A Summer Dance Party Mix.

As a gift to you on this Summer solstice, I've posted my next mix a wee bit early. You see, a few days ago, Danyelle posted this picture on Instagram of her little nugget Audrey during a mid-day dance party. I pretty much think this picture is the best thing ever, and I felt inspired to create a mix filled with nothing but songs with dance-able beats. Not annoying songs that parents can't wait to change, but ones that everyone will enjoy. The ones that make me want to snap my fingers, clap my hands, and shake, shake, shake. I recycled some of my favorite tunes from the past few years and mixed them with some new ones. It's a happy bunch of tunes.

My hope is that families all over will be turning the music up and grooving with each other on these warm Summer days.

Happy Summer!
