I was driving down Route 17 South when I noticed a sign for a new pizza place in the Gap strip mall. I love pizza so I was kind of excited to try a new pizza place.
I took the kids to Mangiamo’s on a Friday night, our typical pizza night. The interior is really nice and they have a nice display of the different types of pizzas. They also have an extensive menu which includes specialty pizzas but also pasta, chicken, veal, and eggplant dinners. We ordered the Chicken Parmigiana pizza and mozzarella sticks.

Q: I spent my junior year in the south of France (Montpelier) and fell in love with French-style furniture (with everything French, but that's beside the point). Now, my husband and I are furnishing our first home and I would like to create a French provincial theme. He's not for it and says French furniture is too "effeminate." Au secours!
A: "Help!" In any language, that's what you need to bring your husband past his stereotypes.
