    Hi Jess, I loved your cute home! Could I ask how you like your living room couch?Does it hold up well with time? I am in the market for a new couch and love the look of yours, but I’m nervous about buying a couch online.

    I haven’t followed you for very long, and I had no idea you were in Ann Arbor! I’m in the Lansing area and my hubby is from AA. Small world! I love how beautiful and relatable your house is.
