For once, we are pausing to take a moment to recognize something that has absolutely nothing to do with furniture or design, but has such great importance to us. The 75 th anniversary of D-Day has made us very reflective of how fortunate we all are to have lived, for the most part, in a time of peace since the time of WWII. A few years ago, while at an antique market, Jamie and I came across a diary written by an RCAF Armourer someone responsible for loading bombs onto planes , who captured in great detail, his thoughts and experiences as a first-hand witness of the war. From a period of January 1, through to the end of the war in Europe in , he wrote about his friendships with his brothers-in-arms, his growing frustrations, the highs and the lows shared by everyone at the base, the small events that tell the personal story and the big events that changed the course of history for all. The diary includes detailed and exceptionally written first-hand accounts of the bombing of Britain, various bombing campaigns over Berlin, the wait for and eventual arrival of D-Day, the death of Hitler and the end of the war in Europe. Not only are his diaries filled with pictures of his friends, soldiers, bombers "Kites" and key news clippings, he was also a wartime tourist in the sense that he includes pictures of sites he saw on days off, the plays he went to and all that caught his interest while based in London. It is an authentic and primary view into what the world looked like back then and we are deeply grateful for the chance to have had a peek. They were lucky to have each other in such a time.

Buying Instagram followers helps your account get more visibility since Instagram has more than one billion users around the world, and it is one of the most popular social media platforms. There is no doubt that it is a highly preferred platform nowadays because it offers a very user-friendly interface. Although it was seen as a copy of the famous Snapchat back in the day, Instagram developed itself quickly. It offered so many features that people can't even stay away from using them. In addition, Instagram came up with so many creative features that caught Facebook's interest. That is the reason why they bought it in , and now it is a sub-company of Facebook. It was a clever investment, in fact. As we could see, Facebook is still managing to keep its popularity, with different platforms such as Instagram and WhatsApp.
