Today I'm posting a list of songs that I've been loving lately, and hopefully they'll help you start your Tuesday off right. Maybe you'll even find a gem that you'll want to listen to over and over again.

1. Swing Low by Dust Bowl Revival - I just heard this song recently on our local community radio station and was taken by it right away. What a beautiful rendition of this old tune.

2. Nothing Without Love by Nate Ruess - HAVE YOU HEARD THIS SONG?? I mean, you probably have. It really moves me, though. I don't know, it just gets me. I love so many parts of it, including the lyrics, the rhythm, the piano at the beginning. A beautiful and epic love anthem. I've had it on repeat.

3 & 4. From The Ground Up and Oh Love by Ayla Nereo - I first heard about Ayla Nereo from a friend who showed "Oh Love" to me one summer night by the pool. I'm a sucker for piano and also for awesome babes creating their art. "Oh Love" is probably one of my favorite tunes of hers that I've heard, but then the other night I went to a local movie theater to watch a documentary called Occupy The Farm. Have you heard of it? It was wonderful and inspiring and if you have a chance to watch it, I recommend it. At the end, the song during the credits spoke to me, and lo and behold -- it was Ayla! "From The Ground Up" is that song. Here are both of them for you.

5. Little Moment by Luke Rathborne - I found out about this song because Luke Rathborne is my cousin, first of all. But second of all, this song was played on episode 7 of this season of Hart of Dixie! I'm not sure if you watch that show but I watched seasons 1-3 without stopping on Netflix last year. If you like really really girly things, this might be the show for you. Anyway, our family is super proud of Luke for selling his song to the big guys, but besides that, it's a beautiful song and it speaks to my heart. I love it so much.

6. Emmylou by First Aid Kit - An oldie but goodie! This song just so captures the spirit of The Bohemian Collective and I think I will love it forever. Love these girls. And this song.

I hope you love some of these as much as I do! As you can see I'm a sucker for girly love songs. But come on!? Why not??

If you have any beautiful songs you want to share, please post them on our Facebook page. I want to hear more!!

All the love,
