Galentine’s Dinner on Thursday with my best girlfriends. We went to a delicious French restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn called Pates et Traditions and enjoyed a three course dinner of scallop and shrimp puffed pastries, salmon, and crepes with homemade chocolate sauce, strawberries and whipped cream.

Friday morning in Williamsburg. The light on the street and building was very pretty.

Happy Monday, everyone! If you have the day off, enjoy it! Tomorrow is my first day at Random House so I will be very busy preparing myself!

Ben Howard at Terminal 5

Monday night, I saw Ben Howard at Terminal 5 in NYC with some friends. Bottom line, he was amazing and everyone needs to go listen to his music right now, if you haven’t already. He is a crazy talented guitarist, has a beautiful voice, writes great lyrics, and was awesome live. The band he played with was just as talented and they created a fantastic concert experience. His music is currently on repeat on all of my devices…yes, I am slightly obsessed.

If you’ve never listened to him, you should definitely check out some songs on Youtube. I was going to try to give you a list of my favorites, but found myself writing down every single song on his album Every Kingdom. But I’m going to try really hard to give you a list of my top 5 favorites – ones I couldn’t live without. (Links to Youtube video)

Old Pine

Black Flies

Bones (I used the lyrics in this song on a photograph I took on the train)

Burgh Island

The Wolves

And because I love his lyrics so much, here are a few of my favorites:

“Hot sand on toes, cold sand in sleeping bags / I’ve come to know the friends around you / Are all you’ll always have / Smoke in my lungs, or the echoed stone / Careless and young, free as the birds that fly / With weightless souls now.” – Old Pine

“Give me shelter, or show me heart / Come on love, come on love. / Watch me fall apart, watch me fall apart.” – Only Love

“I saw a friend of mine the other day, / And he told me that my eyes were gleamin’. / Oh I said I had been away, and he knew, / Oh he knew the depths I was meanin’. / And it felt so good to see his face, / Or the comfort invested in my soul. / Oh to feel the warmth of a smile, / When he said “I’m happy to have you home.” – Keep Your Head Up

“Winter stole summer’s thrill / And the river’s cracked and cold” – Black Flies

20130212-093413.jpg

“And meet me there, bundles of flowers, / We wait through the hours of cold / Winter shall howl at the walls, / Tearing down doors of time.” – Promise

“Oh if you’re there / When the world comes to gather me in / Oh if you’re there / I will be blessed” – Blessed

This was a very difficult list to make. Please don’t ask me to pick my favorite Ben Howard songs ever again! I may or may not be buying tickets to see him again in six months…

Let me know what you think if you check out his music! 🙂
