Anyone who knows me well knows that I am a music aficionado. So it seems only fitting that as I ease into growing another year older on October 22 that I would take the time to list out ten songs that sum up who I am or how I feel about life and love at the ripe young age of 37.

In no particular order here they are…enjoy! If you don’t know these songs or artists, check them out.
