Are you a morning person? I am not – not even a little bit. But since my 9-5er is really a 7-4er I get up every morning at 4:45 am. To make the mornings a little less painful I have been putting together a playlist of songs to help ease me into the day. Something cheery, but mellow… I need something gentle to get me started. The mornings that I’ve woken up to my iPod blaring “we’ve got more bounce in California” are too hard on my heart. So here are a few that I’ve been listening to lately that I wanted to share with you. If you want to download them just change the “hxxp” to “http” in the address bar, and if you like them please buy them from the artist. Most of these songs contain the word “sunshine”. Sunshine in the morning helps too. Enjoy!

If you have any suggestions that I can add to my playlist please let me know!
ps – Once I’m on my way to work it’s a whole different playlist… much more Black Eyed Peas-ish.
