love how she seems to truly have a good soul.

Speaking of talent, how amazing is this performance?!
