Schoolhouse Electric

Its been strange not writing much on Endlessly Enraptured lately. For almost a whole year it was a part of my daily life; writing down notes at the places we go, coming home and using those notes to create a narrative of the entire experience. It was therapeutic. I've always been told if you want to be a writer, you need to write all the...

March in Instagrams

               Photographs courtesy of Jade’s instagram, Cory’s instagram and our instagram. March was a roller coaster: lots of extreme highs and extreme lows. Spring arrived in Portland.  I started seeing a new doctor. We gave our 30 days notice and celebrated over a few cups of coffee. We couldn't resist indulging in a few sweet treats after seeing The Grand Budapest Hotel. I think April is going to be about recharging...

Ready for the Weekend

Cory is off picking up the keys to our new apartment as we speak! I still kind of can't believe we are moving, even as I sit here surrounded by boxes. Once he is back, we are thinking of going out for a celebratory brunch at Maurice, but we may have to make a pitstop at St. Honoré Boulangerie to pick up a bag of chouquettes. This weekend...

Ready for the Weekend

Its been a rough week around here with the construction next door waking us up way too early, our upstair neighbors clunking around incessantly, added tension from the  chain added to my braces (only a few more months to go!) and a visit to a new specialist to finally get all my health woes under control...

I want the space to be relatively well lit with decent natural light, or at least some unique and charming indoor lighting. That might be because I know what horrible lighting can do to a photo-shoot you are dying to come out perfectly....

A Sweet Sunday at St. Honoré Boulangerie

We have been wanting to start a Sunday tradition. We do go out on the weekend occasionally to get a cup of coffee or get a treat to take home, but it hasn't been an actual tradition. We have a dream of going to a wonderful place such as a bakery or patisserie to take in the ambiance and treat ourselves to something special while...

A Festive Break

"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave,...

A Giveaway with Woodblock Chocolate

November and December have to be our favorite months of the year. There is this wonderful feeling in the air brought about by the holidays. The chill brings us closer together while walking through town, the streets are lined with twinkly lights and my desire for chocolate triples. My birthday just so happens to be right in the middle of it all! In fact, I...
