Classic Movies for Valentine’s Day

Classic Movies for Valentine’s Day

One of the perks of living at West of Chestnut is having access to our many amenities, including the media room. With Valentine’s Day coming up, we’ve put together a list of classic movies you may want to screen to celebrate this romantic holiday. They are old, but being a classic means there is a reason they are still around. So check out these dramas and comedies this month. Of course if Valentine’s is a day you ignore, we’ve got options for that, too!

Fall Decor at Your West of Chestnut Apartment

Fall Decor at Your West of Chestnut Apartment

Autumn is upon us and that means cool, crisp mornings, warm afternoons, and evenings stealing upon us ever more quickly as the days fly by. The green of spring and summer is taken over by hues of red, brown, and orange — so why not embrace those colors and make them a part of decorating your West of Chestnut apartment for the autumn season. Pumpkins, gourds, pinecones, leaves, and Indian (also known as flint) corn lend themselves well to creating a harvest-home theme.

Frankly My Dear — Books and Characters that Stay with Us

Frankly My Dear — Books and Characters that Stay with Us

Have you ever thought of a friend you haven’t seen for awhile and found yourself wondering what they are doing now? And then laughed at yourself for forgetting that your friend is merely the character in the last book you read? Books that resonate within us can have that effect. The fact that we feel like we lose a friend when the book ends, ponder about what happens next, and want the author to write a sequel are all signs of a good storyteller.  In today’s post, we will share some books that, for many readers, have that “stay with you” quality. Reviews are from Goodreads.com.
