Alexis in a nutshell...

My husband Chris is a fire fighter, we live in Oceanside, CA and we have a lazy chow chow named Kyra.

I have a bachelor's degree in interior design and I taught middle school social studies for 6 years.

I love Fleetwood Mac, Florida Georgia Line, Bon Iver and Iration equally.

I can't live without my favorite sushi restaurant.

Travel is a HUGE passion of mine. My favorite place ever is Big Sur, which is close to where I grew up in Monterey County, CA

I am a master road tripper. I have traveled by car to every state in the contiguous US, west of the Mississippi River (and to 3 of the Hawaiian Islands!) I have a major thing for "The West".

Camping, camping, camping!

I'm currently watching Fixer Upper, Grey's Anatomy, Last Man on Earth, The Goldbergs, Timeless, This is Us and re-watching The Office from the beginning. Dare I admit I like The Bachelor?

I love natural materials like stone, wood, leather, cotton, live plants and anything with history.

This is one of my favorite movie scenes ever, from my absolute favorite Christmas movie.

I like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain...
