New Show: Chef's Table

Patrick and I are about half way through a fabulous new series on Netflix called Chef's Table.  It showcases different chefs from around the world, how they got started, their creative process, support system, and what makes them great.  The cinematography and showcasing of the different dishes is incredible. Even more than the food though the show's emphasis on hard work and creativity is inspiring. I'd highly recommend it! You can watch the trailer here

Happy Friday! Hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. It feels like summer came to an abrupt end here in Seattle with the rain but I'm looking forward to relaxing this weekend and celebrating my niece, Jae's, first birthday! 

Here are some links to get us started.

New Video...

The project that's taken over our summer is finally out! I'm thrilled to be able to share it! Co-directed by Jason, along with Ryan Lewis and Macklemore. It was a beast of a production, but tons of fun to be a part the video here!

Studio Update...

We've had our studio space since March and we're still not quite fully settled in. But we're very close! Amidst being all over the place for different projects, we've slowly been putting it together.

I do love that since we've taken the time to put things together we've ended up with some really unique pieces. Above, is a closeup of a set of vintage wooden lockers we picked up at District in Georgetown. Judging by the random things I've cleaned out of them, and the name card above, they seem to have belonged to Yellow Cab back when phone numbers started with words!

Here's a peek of the "living room" was a big goal of ours to make the space cozy and inviting. We want clients, artists, friends, everyone really, to feel at home. Can you spot my slippers in the photo above?  I like to wear them around the office while working!

Laura and Alex's Gatsby-Themed Wedding!

We had SUCH a fun weekend celebrating the marriage of my sister, Laura and her husband, Alex. As you might remember, they were married in January 2014 during the Grammy Awards in LA. It was an amazing experience but such a whirlwind and there were only a couple of their friends and family present. So they decided to throw a Gatsby-themed wedding celebration this weekend and said their vows in front of a larger crowd of loved ones. It was SOO fun and unique, those two definitely know how to throw an amazing soiree! We'll post more pictures later this week but here are a few from the always incredible JKOE that capture the beauty of the day.

Happy Friday! We're gearing up for a big weekend around here. A fun wedding and the final days of post production on a fun project that I'll be sharing next week :) Ok, on to the fun things!

This IRL love story sounds like a rom-com plot.

GAP Kids + Ellen, makes me wish I was 9 again.

Trapper Keepers, smelly markers and that Encyclopedia Britannica commercial that was burned into my brain to the point that I found myself thinking about it last week...90's nostalgia back to school supplies

I really need to go back to yoga...

Would You Stay in a Hostel with Your Kids?

The last time I stayed in a hostel was April of 2011 in Belfast, Ireland. We were living in Dublin at the time and traveled up to Belfast with my brother and some friends. We booked two rooms and my friend's husband was kind enough to switch with me so that us girls could have our own room and the boys bunked in together. The trouble was there was music blasting until 4am. When we checked out the next morning I looked Patrick in the eyes and said, "I will never stay in a hostel again." I was 27 years old at the time and decided that my hostels days were at an end.

These hostels may just make me change my mind though! All of these spots are family friendly and boast a lot of unique features that seem so fun for kids. Would you stay in one?

Cozy and family friendly this place is adorable...

Costa Verde 727 Fuselage, Costa Rica
Yes, this is a hostel in a plane. CRAZY!

Freehand Miami, Florida
I WILL stay here. This is the place that started my wild goose chase of family friendly hostels.
