If there ever was a time for Unity…

I started this year feeling incredibly passionate about the presidential race, more so than I ever had in the past. Jade and I aren't really the go to a bustling rally or door to door campaigning type of people, but this year felt a little different.

It was a weird week. Mostly good, but weird. Cory got a new job (more on that later) and I've been busy trying to schedule out photography & illustration projects whilst in the midst of an awful migraine (fun!).

I'm fairly certain May will end up flying by even faster. The mild weather of spring is already fading into hot, sticky summer. We got to know our new neighborhood, perused Schoolhouse Electric Co., I attended a special Madewell event...

Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens

How beautiful it was to look out the window of our suite and gaze upon the gated entrance to Hyde Park. We had spent a few moments walking around Hyde Park Corner before tea a day or two before, but we really hadn't had the time to go deep into the park itself. Buttoning up our coats and slinging our cameras on, we started into the park...
