Welcome to our blog!!  We are a mother and daughter navigating through life.  The two of us have a love for everything small town, small business and anything involving food!


Hi, I am Stephanie (the mother).  My husband Jim and I have been married for over 30 years.  We have two grown children – Sydney (25) and Mason (23).  Also, I am the mother to Bentley, our standard poodle.  Jim and I are starting to navigate the beginning world of caring for our aging parents, very new territory for us.  Excited for what the future holds, hopefully some grandchildren one day!!


Hi, I am Sydney (the daughter).  On June 25, 2016 I married my hubby Austin.  We moved to Florida for the first seven months of our marriage, but we recently were able to move back home!  Go Buckeyes!  Our family is small with just the two of us right now…but little ones are definitely in the future!!  I absolutely love cooking/baking (anything to do with the kitchen really), decorating of any kind, and shopping.  Something else you may figure out through this blog is that I am a Christmas fanatic (to put it lightly)!  It drives my hubby crazy.  ๐Ÿ˜‰
