Creating Wonder with Blurb Books

This post is in collaboration with Blurb Books I work a lot with digital content, which means I don't often get to have physical pieces of my work. Almost all my photography is digital, save for maybe instant film, so sometimes I feel like I am missing out on being able to thumb through my work to admire it or pull it out to show others...

29 Years Worth Celebrating

My mother and father are your classic sentimental parents. Every year on my birthday they tell the same stories, without fail. My dad will show me old pictures (you know, ones I hate but he treasures) & laugh as he tells stories about the silly pranks he used to pull on me. My mom will wax poetic about the floral wallpaper that lined every inch...

Télescope Café

Télescope Café was first brought to our attention through Alice's post. That lovely lady knows about coffee so we were thrilled to find out that Télescope was only a few minutes walk from where we were staying. Our only regret is that we only had one morning to enjoy Télescope's delicious coffee and croissants...

Dapper & Wise

On a rather unusually sunny afternoon in late January we had our first visit to Dapper & Wise. They opened their doors just a short time ago and are now roasting beans and serving up hot cups everyday of the week, except Sundays. It is owned by the brilliant folks who first opened Insomnia Coffee, two family friendly coffee houses where they welcome live music, displays of...

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,...

Heart Roasters on Southwest 12th Avenue

We try to go out to a few new places around town each week. That is not to say we do that every week. It's easy to get stuck in the familiar and comfortable places that we usually go, especially when they are just so convenient. Since moving into our neighborhood in Northwest Portland we have been sticking to places predominantly around the Northwest quadrant....

Something Sweet

Here's hoping you get to share a little something sweet with someone you love today. Cory and I are pretty spoiled living right down the street from one of the best bakeries in town (you remember those morning buns). We still can't help but daydream about the lovely treats we are going to discovery on our trip. Happy Sunday everyone...

Did Someone Say Morning Buns?

I've noticed over the past few days we've shared a few of our favorite places in our new neighborhood, including Salt & Straw and Sterling Coffee Roasters. I thought we would continue that theme today by sharing one of the best pastries we've had at Ken's Artisan Bakery. I mentioned the other day on instagram, how walking over to Ken's has started to become a...

31/52

A little his and hers' treats to share with you today. He opted for the chocolate chip cookie and latte while I decided to try the blackberry macaron and macchiato (0f course we didn't mind sharing with one another). Ken's is literally down the street from our home. It's quite dangerous for the waistline...
