Have you met Erin? Her blog, Butter and Brass is the golden colored ticket to my heart. Somehow in this world of tumbrs and pinners and rebloggers, she blogs the very best and most under blogged things on the internet, but, yep there’s a but, she’s great at other things too. Like making fig and goat cheese crostinis and photographing them like she spent years working for Gourmet. Or pulling together a wardrobe of all items on sale (hells yeah).
For this week’s mix, I have a confession. In my normal world, I listen to the mixes I post before the post runs. Not once, but I listen to them multiple times. I enjoy doing this. It gives me a sense of the mix and a little background behind the mix maker. This week I haven’t listened to the mix. Since we moved, we’re still without an internet connection. And of course, while I was planning to write this post yesterday over lunch, my laptop started giving me the flashing the question mark folder. So I’m at the apple store, with a fixed computer and scamming on their wireless. Shameless, yep, that’s how I roll. I also want you to know how excited I am to download this mix and listen, because, like her blog, I’m sure it will be really good and make you want to head out to the lake, right about now.
