Life Lately

This is the last good week to admire the cherry and plum blossoms around Seattle. Those pretty, pink trees are shedding all over the city and we’ve even had some sunshine amidst the rain. I love this time of year. My birthday is the first day of spring and I turned 29 this year. Friends […]

Scarecrow Video

There could not be a more impressive and wonderful video store than Scarecrow. I read they’ve collected about 120,000 titles but even a fat figure like that seems low when you see their mammoth, wide-ranging selection. I hate to think of this store ever closing so when the owners announced they were struggling, I started […]


Omigod, it’s no wonder Savannah is nicknamed the Hostess City of the South. We were completely charmed. I’ll never get over the spooky spanish moss or beautiful historic buildings- that stuff just takes my breath away. This was the last stop on our road trip and the sweetest spot we could’ve ended with. Colonial Park […]


Athens felt like a perfect town to us. Southern and friendly with a walkable core, a fabulous comics shop, and too many eateries for us to get through in two days. I’m lousy at tactful announcements but… we’ve decided to move there! In a nutshell: our savings’ll go a little further and we’ll be closer […]


We kicked off vacation in Asheville, North Carolina- a very cool mountain town. James, Dean, and I checked this one out together as a potential city to live in. In the end, we didn’t think it was the right spot but it has so many things we love! Good beer, plenty of vegetarian restaurants, and […]

Mountain Town Cats

We’re back from our road trip through the Southeast. It was one of the best weeks of our lives. :) I still haven’t had a chance to look through all our pictures but I wanted to post these. Ran into this tough-looking trio after a long day exploring Asheville, about five minutes before nighttime really […]

Vegan Pizza Party: The Classic

This is supposed to be the year I learned to make delicious pizza without Daiya and mock meat but, eh, it’s cold and my brain is working at half speed. Need cheesy, bread-y pie. Minimal thinking. Makes two (generous!) personal-pan pizzas. The crust: (This is a Kitchenaid recipe but you don’t need a stand mixer) […]

Hello 2014!

(I got this rainbow pencil from Jen, my Secret Fanta Santa. It makes everything I write super fun!) 1. Go On More Dates: Heheh. Just to clarify, I mean go on more dates with my husband, not a bunch of randos. Dean and I only went on two dates in 2013 which seems kinda lame. […]

2013 Goal Recap

This past January, I made a list of 11 goals I hoped to complete throughout the year. I got about 6.5 out of 11. Not great but I’m happy with what I accomplished. 1. Buy less plastic: Check! More specifically, my goal was to cut back on buying new, disposable plastic. Here are some small […]
