When I think Plants and Coffee, I'm instantly reminded of my grandmother. She was one classy lady and she loved her houseplants and roses almost as much as her afternoon coffee. My grandmother always prescribed a robust cup of coffee for any ailment (kinda like Windex in My Big Fat Greek Wedding)! As a ritual, before cooking dinner my mom and grandmother would sit together and drink their afternoon coffee.

"I give them [Kendall and Kylie] a lot of stuff. Khloe and I used to live together for three years, and our garage was her closet. I had it made into a closet, the whole thing. So every time I'd leave the house, on my way out I would grab a bag. I'd steal everything of hers at the time. She had sweaters in her bedroom, so I'd always take her tops and sweaters. She's just always had the best stuff.” by pic-chic 60

My mom is 91 years old now, but through the years, when I was a kid, the best thing about Thanksgiving was the stuffing. Hers was the best I ever ate. Loaded with flavor and completely delicious. When I got married and started my own family, I made sure I had this recipe in my recipe box. I've used it all my life. by morecerv.

For animal people. Pass it on. When she was 3 years old, her owner and best friend died. Despite that tragic turn, she was in her prime — a buoyant, loving dog with her whole life ahead of her. Little did anyone know at the time that Diamond would spend the next five years at the West Virginia shelter. Now, she's a senior dog, her hopes of finding a real home dwindling with each day. by lynne

“Four years ago I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl who had a boyfriend. And I had to do the hardest thing I ever had to do, which was just to wait. Don’t get me wrong I flirted with her...For a really long time that’s all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl who I worked with, but I think, even then I knew, I was waiting for my wife.” by elaine
