Vinyl Vednesday, Vol. 1-8

A few months ago, my boyfriend and I started a weekly tradition called Vinyl Vednesday. What can I say? I love catchy, alliterative names, and this was the best I could do! Anyway...each Wednesday, one of us selects a record to listen to and the other creates a cocktail inspired by said record. It's so easy to get caught up in the craziness of day-to-day life or fall into the same rut when it comes to relaxation (cough, TV, cough). While I still get plenty of TV time, this tradition serves as a nice reminder to put away the electronics and just live in the moment for awhile. Plus, it combines my love of music, craft cocktails and themes! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some of my Vinyl Vednesday coverage, but since it's always a highlight of my week, I thought I'd start sharing here on the blog.
