We are now: Portlandians

October 2013 has been a good month to us. Thank you October.

First off, our 6 month anniversary is in 2 days. Has it been that long? Well not yet. But it will be in 2 days. We've done a lot in the past 6 months. Robbie freelanced three times, we visited 9 states, lived in a tent for a week, and had just a few arguments. It's love.

But the real exciting this is that this good Dapper Dan Man here got a job at Wieden + Kennedy!!! He is an Art Director for Turbo Tax and Sony. He loves it. And now can't wait to do his taxes. 

SO THAT MEANS we are now RESIDENTS of Stumptown/Bridgetown/Beervana/P-Town/PORTLAND! Wahooo! Can you believe it? I can't. I feel like we're going to get up and move across the country, visiting America's wonders, and working in freelance. I'm a little (just a tiny-bit) sad that I wont be a Nomad. I liked that title. I'm still going to keep it.

We found our very own apartment on the NE side of town.

Wedding Invite: Nathan + Amber

(I love receiving any form of note, drawing, or sugar cookie in the mail... FYI. You can send me something now if you want.)

It feels real swell seeing printed invites. I think the colors turned out reeeeal nice, and Amber and Nathan picked to print on a nice paper. Thanks guys.

The tricky part of this invite was the Art Deco border, I'm happy with the way it turned out. 

Can't wait for the wedding.

Save the Date: McKenna + Jared

McKenna was one of my roommates a few years back and contacted me to design her invites. She showed me some invites she liked and I got really excited. They were all illustrated and had hand lettering. I've been wanting more opportunities to design invites with this look. YAY! So I'll be designing her Save the Dates (as you can see here), Wedding Invite, and Thank You Postcards.

I think I finally got it. 
And it feels nice.

These were some of the blog titles I considered:

There's a lot of potential in the last one...

Under Recunstruction

My bloggywoggy needs some beautifying. I once took this web design class where I was taught the language of the interwebs... but I never really learned it. Oops.

So. Beware.

I don't know what I'm going to do, but I WILL do something.

Our life is under construction. We find out real soon if we become Portlandians or not. I will let you know.

See ya later dude.
