Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Family Day + Porter Flea Market

This is one of those photo heavy posts! Are you ready to dive in? _DSC0196_1

Last Saturday was a perfect day. It had been several weeks since Jordan and I took a full day off together. Our work schedules generally allow for a free morning or afternoon, but rarely a full day without an agenda. #freelancelife

It was so nice.

Jordan and I spent the morning tidying our apartment, photographing a fashion post (I suppose we worked a little ;-) ) and reading poolside before my brother and his family arrived into town. Several months ago, we scheduled a lunch date as a nice pit stop for them as they passed through town. We met everyone at our favorite local BBQ joint and after lunch gave them a tour of our (squeaky clean) apartment.



^My skin had a freak out moment a few weeks ago, but it's recovering!



^ Oh, my heart!


Once Jason and his clan left town, Jordan and I headed to Porter Flea Summer Market. I had seen posters around town, but I didn't fully understand what made this flea market so special. Jordan and I are no strangers to flea markets (here, here and here) but Porter only sells products from local artisans: handmade jewelry, clothes, ceramics and housewares.

The courtyard was filled with food trucks and mobile stores, but most vendors lived inside the Track One Building. Jordan and I walked systematically, visiting each table and snatching business cards of vendors we would want to check out later. Our apartment is partly furnished/decorated from flea market and antique store finds. At this stage in life, our visits to markets are not to find a specific piece, but for pleasure. They are still a great place to find gifts!

We ended our evening, like many evenings of late, curled up on the couch eating dinner and watching a few episodes of Friends.

Like I said, a perfect day.




^ Paper & Clay was one of my favorite booths. I love the ombre effect on Brit's dishwares. Her pieces were simple, but beautiful.  There were many pieces I wanted to snatch up for myself, but instead I left with a gift for a friend.
