I Heart These Posters, and U Will 2.

I stumbled across The Small Stakes site a while back and since then I've been dreaming about covering my walls with these flippin' gorgeous posters.

Soundtrack to 08.

Putting it mildly, 2008 was not especially kind to me. Long spells of no work and serious medical issues with my younger sister made '08 a year I'd like to blot out and do over again. It wasn't all bad, mind you, because there were lessons learned and sweet moments that only come with walks through a valley.

Here's my collection of songs I kept on repeat during various seasons of this past year. Most of them were released a long while ago and very few, if any, would mark me as a hip or trendy sort of person. But I like them and that's all that matters.

Blue Ridge Mountains - Fleet Foxes
I Adore You - Melpo Mene
I Cried Like a Silly Boy - Devotchka
Lovers in Japan / Reign of Love - Coldplay
Sarah - Ray LaMontagne
Hickory Wind - Gram Parsons
Hospital Beds - Cold War Kids
Sex on Fire - Kings of Leon
Many Shades of Black - The Raconteurs
Tupelo Honey - Van Morrison
Starlight - Muse
Satellite of Love - Lou Reed
Feathers and Down - The Cardigans
La Vie en Rose - Edith Piaf
Shot to the Stars - Whitley
