  • WE ARE…

    ... THE PERKES. We still consider ourselves newlyweds [we've been married for almost 5 years]. Our firstborn, Jace, is now 2 years old, and became a big brother when Sofia Rain joined our family in November 2012. We are from the East Coast [Luisa is from MA and Nate is from NH]. We are Bronco's Fans [We've lived in the Boise area for almost 5 years]. We are travelers. We are athletes and we are dancers. We are enthusiastic about food. We are spontaneous. We are addicted to the sun. We are in love.

    Most importantly... we are HAPPY. We are the Perkes.

Lisa Van Gemert - I came across this looking for cowboy party ideas (random, I know), and I was reading, I was thinking, oh, they have to be LDS. Then I got to the Army of Helaman (formidable), and I knew. What great inspiration in so many ways. Thank you for sharing.

Josh Perkes - Luisa and Nate,

I loved this post! You captured everything so beautifully and I’m really glad you didn’t say anything about Nate beating me in chess. :)

Love you guys!

Josh

Jen Perkes - Luisa,
You have so beautifully captured our week! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It was such a blessing to be with everyone as we got caught up on our lives, laughed, ate, played games and competitions, and had wild adventures. My favorite thing was sitting back and observing how much our sons and daughters and amazing grandchildren truly love each other and enjoy just being together. My joy is full!!
Hugs and luvs,

The Nesting Syndrome…

… I thought that it was a myth. But low and behold, as my pregnancy progressed and my sanity slowing disappeared along with my waistline, after my house was ‘in order’, I started just MAKING stuff. Now, Nate got me a sewing machine for Valentines Day last year [YAY!!] and I am SO proud to…

Bean Town = Home Sweet Home…

There’s nothing like returning to the home that bore my childhood. My birthday’s, 3-17, were all celebrated in the same kitchen, in the same house, on the same street… on ‘Day Street’ actually, where the sun never sets… #9 . It makes me happy that I have a niece and a nephew that are growing…

Oscar B. Morales - Hello Luisa, Jace and Nate,
Great Pictures!!!
Thank you for capturing the great times that you had in Boston. I love how we always end up eating no matter what we do and that we are so diverse in the foods that we eat, as I’ve said before, eating together is the universal language, everywhere on this world.
But, I love this country, where we have so much freedom and enjoy everything that is good; Food, sports, food again, beautiful boats, some more food, Red Sox Nations, hot dogs, Quincy Market, cannolo (plural for cannoli), family, did I mention food, to worship as we want and to bless our homes and family.
