Puerto Vallarta

What can we say, last week was pretty great ! Not only did we spend 7 sunny, warm days in Puerto Vallarta, but we got to spend it with 25 of our best friends, journeying down to Mexico to attend and celebrate the wedding of our friends Matt and Kelsey. To say we had a good time would be a major understatement. After a hectic start to 2014 it was great to relax, catch up with each other, and really just enjoy our free time together. Adding to our experience, the resort we stayed at was absolutely amazing, and right up our alley. Dreams, Puerto Vallarta is nestled in the mountains just South of Old Puerto Vallarta. Situated on a private, 500 metre wide beach with 2 towers facing the West over the ocean, everyone had a beautiful ocean view to share. The food was delicious, the lush landscape was gorgeous, the staff was friendly and the vibe laid back. We couldn’t help but take way too many photos of everything we saw, and as geeky-designer-bonus, the typography and signage throughout the resort was thinly elegant, set in ceramic tiles that gave the resort an authentic touch. But enough of us rambling, let’s get to the pretty pictures! - Tyler + Jessie

Mexico, See You On The Beach

In less than 24 hours we’ll be sitting on a beach in Puerto, Vallarta with 20+ good friends. I’ve been dreaming about this trip for the past 75 days (literally, that’s when I started my countdown). In celebration of the trip, I’ve put together a mix that I plan on listening to while I sip on margaritas, and watch the waves crash along the beach. I couldn’t resist sharing it, and not hogging it to myself. So whether you’re going somewhere warm this weekend or just need to pretend that it’s a little warmer outside, here’s a little “Southern Comfort” from me to you. Happy Weekend friends, see you on the beach. - Jessie

Hecla Getaway

A couple of weeks ago we treated ourselves to a little weekend getaway to get refreshed and re-inspired. This winter has felt unbelievably long and cold, and we needed a bit of a pick-me-up. So what did we do? We headed to a winter resort, because that makes sense when you’re trying to escape winter (HA!). Seriously though, we had a great weekend of just taking it easy, sleeping in and exploring Hecla Island. Here is our trip in pictures:

Are you snow blind yet? Hopefully we’ll be back to Hecla Island in summer, when we can explore the marshes, swim in the lake and soak up the heat. Until then, stay ‘cool’ Hecla Island.  - Jessie

Concrete & Cloud

In late December we sat down with Concrete & Cloud, a new online community ‘for dreamers and doers’ to talk a little bit about our Work-Life Balance. What are we passionate about? What inspires our work? What makes us tick, and how do we manage to balance work and life without killing one another? If you’re interested in finding out our ‘not-so-secret’ secrets, then be sure to check out the interview right here or watch it below. Thanks to Meghan and Dave for asking us to contribute! - Tyler + Jessie
