Nate & Luisa bio picture
  • 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.

Friday Night Date…

You know you are an old married couple when your date entails shopping at R.C. Willey and World Market for furniture. We for sure had fun though!! Here are some of our favorite finds for the night!

The biggest Chaise lounge I’ve ever seen in my life!
Nate’s Favorite.
I’m still a little concerned though. We’d have to be REALLY cool to pull off something SO bold.
I like the coffee table though.

We got distracted by the massage chairs… and ended up occupying them for about 1/2 an hour! If the picture is a little fuzzy, it’s because the chair was karate chopping my shoulders, as I was taking this shot.

I couldn’t help playing dress up with all the international props at World Market, the interior decorators paradise! This was my Audrey Hepburn impersonation. See any similarity? I wish. I absolutely adore her!!!

Mike and Ariane - So true…we like to go to Ikea and pretend to play house in their mock room set ups! :-)

Ken & Jen - You know you have settled nicely into domesticity when your Friday Night Date consists of furniture shopping and dreaming of decorating your new house. I can’t tell you how many dates like that Mom and I have enjoyed! We used to have “visitation rights” on certain nice pieces of furniture that we could not afford at the time [some of which we have since adopted].

I like the shape and size of the chaise. Also, Nathan’s lipstick red leather couch is quite the find.

And Luisa, my dear, Audrey has nothing over you!

Janelle - Audrey is my idol! Love love love
