  • 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.

Our First Christmas Tree!!
The finished product!


It was the classic tree-decorating evening, like something from a movie. While we listened to Judy Garland Christmas, and had homemade white and milk chocolate chip cookies with Eggnog, we looked outside and it was WHITE everywhere. We enjoyed our first snowball fight of the season, and then got back to work on our tree. Never realized how expensive Christmas decorations are… now I truly appreciate the antique, home made ones that we’ve used at my home every year of my life. We decided to collect a little at a time and this year we took advantage of a ‘Buy 3 Boxes of Bulbs, Get the 4th Free’ special at Target. Since you can’t see them very well in the picture, they are golds, silvers, whites and browns!! We love CHRISTMAS!
