Happy day after 4th of July to my American readers!
In my humble opinion, there are a few things that can make or break a great get together:
1. Lawn Games: I am obsessed with Ladderball and Bags, and some good ole fashioned competition can do wonders for getting people to mix and mingle.
5. Good music: If you have Amazon Prime and haven’t taken advantage of their new Prime Music you are cheating yourself out of the best (in my humble opinion) ‘free’ music streamer out there. Unlike Spotify or Pandora, there are no ads (so many high fives to this), unlimited skips, and you can select the exact song you want to play – not just a radio station with similar songs based on the one you want to hear, and you can download songs from the Prime Music catalog to your personal device for offline playback for those times when you dont have an internet connection!!! Other great things? The music they select and play for you continues to get better as you give them feedback on each song with a thumbs up or thumbs down. There are over a million songs to choose from and add to any personalized playlist you want to create, or you can listen to any of the hundreds of pre-made playlists Amazon offers as well.
