Thankful Thursday #5

I am so thankful for music. This week I made a gentle classical music playlist, but a few new (to me) gems have appeared in my life in the past month, like You and Me by Rose Ave (lyric video below). I am a sucker for lyrics that speak to me. There is just something about the chorus in You...
