Tomorrow would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday. A man of style and grace, he lived a life, especially in his last few years, that seemed very happily domestic. The concept of family and home shaped his work just as his music continues to shape the sound of music-filled homes around the world.

We found these images, one of a private moment at home and the rest of a super public moment of a kind of domesticity with purpose (the famous bed-in) that seem to really capture and celebrate his style and spirit.

Take a moment this weekend to play your favorite John Lennon song and help celebrate his life!
