The other day I spent a couple of hours at my friends lovely apartment. She lives in the most charming space, completely drenched in light and character. Her apartment used to be a dormitory for a local college some eighty years ago before a family purchased it and began renting it out. We mostly talked about politics, babies and how we'll decorate her living room for the holidays while baking several batches of chocolate chip cookies and sipping on coffee. It was a perfect afternoon.
