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...

It is owned by the brilliant folks who first opened Insomnia Coffee, two family friendly coffee houses where they welcome live music, displays of...

Notting Hill and Portobello Road

For years, I had avoided watching the movie Notting Hill. I'm a grump that way. But Jade kept asking me to watch it with her and finally I gave in. Now we've watched it countless times together. It's a ridiculously charming story about a average English bloke who falls in love with a super famous American movie star and all the quandaries they face to...

A Sweet Sunday at Little t Baker in Union Way

I'm finding more and more as I get older that I have a particular taste in places I like to hang out. 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....

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...
