Life's a Mixtape: Long December

**Life's a Mixtape is where life and music meet. Each mixtape is artfully crafted by C, and then shared by me. See the previous one here.

While December is full of holiday cheer, it's also full of end-of-year melancholy. For this month's Life's a Mixtape mix, we wanted to share the more melancholic and nostalgic feeling that comes with the end of a year... memories of long-lost loves, hopes of what is yet to come, apologies for what never did, and a promise of continuing on next to the one you love.

1/ bourbon // 2/ satchel // 3/ scarf // 4/ roasted chicken pot pie // 5/ fireplace // 6/ tea cup

The long, dark, cold December month is cozy, boozy and full of moments of deep comfort. I hope you enjoy this mixtape as much as I have.
