a music and lifestyle blog


Welcome to With Wildflowers! My name is Eden and this is my music and lifestyle blog inspired by homemade recipes, a curiosity for travel, my favorite musicians and personal growth. I’m 23 years old, a year out of college, and venturing into a new chapter of my life.

I live in Southern California with my boyfriend Michael, and our rescue dog, where I like to cook recipes that dirty too many dishes in the kitchen (then fight over who has to clean them), find new ways to style my ever growing (hoarder status) closet, and explore new places near and far.

I love capturing memories and looking back over old ones as I work with my family archiving and digitizing my family’s history and collection of photographs. I am lucky enough to spend time with my loved ones on a daily basis and even though my grandma likes to remind me I’m living in sin, I’m still exploring a new relationship with my faith.

With Wildflowers is a creative outlet dedicated to creating open, honest, and interesting content for readers to enjoy. A space where I feel free to share my experiences and opinions in an engaging environment and hope to expand on my passion for writing as an English and Communications Major from University of San Diego.

Summer Playlist Week 10: Tom Petty, Pink Floyd & The Grateful Dead

Summer Playlist Week 10: Tom Petty, Pink Floyd & The Grateful Dead

Labor Day is on Monday which means summer is officially over and so is my With Wildflowers Summer playlist series. I hope everyone has enjoyed each week’s additions so far and are ready for some more awesome tunes. To go out with a bang, I am saving some of my favorite songs for last. These 10 tracks round out my 100 songs for Summer 2017 and they are up on Spotify as well as below. I will definitely be playing this on the beach come Monday to soak up every last bit of summer sun before transitioning into the Fall. More playlist will still be coming to With Wildflowers, but for now enjoy week 10 of the With Wildflowers Summer playlist.
