2020 in Revue (Whew)

Hindsight's 2020, right?

Reviewing 2020 feels like looking back on seven years.

Despite everything, 2020 had some incredible bright spots. I got to stay home with Minna until she was 11 months old. I started a new job that I love. Quincy's hour-plus-long commute evaporated into WFH quarantine. Our kids started a lovely new daycare and are thriving. We connected with our neighbors in incredibly meaningful ways.

I'm not sure all of this is reflected in my Year in Revue mix, but I hope it shows the joy of toddler dance parties and the pain of missing far-flung family; the quiet reflection that solitude affords and the screaming stress of overlapping responsibilities. It was a year of baby cuddles and election struggles. It was a year of deepening relationships. It was a year of growth.

So here it is: All of the songs I fell in love with in 2020. I hope you enjoy.

If you'd like an actual CD in the mail, this year's model includes a stick of Palo Santo to aid in your energy cleansing, meditation, or to just blow the stink off this year. Your call.

Here's to continuing to grow in 2021.
