It’s been awhile since my last post and a lot has changed since then. I feel like a new person, with a new perspective on life. This past month has been one of the most challenging I’ve gone through. I’ve learned a lot about myself and still have a lot more to figure out. But …

Jenn: 2 Skirts, 1 Fabric

August 04, 2013

Get To Know Us

The Best of Both started in 2012 as a blog of a boy and a girl with a wide variety of interests, from fashion and video games to biochemistry and computer science. The blog was a medium to challenge each other to be creative, share their ideas + perspectives, and capture their adventures.

A couple of years later, life happened – they got engaged, he moved to San Francisco, she moved to Toronto, and they got married in Vancouver somewhere in between. After months of traveling back + forth, he moved to Toronto, where she stayed up late listening to Counterstrike strats and he unwillingly participated in Saturday morning cleaning. Fast forward, they had many more adventures, got a puppy named Simcoe (the name of the street of their Toronto home), and shipped all of their things across the country (i.e. his board games + collectibles, her textbooks + shoes).
