Ever get the feeling that what used to seem right, doesn’t any longer? I know you have felt my pain. Take for example Eric’s days of bachelorhood.

More often than not, newlyweds are challenged to combine the likes/dislikes of both husband and wife. Fortunately it’s not one way or the highway and both Eric & I can usually come to terms on our home style choices. Coffee table in point!
