Here’s what I’ve been loving this week.

“It would be only one house out of thousands, but I wanted to prove it could be done, prove that this American vision of torment could be built back into a home.

I would work for everything that went into the house, because not everyone has access to those resources.” Inspiring.

Speaking of free, my local, public library subscribes to Overdrive and I am addicted. It’s so good, ya’ll.
