Farewell, Fanta

I worked my last day at Fantagraphics last week… which still seems nuts. Fanta has been a big part of my life for the past seven years. They gave me a job (twice), introduced me to lifelong friends, and bulked up my comics collection. I feel very lucky to have worked for the greatest comic […]

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 […]

Savannah

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

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 […]

Asheville

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 […]
