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.

You are the Gobble of my Turkey…

I’ve never really understood the ‘apple of my eye’ phrase, so I decided to throw a similar nonsensical one out there, hence, my title! I LOVE this time of year. The holidays make the bitter, cold winters bareable. My mind goes back to a childhood memory: My mom was passing around a small jar, and in my hand are five kernels of corn and as the jar goes around, we each say things we were thankful for, placing a kernel in as we do trying to fill it up.

Mom, big Kudos to you for reminding us what Thanksgiving is all about. So THIS Turkey Day, each post, each day will be a little kernel of corn.


The biggest blessing of my life just happens to be the love of my life as well. So before I begin to blubber, Thank you Natey, for making my life as richly blessed as it is. I am eternally grateful that you are mine.

Ken and Jen Perkes - What a great idea, Luisa: THE GRATEFUL COUNTDOWN!!! That is one of your many divine attributes–your gratitude . . . and love!

Let me just add that I am surely grateful to have such a wonderful daughter!


P.S. Do we have any photos of Nate WITHOUT a camera in his hand? : – )
