♫ monument (kasbo remix) by mutemath ♫

thoughts: Kygo meets Odesza. The upbeat tropical house style of Kygo mixed with the percussions and beats of Odesza. Currently trending on Hype Machine as the #1 song on the “Popular” list right now. How have I not heard Kasbo before?!

lyrics:

there’s a daylight going under/ there’s a new spark to discover/ and you know we’re not getting any younger/ so remember, this is our time

I wanna drive an open road/ can we go out tonight/ anything goes/ let’s make a monument for our love, our love/ our love, our love/ let’s make a monument for our love, our love/ our love, our love

there’s a memory around the corner/ there’s an angel on our shoulders/ to remind us life is far from over/ so remember, this is our time

I wanna drive an open road/ can we go out tonight/ anything goes

visited my best friend, Savannah (IG: @savandwich) in Indonesia. She had just finished a Fulbright Scholarship to teach English in Indonesia, so we were celebrating her finishing her grant. Our trip marked one year since we had seen each other and one year since we graduated. We motorbiked 1.5 hours to see this beauty–the water really is that turquoise. It reminded me of the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland, but with way better weather and a breathtakingly beautiful view. cropped-13320706_10154345004076614_1964294363382882046_o.jpg
