We are bffs with an opinion on just about everything. A typical conversations can jump seamlessly from the debt ceiling to our favorite Mary Kate and Ashley movie.* We’re both trying to figure out how to be adults and how we can get a job doing what we really want to do. We imagine we aren’t the only ones in this position so we thought we’d make our ramblings public and voila, “But First, Coffee” was born.
Lover of fort building, avocados, filibusters, and defending whimsy. She can often be found debating the geo-cultural location of her home state or asking people to go eat tacos with her. Her greatest fear is being stranded with nothing to read, her second greatest fear is that there exist catfish so gigantic you can swim into them because you think they are caves. She’s happiest on a porch in the morning with a notebook and a pilot precise .38 pen.
Lover of the pacific northwest, spring storms, and coffee with dinner. Her main world news source is the BBC. She fancies herself a city girl while knowing in her heart she could never leave the wide open spaces of the Midwest. To her, the perfect day would include soup, an IPA, and a West Wing marathon. Most of all she loves her 5 siblings, dying her hair all by herself, and reading Sylvia Plath.
*It’s Winning London, obviously.
