Beadle Box

We’re blessed to live in our favorite area of Phoenix. To us, Arcadia and Arcadia Lite are comprised of the perfect blend of old and new. Old neighborhoods with charming and unique homes, well-established restaurants and coffee shops, and proximity to dozens of things to do both downtown and around the Valley. On the newer…

Going Green

“The earth laughs in flowers” – Ralph Waldo Emerson Arranging flowers has always brought me so much joy. Rather than picking pre-arranged bouquets, I opt for selecting a few different flower bundles to arrange myself and gift. I even decided to make my own wedding bouquet that I truly couldn’t have been happier with. I…

Gracie’s Tax Bar

Last week, we got to try out Gracie’s Tax Bar. Everything from the location to the building to the drinks to the ambiance was amazing. First of all: the location. Gracie’s is in an urban neighborhood off of 7th Avenue, just south of Roosevelt. Being so close to downtown means that it’s also within walking distance…

Farmers Market Meals

Few things are better than slow, weekend mornings at home. We enjoy sleeping a little longer, not having to rush to get ready for the day, and cooking breakfast together with music on and sunlight pouring through our windows. Even though we like to take these mornings a little slower, we still manage to do…

Sunday Funday

Sundays are the best days: sleeping in, relaxing, reflection of the previous week and preparation for the week that lies ahead, and the opportunity to breathe life in more slowly. Our Sunday consisted of making homemade pizza (smoked mozzarella, sautéed brussel sprouts, ham), continuing our Harry Potter movie marathon (currently on #3), enjoying fika with…

Neighborhood Eats

Dining out is an adventure – discovering new flavor combinations, testing your palette, venturing to places you’ve never been, and meeting new and interesting people. It’s a very social activity to come together and break bread, either with loved ones or complete strangers. While we very much enjoy trying new eateries, we love to frequent…
