Heart of Glass(ware)

Some time ago, I had read about the awesomeness of Deck’s Glassware on Eartha Kitsch’s blog* and made a mental note to visit one day. That day finally came and Deck’s was our #1 destination as we rolled into Chattanooga. It is truly a gold mine for thrift diggers and dishware enthusiasts. When Chester, the […]

Carlton Daytrippers

A little bit ago at work, I’d spotted an ad for ‘Neat Pieces’ in Carlton, Georgia and kept it in mind when we visited Watson Mill Bridge Park since Carlton is so close. It is definitely worth the trip! Jimmy, the owner, has amassed a staggering amount of old books (history, war propaganda, vintage picture […]

Horror-ble People

This Halloween will be awesome but a little less awesome than usual since I’ll be celebrating so far from my Halloween soul mate, Kristy. We’ve decorated and dressed up together A LOT over the years. Here’s a li’l collection of almost all the costumes and seasonal geekery. (Still kicking myself for not getting a photo […]

Summery Summary

Woah! Where did the time go? Every summer seems to fly by faster than the last and this was an especially eventful one for me ‘n’ Dean. It feels like we just left our little apartment in Seattle yesterday. First, Dean and I hit our anniversary this past August! To celebrate seven years of happy […]

Summer has been treating us well. Lots of sunshine-y, bird-chirpy mornings, and the easy pace of a college town without students. Dean and I have been waiting until dusk to venture out when the Georgia heat is just right and you can see pops of fireflies. I’m working two jobs now, one at the public […]

Southern Living

Athens, Georgia has been our home for about two and a half weeks now. Little by little, we’re furnishing the apartment and I started a new job last week so things are goin’ well. Still, we’re homebodies and slow adapters. The most excitement we’ve seen so far is our ill-timed walk through a torrential thunder […]

East Coast Road Trip

May has been an incredible month for us. Our last week in Seattle was good (thank you, wonderful friends!) but it was also hard for me to do anything but worry about the big trip. Damnit, I always waste so much time worrying. Our move could not have gone smoother. First, we flew to my […]

Seattle City Guide

Dean and I left Seattle at the beginning of the week and closed a huge chapter of our lives. We’ll be back to visit, of course, but it was tough saying ‘goodbye’ to our wonderful friends and a city we’ve grown to love so much. I don’t believe in the Seattle Freeze, this is the […]
