The Story/Book-Steph and Nick

Nick and Stephanie Hammer are definitely the kind of people that I'd want to be friends with in real life. He's an architect and she's an artist, hence the address to their blog. As these pictures show, they are a very fun, bright and funny couple. I was just reading their Bucket List and wishing that we lived closer to them so we could hike the Narrows again in Zion National Park with them, and so that I could dress up and go to her "real tea party." They are way too cool to live so far away!

Thanks Steph and Nick, for being a part of The Story/Book.

The Story~
I have a hard time picking which books are my favorite. I get attached to one and claim that it's my ultimate favorite. Then, a while later, I read another book and claim that as my absolute favorite. What's a girl to do? Well, my favorites as of right now are some design books we picked up right before moving from Salt Lake. I love that both my husband and I mull through pages and pages of ideas and history for hours and never run out of interesting things to talk about.

The Book~
The NEW Big Book of Layouts. It's not your typical kind of reading with words and stories. What enthralls me is that I have the chance to imagine and concoct situations leading to how a certain designer created a specific piece. Each example is a story in and of itself, and I grow personally and isn't that what reading is all about? 

Other Recommendations~
Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen, Tuesdays with Morrie Mitch Albom, Twelfth Night William Shakespeare
