Actually, The Three of Us

As you’ve no doubt already surmised, we’re a couple literary nerds who were drawn to each other’s bookish proclivities. As a matter of fact, we met as masters students in London in 2003. We got married in 2007 and now live happily in Portland, Oregon with our pride-and-joy, Dahlia.

Here we are at Dahlia’s fourth birthday party. She insisted on a chocolate skull cake with rainbow frosting, which pretty much sums up her aesthetic sensibility.
