Favorite L.A. couple and good friends, Margaux and Max Wanger, live their lives with a focus on the best of things: each other and their two babes, world travel, and lazy Sundays. We are endlessly inspired by their art, their parenting mantras, and their good hearts. We sat down with Margaux and asked her all about finding home-away-from-home (in Italy, no less!) and embracing business and parenthood with gratitude! It’s a must-read.

Whitney Leigh Morris is a designer and new mother living on the Venice Beach Canals in Southern California with her husband, their two pups and new baby, West.
