Sing Out Louise

Today marks the one year anniversary of the passing of most amazing woman we've ever known, our mother, Louise Messina. A year ago we shared some of our favorite photos of her with you, and had an unexpected outpouring of support and kind words in return. We would like to send our sincerest thanks to all of you who sent us very personal, heartfelt, and comforting words to help us through.We can't begin to express how touched we were, and the amount of love we felt while reading these messages from you, our customers, most of whom have never even met us (in person). You are truly amazing.

So if we can ask one more thing of you, please hug your loved ones today, sing songs together, laugh at old times, and make a huge Italian meal big enough to invite over all of your neighbors like our Mom would have done! We present to you the original email we sent you one year ago with the photos you all seemed to love so much, and below that we threw in a few extras accompanied by just some of your wonderful comments...

Mighty from the outside looking in...

Jen captured this photo of Mighty that I just love. This is the guest room of our house that we should really share more photos of. A victorian built in 1885 that we live and work out of. We love it!
