Letter from Lexi: October 2019

Happy October 1st! August and September were quite the whirlwind. We moved (!!!), we renovated a part of our home for our office (details coming this month), we got our second golden retriever puppy named LEO, we traveled for weddings, we had guests, birthdays, and more! Whoa, it’s tiring just reading that! Now that we are settled in our office and kitchen space, we have been cranking out and getting ready for ALL things Fall on the website. Testing our hearts out to make sure everything is delicious and just right for you! I am so excited for what’s coming this month, and I hope you are too!

Currently Reading:

The Most Fun We Ever Had by Claire Lombardo: This book is a hefty 544 pages, but don’t let that intimidate you! You’ll be glad you had every single one of those pages to get to know the Sorenson family… and you may even find yourself wishing it was even just a litttttle bit longer when it’s time to say goodbye. In The Most Fun We Ever Had, you’ll meet David and Marilyn Sorenson and their four daughters. The story jumps back and forth through time and space, giving you a sweeping picture of how families and people change and come together over the years. 

I’m making my way through our fall book list!

Safer pick of the month:

This months safer pick is… a really good, high performing, and safer EYE CREAM. A good eye cream is essential for anyone over the age of around 23 (in my opinion) — something I wish I started sooner! I’ve been using this one for about 2 months, my mom as well, and I can’t sing it’s praises enough!


  • Retinatural Complex: Two powerhouse plant-derived ingredients combined and truly created a  scientific breakthrough. Bakuchiol has been shown to provide skin-care results that are comparable to retinolwithout harmful side effects such as skin irritation and increased sun sensitivity—and Swiss Alpine rose boosts the skin’s antioxidant defense.
  • Persian Silk Tree Extract (Albizia Julibrissin Bark Extract): Proven in independent clinical studies to brighten the eye area, fade dark circles, diminish puffiness, and reduce the appearance of crow’s feet.
