Hi I'm Brad, a Sales Associate at SKORDO. I'm a recent transplant to Portland, Maine. My girlfriend and I moved to the city from West Virginia a year ago. We have definitely fallen in love with the area. I think calling Portland a city really isn't fair. It feels and operates like an oversized beach town.
Moving to Portland after one visit is a common theme and there are no exceptions here, but my inspiration to move may be a little different. While I love all of Portland's food, I chose Maine to satisfy my sense of adventure and I've found more fun stuff to do in Portland than I thought possible.
Decorating eggs is one of my favorite childhood memories. At our house it was all about the add-ons: Rubber bands for a tie dyed effect, Crayon drawing, dripped wax, intentional cracks, even glued on 'hair' for portrait eggs - you name it, we gave it a try.
This years approach was back to basics. In place of store bought box kits, I raided our pantry and fridge for natural dyes. The end results were muted pastels fit for a grown up Easter basket.
Over the last few years (pre pandemic) my husband and I have taken two trips to Africa. The first was our honeymoon in South Africa and the second was a family trip to Morocco with my dad and his wife. This morning we were dreaming of another trip to Kenya or Tanzania or Senegal.
