Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

This weekend Mike and I played the part of a couple of suburban yuppies, wandering back and forth between Crate & Barrel and Macy’s in search for the perfect set of china to add to our wedding registry. It is difficult to build a home that does not exist. Matching the colors and styles of […]
