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.

Long time, No Nothin’…

It’s really not that our lives have become less interesting, because they haven’t. Or maybe they have and I’m just in denial. I’ve missed my old friend, “the blog”. I’m sure Nate hasn’t really missed me obsessing over the what, where, when’s, why’s and how’s of posting. But I sure have missed the obsession. January…

Bree - Good job Luisa!! I've been trying to improve my sewing skills lately too!! Thanks for that recipe–those sound/look soooo yummy!!!

Aimee - I'm totally jealous! I just told Dane that the next big purchase I'd like would be a sewing machine! I'm impressed with that dress you made. My skills include sewing two pieces of cloth together… That's it! :)

Pappa Perkes - Luisa:

LOVE the blog; totally understand the sabbatical–we're in one too! Great dress. Can't wait to see Brooke in it.

And Nate's talent for flipping crepes behind his back is HILARIOUS!

Always love a peek into your fun lives!

Hugs and love,
