Palm Springs/Ace Hotel

This has been a strange year. Jade and I both have been down to California a few times this year for work projects and meetings, but not together. We have been busier than ever, getting opportunities to travel for work, but we still aren't exactly where we want to be when it comes to our careers. I guess that's just life. You're always searching to...

A Trip to Halloweentown

Author: Cory We love Halloween. Its been part of our holiday tradition to go and take photobooth strips at the Ace Hotel in downtown Portland; one for me, one for Jade, and one of us together. We've done it for the last 5 years. We don't usually go to parties. We don't go out trick or treating anymore. But we do make sure that we pick out...

London in an Instant

Author: Cory I think we're ready to just pick up & move to London. Granted this was only our second trip there, but sometimes that's all it takes to know.

Reverie

'Reverie is not a mind vacuum. It is rather the gift of an hour which knows the plenitude of the soul.' Gaston Bachelard From when we serendipitously ran into Anne and Cara one lovely afternoon. We drank coffee and played with cameras. It was basically the greatest. Here's hoping you find time this weekend for a bit of reverie...

June, July, August

I created a 26 before 27 list in celebration of my birthday and the year ahead. One of my favorite items on the list has been going out with Cory and getting a photo booth strip taken together (and sometimes separately). The ones we have taken this summer have been especially meaningful to me. I think it will be a tradition we continue even after this year is...

Coffee Break

I don't know how it happened, but I caught a springtime cold: sore throat, body aches, chills, waves of nausea. I'm guessing Cory brought home some germs from the high school he works at...
