Inside The Tuileries, Outside The Louvre

Just as the sun was starting to set, we finished our walk along the Seine and made it to The Tuileries just before the closed. And by just before they closed, I mean we walked in and not three minutes later, whistles were blown and officers asked people to clear out. As our day in Paris came to a close, we couldn't resist wandering by...

A Morning Stroll Through Paris

I'd be remiss if I didn't say a special thank you to Xtabay Vintage for lending me the most incredible little, black dress to traipse around the streets of Paris in....

The W Paris – Opera & Dinner at Arola

We arrived in Paris from London at the Paris Gare du Nord railway station. It was a little frazzling getting off the train and and walking through a sea of tired, aggressive travelers to transfer our pounds into euros (which obviously we should have just done before we left).

From London to Paris

I know it has been quite some time since our travels abroad. Real life took over, as it tends to do, and we never had the chance to talk in depth about Paris. We shared some polaroids and black and white film shots, but I hope you don't mind if we share more details now. As our time in London came to a close, we...

We like to wait till after the Rose Festival when the crowds have died out, that way, the expansive gardens feel as though they belong just to us. The unseasonably warm weather this year has caused many of the beautiful blooms to wither before their...

June in Instagrams

          Photographs courtesy of Jade’s instagram, Cory’s instagram and our instagram. Oh June, you crazy son of a gun, you. Gone, before it even started. I have a feeling that will be a running theme this summer. There are a few moments I will treasure: ice cream for breakfast with my husband in celebration of him getting into his Master's Program, breaking in my new flats on relaxed morning strolls, writing...

Ready for the Weekend

So, I'm not sure if you know this, but I've had braces on my teeth since January 2013. My parents both have deep fears of the doctor and the dentist so they didn't take my brother and I as often as they probably should have. I've had to have my tonsils removed, my wisdom teeth removed and my braces put on, all in my adult...

Ready for the Weekend

Right now, Salt & Straw is featuring flavors based on classic cocktails as part of a collaboration with Portland's top bartenders. We devoured the Strawberry and Verbena Pimm's Cup and the Rhubarb and Saffron in Champagne. I can't wait to go try the rest. Our friend Solanah has started a new blog, American Threads, in search of quality, American made clothing. She was the one who...
