We're not perfect, we laugh too hard, we're waay too loud and we make complete fools out of ourselves, and a little too close for comfort. Our smiles are genuine and we make our drinks too strong but somehow we know that being together is what's going to make us last forever. by AislingH

I was browsing through some photos from our trip to Rome and Tuscany in 2011 when it got me thinking about some of the incredibly delicious food we ate at a Michelin rated restaurant in Vagliagli, Tuscany. (La Taverna di Vagliagli). The memories inspired me to make something Italian and I settled on eggplant involtini – “little bundles”. This recipe serves 2 as a light meal, or as part of multi course meal for 4. by flora

Formal Dining Room Turned Home Office, We decided to turn our underused formal dining room into a home office. We combined new furniture & decor with some thrift store finds that we made-over ourselves. We are really happy with the overall design & storage we have now! Most of the items are from Home Goods/TJ Maxx, Target, IKEA, Michaels, & thrift stores. by erika

“And that's why books are never going to die. It's impossible. It's the only time we really go into the mind of a stranger, and we find our common humanity doing this. So the book doesn't only belong to the writer, it belongs to the reader as well, and then together you make it what it is.” ― Paul Auster, photo uncredited by kaylabryant5444
