My name is Lauren and this is the space where I share tidbits about being a young couple living in Phoenix (specifically Arcadia), Arizona!

I started this blog as a way to chronicle our Arcadia lifestyle as newlyweds complete with amazing restaurants (we are serious foodies!), local boutiques, and our active lifestyle (we have to work off the amazing food we eat)! Matt and I also love to travel, so when we are not at our local spots in Arcadia, we are off seeing the world! 





My husband Matt and I met in Tucson, Arizona at the University of Arizona (Bear Down!).  We grew up less than 5 miles from each other and actually went to the same high school, but our love story started our Sophomore year of college.

Matt and I lived in the suburbs of Phoenix most of our lives, but really didn’t know all Phoenix had to offer until we moved to the Arcadia area.  Since then, we can’t imagine living anywhere else.  I created this blog as a way to share all the amazing local spots with you, in hopes that you will love living the Arcadia Lifestyle as much as we do!



You may see some (let’s be honest, frequent) pictures of a little white shepard named Rose.  She is our fur-daughter who often accompanies us to Arcadia spots (as many are dog-friendly!).



So happy you stopped by, come join me in living the Arcadia Lifestyle!


XO, Arcadia Wife
