ANDREA + EMILY | ABOUT US: We met on La Rambla in Barcelona, though we only realized it a year later. We thought we’d only first met a few months earlier at a college meeting. Then the conversation took a turn – WAIT! THAT WAS YOU? WE MET IN BARCELONA?!?! Isn’t Barcelona a much more rad beginning than a college meeting? A decade later, we’re still at it.
ANDREA | ABOUT ME: I love sitting with a cup of coffee and checking out the latest online magazine, or popping onto a favorite blog for a quick break and dose of inspiration, or feeling compelled to share my blog ‘finds’ with friends (who am I kidding, compelled to share them with Emily 99% of the time). Having gained so much enjoyment from this online world, I thought I’d give it a go and contribute something myself. Other fun gems: I seriously ♥ exploring the world and am motivated to make sure others are getting out there and doing the same. Brian is my husband; Mo is my son; and Kiwi is my dog daughter. I’m 100% good ole Portuguese, but I was born in the US and call Ballard, Washington my hometown. And I love to celebrate life through creative pursuits – home decorating, party planning, gift making, ukulele playing – many of which I’ll share here on Our Little Gems. firstname.lastname@example.org
EMILY | ABOUT ME: I’m so glad that Andrea turned me on to blog reading. My husband had tried to convince me there was great info out there but all I heard was “tech stuff” and it went out the other ear. I happened to be stuck on bedrest when Andrea forwarded me her list of weekly/daily reads and I think the whole day was shot-good thing I didn’t have a thing to do but cook that baby inside! I look forward to being held accountable to finish projects and share ideas with you. Other fun gems: Sid is my husband; Pip is our daughter; and Lance & Cheeto are our cats! We love to travel and were even lucky enough to spend a couple years living in London (pre-Pip)! We’re thrilled to be living close to our dearest family & friends again in the Seattle area in our project home! We’ve got a lot of projects going on around the house + others that I’ll come up with as we share them with you. email@example.com
