    Exploring Asheville, North Carolina

    We just got back from spending a long weekend in Asheville, NC to celebrate my husband’s 30th! We had a pretty amazing time – the city is just so different from most places we’ve been. We stayed in our first Airbnb, and I HIGHLY recommend looking into 80 LEX if you're visiting. The location was perfect and the design of the entire building is incredible. The food here is definitely worth going for – both being vegetarians, we’re always concerned we won’t have many options. But, we were able to find several options everywhere we went. A few recommendations: Curate, Tupelo Honey, Over Easy, Biscuit Head, Gan Shan Station. For drinks…

    Who I Am and Why I’m Here

      Hey guys! Before I dive head first into what you’re here to see, I thought I’d give you a little background on who I am.

We love our neighborhood and plan to stick around for the long haul. I work in communications at a Fortune 500 company in the Northeast Ohio area. I’ve been there for about five years and love my job. It’s given me a lot of the skills and knowledge that I hope to apply to…

    Welcome!

    Hello….I’m Lexi! Welcome to my blog – I’m so glad you are here. This has been a longtime dream of mine, and I’m so excited to finally be here. I started this blog for several reasons – the most important being a creative outlet for my passions and a way to document and remember this time in our lives. My goal is to keep this blog focused on a few key topics: home design with a few fashion/lifestyle tips along the way. Admittedly a fairly broad range of topics, but as a self-proclaimed shopaholic, I likely won’t be able to resist sharing some of my favorite finds along the way.…
