Howdy doody tooty fruity!

(What a way to start an intro, huh? I promise I didn't make that up by the way).

I'm here with my July 2020 Monthly Faves—a little late, my apologies. As I write some of this, I am in the car on my way back from a trip Thomas and I took to Missouri to visit some of our best friends who just moved down there. Time for writing has been somewhat non-existent.

Anyway, I think I've got some fun faves for this month, so let's dive right in. I hope you enjoy!

1. TV Show: The Vampire Diaries

Just like last month, our favorite show was The Vampire Diaries. In June it was split between TVD and SpongeBob (which I had started watching distractedly for light entertainment), but in July it was straight vampire binge-ing.

It's become almost a nightly ritual for us: we get home (or finish what we were working on), turn on TVD, and watch enough episodes until I pass out. Then Thomas usually berates me for falling asleep on the couch and convinces my sleepy self to come up to bed with him.

I'm just happy he likes it as much as I do! It's fun to share that same level of enthusiasm with someone. We've gotten through four seasons in the last month or so—pretty good, huh?!

2. Song: "July" by Noah Cyrus ft. Leon Bridges

There were two songs I listened to on repeat during the month of July, and ironically, the first one is called "July" by Noah Cyrus ft. Leon Bridges.

It's a quiet song with a lot of raw emotion. It's got a catchy melody and even has some whistling in it. I also love that it's a duet (of course, typical me). One of my favorite lines is when Leon Bridges sings:

🎵 Cause I keep fightin' all the ways / I let you down so I can stay 🎵

Or, sung by Noah Cyrus to the same melody:

🎵 Cause you remind me every day / I'm not enough but I still stay 🎵

My only complaint is that it's too short; it IS only 2.5 minutes, but it's also one of those songs that seems to end before it even begins, which is a sign of how good it is.
