Do you ever have those moments when you stumble upon something and can’t help but think you’ve struck gold? You want to simultaneously share the find with everyone you know and keep it hidden away so that you can keep the treasure for yourself. working for The Bright Side Project is full of such moments for me, friends. It’s a fine line. Truth be told, however, my sense of balance is intact and even sways a bit heavy on the sharing side of the spectrum. I mean, how could I keep such goodies away from you lovelies.

Mike and Lea Pino are the amazing duo behind Casa Pino, a design and textile collaboration that brings such a unique and fresh perspective to the market. The Pinos are just plain oozing style and a great aesthetic and the marriage of these two (as well as their literal marriage) is a match made in heaven. Not only are the graphics interesting and bold, the craftsmanship is impeccable. They also donate 10% of all their proceeds to childrens’ charities because they believe in spreading the love. Yes, friends. This is what the balance is about. Spreading the love. Let Casa Pino add some love to your world.

Casa Pino is giving away one 20 x 20 throw down-filled throw pillow (in choice of fabric) to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Thursday, May 29th.
Please visit Casa Pino and tell us: What is the greatest thing you have ever done for love?

    My parents divorced before my senior year of high school.  During the school year, my dad lost his job because of his place of employment closing down.  Another company really wanted him, but it would require relocating several hours away.  He reluctantly accepted, as it was a fantastic opportunity, though it was heartbreaking to leave home.  Since I was going off to college in the fall, I had several offers from friends and family members to live with them so I could stay in my hometown and have one last summer home with my friends before we all dispersed.  I didn’t want my dad to be alone though, so staying behind really wasn’t an option.  Two weeks after I graduated, we hit the road.  

    A lot has changed since then.  My parents got remarried.  I moved out, got married, had a kid.  My dad is still my best friend though.  It was hard to leave home, but I don’t regret it for one moment.

    Said goodbye; we loved each other but were no longer in love. We now live separate lives and have found what makes each of us happy. It was traumatic and it hurt, but it was for the best.

    The greatest thing I have ever done for love is work on me so that I can give my husband and kids what they need. It can be tough to face your shortcomings, but only by facing them can you improve them.

    Not give up.  20 yrs with 9 moves, 11 emergency room visits, 3 surgeries, a business, taxes, insurance, legal issues, money issues, communication issues, parenting issues, parent issues, ISSUE issues, good decisions that turned out poorly, bad decisions that led to hurt feelings, unspoken expectations, shared expectations unmet…and all of it has been worth it. Dealing with all of this without giving up, in the name of love, means that he deals with all of this too, along with all that is me, and the reward is priceless despite how hard it is.

    We overcame thousands of miles of distance and time as we spent more than 3 years in a long distance relationship. Once, we were unable to even speak for 6 weeks as I worked in a very remote area of the world. We wrote each other notes in a notebook to get through that time in which we could not communicate. Each of us set an alarm for a certain agreed-upon time of day so we knew that – worlds away from each other – we were thinking of one another at that exact second! It was magical.

    I’ve got some of the worst commitment issues known to man when it comes to relationships. Thinking about marriage and anything more than 4 weeks actually has given me anxiety attacks. The best thing I’ve done for love is actually admit it and seek help. I’ve lost some great guys and if it takes a couple regular sessions with a so called professional I’m a do it.

    To put my body and my life on the alter of motherhood. I have 3 wild, amazing boys (3 under 4), and I love them so much. Sometimes it’s hard to sacrifice the things I want (sleep! a career, time to myself, more pie), but in this season of my life, I’m dedicating all I am and have to them. My body is their origin, their playground, and their nourishment (in the case of the baby), and I would do it all again.

    The greatest thing I have ever done for love…
    I realized that I never felt true love until very recently. My parents divorced when I was 3 and I have grown up in a very poisonous home. It was impossible for me to understand until I moved 300 miles away and started noticing how other families worked. The greatest thing I did for love was to allow myself to be loved. I put myself in a situation where I was surrounded by people who cared about me, friends, teachers, peers, and even my most loving boyfriend. Now I am able to think of myself and can work on loving who I am!

    I was working at a very unfulfilling and draining job where my dream seemed very far from the miserable reality I was facing everyday. One day I decided to choose love instead.
    After years of dreaming about going to my dream place (Turkey), a country where I didn’t know anybody, didn’t know the language, had no idea how I was going to realize my dream of living there, I finally put my foot down and simply decided to pack and go. 
     There I was, all alone fighting for my dream, in a strange but at the same time familiar place, not a single person I knew, no plans, and the whole world to be discovered. It was a life of magic and love, and a dream come true.

    I married my love despite my family being totally against it! And I don’t regret a moment. 🙂

    I don’t have a big, dramatic story for this one. I moved to Columbus from Washington DC for grad school right after college. I ADORED DC and was so eager to move back as soon as my two years were done. Over the course of those two years, I met my now-husband (as these things seem to happen when one vows to oneself) and everything changed. We’ve built a truly lovely life for ourselves here and just welcomed our first son into the world two weeks ago. I wouldn’t alter the course of our story at all.

    Greatest thing I have done for love is to follow his heart as my own and he does the same. To know my dreams are not the only ones in play to live support and encourage through the mess. sacrifice time even when it feels like there’s no end and to enjoy the little moments when coffee dates are all you can afford .

    My husband gave up a life back home with every friend, family, and familiar thing around him to move across the country with me so I could pursue my dreams. His love for me is astounding.

    I found myself outside the confines of my relationship.   I realized that being with another can enhance my own life and that I don’t have to be so absorbed with another to lose sight of who I am.

    The greatest thing I have done for love is to truly open myself up to it, let go and fully trust another person.

    I said yes when my husband asked me out, even though I didn’t want to go out with him. I thought he was a loser.

    I always read the Bright Side questions to my elementary aged daughter and we answer them together.   This question caused my daughter to turn to me and ask how I got her dad to love me.  It makes me laugh, and the only thing I could say was: I asked him to have coffee and he liked me just the way I was.  So, I guess my most honest answer is: nothing.  The greatest thing I’ve done for the love I’ve gotten is nothing at all.  That’s what amazes me.

    The greatest thing I’ve ever done for love, I’ve done twice so far. That is bringing 2 girls into this world.
    It is an amazing and loved filled journey, the labour, while waiting to meet this small person who is a piece of me and a piece of the man I love. And then holding them for the first time. Oh my!
