Sometimes I wonder if I am the only person who has albums specifically important to me that I listen to more during the fall. I’ve had this conversation with a decent amount of friends and family and I’m usually the only one who specifically categorizes my music into seasons.

engaged!

Even though I love making playlists at the start of each new season, I think that there’s something extra special about crafting the perfect fall playlist. I know for me personally, there have been albums released in the fall over the years that are very important to me and have become quintessential fall albums (I’m thinking about doing a post on this – if you’re into it, let me know).
