For the Love of Friday

For the Love of Friday- Top Down

My whole life (well, as long as I can remember) I had always wanted a VW convertible.  When I got out of graduate school and got a job, one of the first things I did was go out and buy one.  I have never regretted it.  I particularly enjoy having a convertible this time of year when the weather is warm but still mild enough that I don’t end up stuck to my seat by the time I get to my destination.  There is nothing like driving with the top down and wind in my face while cranking up the music when one of my favorite driving songs comes on.  It always helps me to feel free and forget about the stress of my day and all of the millions of little things on my “to do” list.  Some songs make me want to drive faster and some songs make me want to slow down enough so that I can steal glances at the clouds and the sky.

Here is a playlist of songs that just sound better when the top or windows are down and the wind is blowing your hair into tangles.  If you have trouble viewing/listening to it on your computer, make sure to hit refresh.  These playlists can be tricky.

    Such a cute post! Ya know, I’ve never been in the bug with the top down. I think we should go for a drive one beautiful Saturday or Sunday. Or at least take a drive to Toast 🙂 I love driving to Jack Johnson. On many days in Boone, i would take a drive out to the parkway. Sometimes alone, sometimes with friends. I could drive for an hour or more just listening to ol Jack. Such a great getaway. I also quite enjoy listening to Sam Cooke on a good drive.

    Love this post. And I love you and your cute little bug. I would say some of my favorite driving to the lake music with the windows down music includes but not limited to– Paul Simon- Phoenix– Sara Barielles. Wowza. My music taste is pretty much all over the place. 🙂

    Megs when I saw you spin away in yours after BNO dinner I knew I’d love you even more. My first car that I purchased on my own was back in 2005… a brand new, butter cream, VW with a tan top… it was my pride and joy! 🙂 I sold it when JT and I went down to the one car, but miss it everyday. That little yellow bug of yours fits your personality so well! It’s adorable! XO
