Station: what we’re doing
Bre Langelo, sales associate at Wall Street
I love expressing myself through my personal style, and keeping up with current trends. Wall Street is a great place for me to be. It feels great to help people find clothes that make them feel good on the inside and out.
It’s a great workout and brings balance in my life. I always feel refreshed and relaxed after a good hike.
Curling up with a good book is a good way to wind down after a long day. I enjoy reading biographies the most. I recently read a very interesting biography on Marilyn Monroe.
Will Taylor, Service Manager at BowMel Chrysler
My number one hobby is driving. I love to go with my wife driving down the Oregon coast, or cruising around on our own beautiful island.
I go fishing at Fuller Lake. It’s a great, clean lake that’s only 20 minutes away.
I love gardening. I love the taste of fresh potatoes and garlic grown in our backyard.
Andrea Strachan, floral designer at Leaf and Petal
Raising and tending my orchids and plants. There is something about nurturing an organism, whether children, pets or plants that fulfills an inherent need in people, particularly women. The kids don’t need as much care anymore, enter the plants. Plus, you don’t have to clean up after plants, and they don’t talk back.
Escaping into another world does wonders for the psyche. I love being immersed in a story so thoroughly that being interrupted is like waking from a dream. I also lose myself for long periods of time reading the dictionary. Strange, but true.
I like searching for foliage, branches, rocks, skulls and other intriguing elements of nature which inspire my floral creations. I’m always on the lookout for something beautiful, and unorthodox.
