How have you been spending time this year? As many of us have been nesting at home and spending quality time with our closest friends and family in more intimate settings, the simple yet important parts of life have become more apparent. We’re getting back to basics with this issue of VIE, too. Take a peek inside gorgeous abodes, get tips and recipes to make your fall house parties or holiday gatherings simply wonderful, and consider some thoughtful ways to reach out to those you love during these trying times. We’re all in this together!
