“We don’t even care that we’ve gained 5lbs each going home now.  Or that we, in a hypothetical way, both said we would sell our souls to own this house.  The fact that we’re both leaving fat and soulless, yet very happy means you’ve done a fantastic job.  Thanks for the stay!  And hospitality!” ~ Camille and Jenna
