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.


Lately, reading has been a HUGE blessing to me. With an extremely mentally demanding job, I have been in dire need of an escape and a way to ‘wind’ down each day. On lunch breaks, I take a mental vacation and visit the distant lands of a wizarding world or the lands of the Greek Gods. I visit Ecuador with their Auca Indians or the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park. The characters become my friends and the stories become a part of my life, as if I’ve lived them myself.

I am SO grateful for good books and I try to follow the counsel: ‘Seek ye out of the best books, words of wisdom.’

I TRULY am grateful for a good read.

* Note: On the sidebar, I’ve been working on a project that has been ongoing for quite some time: a list of all the books I’ve ever read. It’s been a feat and it is one of the great accomplishments of my life.
