The closer you look at anything, the more you learn about it. In fact, it’s the only way you truly can learn about something. And it’s a knowledge that can be applied to anything. Take, for example, your rugs. That fine Persian passed down from generation to generation. The stylishly modern statement piece tying your great room together.

Did you know that half of all pet poisonings involve human medicines? Many commonly used meds, both OTC and prescription, can be harmful or even fatal to your fur babies.

If you have been married or in a committed partnership longer than a minute, you know that coupledom isn’t all kisses and cuddles.

But for most of us who are in long-term relationships, it’s not enough to simply survive. We want our partnerships to thrive, and to do so requires intimacy.
