  • 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.

Pops - Luisa-dearest: We LOVE your editing of the photos! And you have some different ones that we really treasure [like the new one of you kissing Jace]. It is fun to see your editing style and compare it to Nate’s–loving them both! You two are such a class act! WELL DONE!!!

Kelley - Oh Luisa! These are incredible! Were these on a self timer?! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

Jace’s Blessing…

A couple of Monday’s ago, on my Life Thru the Macro post on Nate’s blog, I talked about Jace’s blessing. As is the tradition at church, we presented Jace before the congregation and Nate gave him a name and a blessing. It was a beautiful experience. In that post, I spoke about my fears as…

Maui Wowee!!!

To say the least, this post has been a VERY long time in coming. It’s amazing how one trip can mess up the beautiful little routines that we had going on at our house. Jace would sleep about 12 hours every night and parenting seemed to be sort of easy. Our little vacay to Hawaii…
