Fleet Foxes

Last week, LG posted an entry on her blog with some great music she’s currently enjoying. I was really drawn in by the Fleet Foxes’ song White Winter Hymnal, so I sought out their self-titled album.

On the way home after buying our new bed, Morah and I stopped at Bed Bath & Beyond to buy king-sized sheets. We had already discussed what we wanted, and on an earlier trip, Morah had scoped them out.
