Hi! Welcome to Lovely in the Everyday! I’m Alexis and this is my place to share stories of people, places and things, both fictional and real. If you love traveling, reading, cooking, pretty things, sentimentality, extraordinary people or just a good story, this is the place to be.
I’ve been writing since before I can remember. Stories, songs, poems, you name it. And, if I can toot my own horn, I’m pretty good at it. I attended college at George Fox University, a teeny, tiny college in Newberg, OR, thinking I would return to my hometown of Seattle within three or four year. Never underestimate the power of falling in love. I fell in love with Oregon and with the Willamette Valley and have no plans to leave anytime soon. My flame-tipped Siamese, Neville and I enjoy spending time with our roommates, exploring the valley and far, far, beyond, eating good food and drinking good wine, and writing about it all.
Just so you can know a little more about me, here a few of my favorite things.
rain, snow, and thunderstorms
tea with lots of milk and sugar
curling up in front of a fire with a good book
daffodils and wildflowers
walks outside in golden late autumn
good conversations with family and friends
the sound of a child’s laughter
christmas time with my family
Don’t know where to start? Check out some series posts I’ve done:
And to finish off, here is a video that a good friend made for me: an elevator speech of sorts.
