Good People + Good Music = Great Housewarming

The secret is (well, not that secret) to a happy home is to fill it with love and beauty and then enjoy it to the full extent. I feel our new home is like that, so my beautiful partner and I were happy to share it on Saturday night with good friends. Good people made for great company. Plus, there was good music. Well, I think there was because I devised the playlists. So, being the music nerd I am I decided to share my playlists with you.
Plus, I was fairly inebriated by night's end, so I don't remember hearing most of this.

It was definitely a good night...

    That's a hell of a great playlist Wayne. I love the inclusion of "Arms Like Boulders" by The War On Drugs as this is a current favorite that I cannot get out of my head!!!
