Falling Slowly and finding Jane Austen

Dear F&N friends, 
We hope you find something fresh for your favorite Pinterest boards or a decor idea for a room that needs restyling or perhaps a Jane Austin quote that perfectly suits the card you plan to pen…..or a song you want to share with a friend. Whatever it might be, we thank you for spending these moments with us. We think of our posts as a magazine of sort…certainly longer than a lot of blogs, but we post fewer of them and we hope it’s something you can sit with for a while, or come back to when time allows. All the places we’ve travelled, all the homes we’ve styled…all the people we’ve loved are wrapped up into the posts we deliver to you. It’s the best way to do anything…wholeheartedly. 
With F&N affection,  
Jamie and Kristen

You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
~Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan. Have you not seen this? Can you fail to have understood my wishes? ~Jane Austen, Persuasion
