We would like take a minute and thank Those Who Dig and Pluck Magazine who recently wrote about When You Awake. First, check out this interview I did for Those Who Dig earlier this year, where I speak about my reasons for starting the blog,  whiskey and guilty pleasures (guess you didn’t know I secretly loved TLC and Boyz II Men, did you?). Then, head over to Pluck Magazine who just wrote a very kind writeup about us yesterday. Thank you!
