Featured Blog: Where We Love is Home

Well hello there fabulous friends. We have a great feature for you today, so kick back and grab a glass, we're hanging with the most ahhh-mazing blogs in blog land.


Hi! My name is Joelle, and I'm a young wife from sometimes-sunny Southern California who's just trying to figure life out. I fill my time trying new recipes; exquisitely complicated things that either turn out to be the best thing you've ever tasted, or the worst. I'm a writer by nature and I have a thousand stories in my head that are just dying to be told. I have a little apartment that I try to decorate, and it's definitely a work in progress. My goal in life is to become a wine sophisticate, or an oenophile, if you will. The only thing I love more than shopping (and my husband, of course), is finding good deals while I'm shopping. Oh, and I have a strange fascination with proper etiquette and geography. 


My husband and I went wine tasting for our honeymoon, and on our very first stop, the second day of being married, I just happened to pick up a book with a cute cover while waiting to get our first tasting. It was called What Love Is, and I cried the moment I opened it.

Because it's about us. It's short; the subtitle says A Fable for Couples, so I'm going to give you the first few pages of the book.

Their first touch was at seventeen when the moon was high and her hair was soft and her skin was warm and her lips were full and her heart beat fast against his chest. 

As he looked at her looking at him he had never seen anything so beautiful...

And he thought, 

"Now I know what love is."

Another touch was at twenty-three when the rings were placed, and the sun was high and the church was bright and her gown was lace. 
As she looked at him looking at her, his eyes were moist and his voice was soft as he promised to be true forever...

And he thought, 

"Now I know what love is."






Please Head over and show some love. Enjoy the day!
