Johnny is a prankster to the core who loves his people fiercely. Everyone who knows him has a story of a time he pulled a fast one on them. He loves to think about the hard stuff in life and be outside as much as possible. He’s been in Oregon for three years but retains his Chicago loyalties (and accent). 

Allison is a Texas-born gal, the youngest of four siblings. She likes whales, celebrity gossip, rock climbing, popcorn, and taking pictures of people. Allison immigrated to Oregon two and a half years ago to finish a masters degree yet her inner city-girl remains strong.

Together, we are just two people who didn't mean to stay in Oregon this long. (Oops.) We met in grad school studying social justice and fell in love somewhere along the way. This is our journal & personal project. WELCOME!
