Hi there. You’ve found our blog.

We’re Lara and Zack, aka “Veggie” and “Square.” We met in sixth grade in Atlanta, Georgia, became high school sweethearts, and made it through four years of long-distance in college. In the last few years, we’ve worked on a farm, hiked the Appalachian Trail from beginning to end, gotten married, and moved to Somerville, Massachusetts. This spring and summer, we’re attempting to hike the Pacific Crest Trail.

We’re still pretty darn smitten. Life is good, and we are grateful.

A few words about us, on our own:

VEGGIE (Lara) is into vegan cooking, yoga, writing, gobbling up books and scruffy dogs. She has the best friends and family ever.

SQUARE (Zack) is no “square,” in spite of his name. He loves running, gardening, and street art. He has eaten his weight in trail mix a few times over.
