Good morning! As you're reading this I am driving to Connecticut for my best friend's wedding. When she says "I do" on Saturday, I'll be standing right there next to her in a beautiful, purple dress.
Memorial Day weekend is one of my favorite times of year because it's usually the first weekend that the weather is nice enough for BBQs and the beach! Most people head out of town to the Cape, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, New Hampshire or Maine to make the most of the weather and the extra vacation day.
What do you need while driving to these sunny destinations? A road trip mix, but of course! Here are the three songs I am obsessed with right now and plan to blast at full volume with all my windows down.
"Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen
Mock if you must, but I cannot get enough of this song! I flip between all the radio stations in my car every time the song ends to see if it's playing on another channel.
"Brokenhearted" by Karmin
I have a special place in my heart for Karmin because their lead singer, Amy, used to be in a Boston wedding band called Kahootz that played at my cousin's wedding back in October 2010. The band was incredible and it's no surprise that Amy has skyrocketed to super stardom. Karmin is comprised of Amy and her fiance, Nick, who are both graduates of the Berklee College of Music right here in Beantown.
"Lights" by Ellie Goudling
Ok, I know this song is over a year old, but I am just now coming around to loving it. I play it while getting ready every morning to pump me up.
Now that you know what I'll be belting out as I whiz down the Mass Pike, I want to know: what do you have on your road trip playlist for this weekend?
