It’s the first workday after New Year’s, 2012 is still wearing diapers and it’s Monday so I’ll be easy on you. I’ve put together a lil’ Monday morning soundtrack. Sit back, read, listen and relish ;D

Do you have a favorite Monday morning tune? Is it something loud with a catchy rhythm? Or soft and quiet? Feel free to leave a comment and let me know!
Hope you had a good start into your first week of 2012 : )
