ATL Thrillist.

Awesome shoutout over on the Thrillst in ATL the other week.

It makes me so pumped when folks notice us in places that you think they wouldn't. I mean, I read the Thrillist every day, so I'd think they would. But, you know. It's like that hot girl in class actually knowing your name...

And I married that girl.

Sweet Peach

Pamela over at Sweet Peach Blog wrote up a nice piece on us a few weeks back. She swung by the party in Atlanta and said hi and it was so pleasant of a meeting, even if it was a real short one. But it's those little introductions that turn out to be the ones that are the best.

Go give her some eyes. She's got some really great content, and the look of her site is just about as great as they come.

Apartment Therapy.

We've been trying to make sure we have a date night once a week since we got married.

Garden & Gun.

Eight months ago, when we started Old Try, I said to Marianna “Well, if we get into Garden & Gun, we must be doing something right.”

As of this windy Saturday morning, we're on the top left of the homepage.

Now, I think this is a great opportunity to look towards the heavens, point skyward, then slap my chest while I scream aloud.

Because, you see, I actually accomplished a goal. 

It wasn't without...

A few weeks back I was puttering around the internet, and stumbled on Ampersand Vintage Modern.

Now, anything with an Ampersand is fine by me. (Side note, a buddy of mine out on the West Coast has an ampersand blog).

At any rate, these folks go searching for some of the finest, simplest old vintage goods, then sell them in their online shop. The coolest part is that they live over in Somerville....
