Seven years ago we started a conversation. It was good, really good, one of the best conversation I've ever had . Depending on who you ask you might get a slightly different version. No difference in truth, just little things, like duration of time. A snippet, Me"....then Alex asked me to ride on the handle bars of his bicycle to the next party. I politely declined and offered my telephone number instead. We said our goodbyes... an hour later, (an hour later) Alex shows up at the party, he seemed to have not saved my number, and happen to bike across town to come and get it again." Alex snippet"...I asked Emily to ride on the handle bars of my bike, she declined, so I asked for her number instead. I left with my friends, and realized (5 minutes after I left) I had not saved her number. I went back into the party, to re-save her number." See the difference? Hardly! Ok so I'll spare you all the gushy details about a love story written in the stars. I will say that seven years ago started our days of writing letters, telling secrets, sharing aspirations, sharing burritos...just sharing in general, making mixed tapes for each other, sneaking into swimming pools, swimming across rivers, flying across oceans, every love song reminds of you sort of thing. Anyways, seven years ago we started a conversation, and I've felt in love, and lucky ever since. Here's to a life time of continuing the conversation.

Well, well, well, what delightful surprise do we have in the backyard today? It's not a large spider, vagabond cat, dead possum, or even our next-door neighbor getting pushy about times we are not allowed to do laundry! It's, it's, our brand new (old parts), Rebranded Fixture...which I have independently dubbed "rebranded excitement" (see the title). An-y-ways. Some friends of ours, Ross & Bryan, have put their creativity, knack for woodworking, good taste, a keen sense of function (the list goes on and on...the 3R's... (yes from the 90's), gardening...etc) to work. They are the masterminds behind Rebranded Fixtures and quite frankly, I hope they "don't stop till they get enough" (by that I mean, I hope every-one of you..yes you, get's your one of a kind beautiful wine bottle enhanced, multi seasoned, comes in all sizes, custom if you'd like, beauty of a garden box). The boxes are affordable, functional, and make gardening accessible (not to mention mobile) if you live in an apartment like ours (or wherever). Go on now, get your Rebranded Fix(extremely intentional pause)ture here .

The scoop, the house is stunning, a New Orleans/ French themed beauty with vibrant colors, claw foot bath tubs, and built in nooks and crannies like you've never seen! The Breakfast was delicious, I'm talking creme brûlée french toast, mimosas, eggs, bacon, and grits (yes, grits). The hostess, oh the hostess was the sweetest thing since sliced bread (the sweet type), a kind woman who is like the long lost relative you've always wanted to spend the summer with (just a tad misty eyed upon our hugs goodbye... no biggie).
Spotted above are bits and pieces of time well spent...aka Wings Of Wonder (a butterfly sanctuary (which is sadly closing down shop in two weeks....get it while it's hot people), photos from inside/ outside the house, the Independence Ferry and the End of The Road thrift shop (located in Falls City, OR). Not pictured, rolling farm land, plenty of wineries (waved tasting fees for purchased wine bottles), Fall City falls, and plenty of other details worth an earful. Pack your bags, and head straight to the doors of MaMere's (you won't regret it).
