what really matters.

jacks + singing these lyrics:

Hey, my friend
It seems your eyes are troubled
Care to share your time with me
Would you say you're feeling low and so
A good idea would be to get it off of your mind

See, you and me
Have a better time than most can dream
Have it better than the best
And so can pull on through
Whatever tears at us
Whatever holds us down
And if nothing can be done
We'll make the Best of What's Around

Turns out not where but who you're with
That really matters
That really matters
And hurts not much when you're around
When you're around

-DMB, Best of What's Around

one + one = ...

we are sisters-in-law living in different area codes.
this blog is a place for us to share two things that equal something special.
sometimes the words will tell a story on their own.
sometimes the words will tell a story through a picture.
sometimes the words will tell a story through more words.


we are excited you are here to share it with us.
