One day not too long ago..2 Australian mamas were sitting on a back deck, sipping wine.. and talking up all the oxygen available.. when the conversation turned to life lessons.. and what they thought were the ones that certainly and without doubt needed to be learned. The two teenage daughters of the 2 mamas were, in turn, amazed, amused, and repulsed, by the words of wisdom tumbling forth from the mamas' mouths. These are, in no particular order, those words.

Learn the difference between "your" and "you're". Always use them in the correct manner. (This mistake drives your mother nuts and she will judge people who dont understand the difference. sorry 'bout that.)

Respect your parent's friends, and the parents of your friends. Call them Mr and Mrs or Ms until invited to do otherwise.

Recycle all that you can.

Understand that even the most in love couples will fight. If your parents are breaking up.. we promise you will be the first to know. Arguments, misunderstandings and disagreements are all part of any long term relationship.

Breaking up is hard to do.. but not as hard as living with someone you no longer love or respect.

The jury is out on staying together for the sake of the kids.

Vintage linen tea towels are lovely.
