Soundtrack 2014: The Year That Went By Too Fast

An annual end of year tradition for me is to create a playlist, or soundtrack if you will, describing my life over the course of the past year using songs I discovered within that time frame.

Here is the Soundtrack to 2014 . . . click here for the playlist on YouTube
(Never has a year of my life gone by so quickly. I spent the year hosting and attending fabulous events, exploring and loving the city I live in more than I thought possible, and entering a new decade of life. More than ever this year taught me that the older we get, the happier we are, the faster it all goes by - running 5K's became my way of slowing life down a bit, disconnecting to reconnect, and enjoying the healthy young body God has blessed me with. I can barely remember the new songs I discovered, but here are a few that stood out the most!)
