So much is happening this month. I go back to America for the first time in a year, I say goodbye to the family I’ve lived with and worked for for the past twelve months, Mabel (the little girl I watch) turned 2, one of my best friends in Australia is having a birthday as well… it’s just all happening!
My June playlist comes exclusively from female artists. That wasn’t my intention when I started putting it together – but that’s what came together!
My favorites this month are Wanna Be by Betty Who and Don’t Kill My Vibe by Sigrid. The little you think you’re so important to me, don’t you? hook on Don’t Kill My Vibe really gets me dancing in the car. Even Violet has been singing the “ooooh ohhs”- it is pretty cute! Her favorite song lately is Drive by Gretta Ray, which is great because it is probably one of my all time favorites. She refers to it as, “Laura, will you play ‘best thing in the worst way?'”
I just know this month is going to go by quickly, especially considering that I return to Brisbane from Oregon on July 6th! Two more weeks in Australia, then two weeks in America… and back I go! I’m really looking forward to coming back to Brisbane but I know this month is going to be a whirlwind of emotions. I’m hoping to get back to regular posting sooner rather than later but know that I am a bit behind at the moment due to all the insanity that is moving house, taking an international trip (to go home, no less!) and wrapping up my time as an au pair. I’d love to write a post about what it is like to say goodbye, so look out for that soon!
