November Playlist

Working from home, the best motivation for me is a good playlist. Warning: this playlist doesn’t really have any rhyme or reason besides being great music. Here’s what I’m listening to this month:

November Playlist

Next to You by Tyler Hilton

Fellow OTH fans, Chris Keller’s got some skills. “What age am I turning to finally be knowing I know nothing to be true?”

Love Will Be Enough for Us by Dave Barnes

I love love love this song. It makes me miss the KY/TN area and want to run away. And also have kids, so I should probably stop listening. “You and me, baby, and the daffodils/Kids growing up in the rolling hills/And love will be enough for us”

Twenty-somethings by Judah & the Lion

Aw, millennial angst. Gotta love it. “Where in the world are we going with all our dreams?”

Made Alive by Citizens

I love this song. We’ve been singing it during Sunday morning at church, and the lyrics are just so solid. I get fired up every time it plays. “You have bought me back with the riches of your amazing grace and relentless love”

Taylor Swift’s Cover of Riptide by Vance Joy

I didn’t include all of 1989 on this list, which I have listening the heck out of, but I also love this cover of Riptide maybe even more than I love the original. Such an odd song, but I just keep listening.

Twenty-Three Places 10 Year Anniversary Commentary with Matt Wertz, Dave Barnes, Ed Cash

I don’t know why I started listening to this commentary, but it is hilarious and super cool insight into the song writing and producing process, which is always really interesting to me. I spent a whole afternoon working and listening to the commentary in the background, and laughed out loud more than once.

What songs can you not get enough of this month?


November Goals


I can’t believe it’s here. 2013 has been a big year, from marriage to internship to graduation.

I’m linking up with The Tiny Twig to think over what I want to accomplish this month.


1. Have an amazing Thanksgiving. Chris’s job change makes it a little difficult to plan, since we have no idea what his schedule will be. We are hoping for at least a few days off so I can see my family. However, even if we can’t, I’m hoping my first time cooking Thanksgiving dinner will go well, and at least be a fun and relaxing time.

2. Do the dishes every day. Because, goodness, I just feel better when they’re done.

3. Read a book. A good one.

4.  Find/make cheap Christmas decorations. So thankful for my Horton and Brown decorations!

5.  Plan a fun and unique date night with Chris. Because what’s better than throwing leaves in comfy clothes with my cute husband?

6.  Keep a gratitude journal. Because sometimes I get too caught up in the bad to look at the good. And because Ann Voskamp says so.


What are your goals for the month? I’d love to hear them!
