Best Birthday Ever Playlist

(If you want to post this article on social media, use this link:

Taking a little break from the more serious posts this week because it’s my birthday, I’m on vacation and it’s the last week of August. Now might be a good reminder for you to take a mini-break, too if you already haven’t, and this playlist will help you get started. I am posting my latest birthday playlist partially due to the requests I’ve had for more of these and partially based on the fact that I am actually celebrating my birthday with my best friend who flew in for the occasion as we speak. In fact, I’m likely two drinks in and full of sheet cake at this very moment…

We are also concluding our 4-day burger crawl through Washington, D.C, so stay tuned for that post where I promise to give you all of the savory details on the restaurants we hit up every day. If you live in D.C. or will be planning a visit soon, you will want to have this valuable intel on where to find the very best hamburger in the nation’s capital so look out for that.
