We spent months making our moms bake cookies, day after day.
As they slaved over a hot oven, our crack scent-ologists hovered just behind, meticulously bottling every precious fume for this very moment.

Storenvy Staff Pick: All things Star Wars

This week’s Storenvy Staff Pick is brought to us by Community Support hero, Jessa Clark.

What’s the best thing about Star Wars? High on the long list has got to be that there’s something for everybody.

For me, my Star Wars love started when my dad took me to the theater to see them and I was introduced to the ways of the Force. Take a peek at these sweet finds, and whether you’re a mere padawan or a master Jedi there’s bound to be something you can’t do without.

My new gig! 

Sometimes when I can’t sleep, I arrange my apps chromatically.

Our biggest challenge moving back to San Francisco was the dread apartment hunt. Thankfully, we had a sublet arranged for about a month and half after we arrived from our moto-extravaganza, and we used most of that time on the search. 

The week before Christmas Amit and I found a tiny apartment in an excellent location. 

For the first 3 nights we slept on the floor. We finally got a mattress on the day before we left for a week to spend Christmas at home in Portland.

Now we have to fill the place with everything else. 

Yesterday (roadtrip moto-extravaganza day 2) we woke up in Nanuet, NY and headed westward. We spent most of the day making our way through the state of New Jersey, which is actually quite scenic.
It was clear and not too chilly and there were lots of other motorcyclists on the road. We accumulated at least 31 passing salutations from other bikes. People love really love the Ural. 
We made it all the way to the Pennsylvania border, which was actually the Delaware river. The bridge was a tiny, one-lane affair. 
Our destination was Larken Springs Farm, a beautiful bed and breakfast outside of tiny Hellertown, PA. If you ever happen to be making your way through this area, it it completely worth spending the night just to enjoy the breakfast in the morning. The proprietor, Ken, makes home made granola and jams, plus all sorts of other deliciousness. My favorite was apple caramel, Amit’s was the pear butter. 
We spent the night in the room attached to the one in the picture above (our sitting room, which was attached). Waking up to sun coming through the window and roosters was magical. 
Today (day 3), we spent the whole afternoon cruising the Pennsylvania country-side and just barely made it to the Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery in time for their last factory tour. It’s in the tiny town of Lititz. We found a dog-friendly inn right on the main street. 
Best things - spending the night in a 1886 farmhouse, enjoying the home made breakfast.
Worst things - soooo sore in the arms, shoulders and neck. Steering the Ural is like lifting weights. 
Tomorrow we’re hoping to make it all the way into Virginia!
