Some Favorite Music Revisited

Last week we honored the sixth birthday of Maria's farm Country Kitchen with a couple of old favorites from the kitchen.

Today, I'd like to bring it back to music. But instead of reposting my favorite music blogs in their entirety, I've put together playlists of all the songs mentioned in these posts and added them to my Spotify profile. This way, instead of simply reading about why I love these songs, you can feel the love yourself through the power of music...
