What I’ve Been Spotifying

Does anyone still make mix CDs?  When the husband and I were first dating, he used to make them for me all the time, and I’ve been feeling nostalgic for them lately.  Of course, CDs feel sort of obsolete these days, particularly now that I’ve discovered Spotify.  So, in honor of my mix CD nostalgia, I give to you:

Click the picture to get to the songs (you’ll need Spotify to listen):
