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...

Happy Halloween from Gomez & Morticia

Author: Cory I've been so damn excited for Halloween this year especially since we decided that we were going to go as Morticia & Gomez Addams. The Addams Family movies came out when Jade and I were both in grade school, right around that impressionable age where seeing them would really make a difference in how we see Halloween as adults. I freakin' loved them. I watched...

Modern Romance

A few mornings ago, Jade wanted to take a trip to Powells to pick up Aziz Ansari's new book, "Modern Romance." Just a few pages in, we couldn't help but start reminiscing about our own romance.

A Morning with the Roses

It has become a tradition of ours to set aside a bit of time to visit the roses every year. 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...

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...
