I can hardly believe that we are inching towards summer! What a treat this time of the year is, before the heat and humidity roll in and the mosquitos start biting our ankles in the frenzy they always do. But before all of that, there are the first watermelons and buttery sweet corn and fuss-free family bbq’s outside, the best right?

To celebrate late spring, this beautiful but short-lived time, here’s a little collection of songs I have put together for you from an album I made called Backyard Picnic on Spotify. We love listening to this kind of jazzy French music outdoors pretending we are laying around on a park somewhere near the fourth in Paris, the kids running around with a board of stinky cheeses to our right, endless rosé to our left. Ahhh. And if you like Amelié or Wes Anderson films or the 1920’s bets are you’ll dig it. Enjoy, m’dears!


  • Jessie - Love this time of year! We eat outdoors almost every night and there is just something so refreshing about that. Last night I made a grilled corn+kale+tomato+feta+pepita salad and miso honey butter chicken legs and off we went with our trusty basket to the park 🍃🌽🍅🐓🍃 ☺️

    Just added your playlist to my rotation! We have similar music souls ☺️ Love those jazzy old-timey tunes. Forever and ever.

    Hope you’re doing well, friend! Much love and happy weekending ❤️🍻ReplyCancel
