northern michigan part 2

Don’t write Mackinac Island off as a tourist trap–the picturesque island is a lovely place to indulge, explore, and find adventure…without all the crowds and (one-too-many) fudge shoppes. I think travel should be about experiencing different cultures and discovering the local favorites…ya know, getting off the beaten path. We’ve been traveling to Mackinac Island each summer […]

  Northern Michigan is full of beautiful sites, great hotels, fabulous shopping, and delicious dining…I could go on and on.

hello. welcome to in the hutch. i'm lexi. here you'll find a collection of my everyday trinkets and tidbits. these are items that i find beautiful and inspirational...a menagerie of my favorite things.


  • collecting the last of the tomatoes, cutting dahlias, and clipping herbs. this weather...i'll take it! 🍅🌿❤️
  • made a big pot of one of our fall favorites today--smoked paprika chicken soup. the recipe is super simple. link in bio.
  • sometimes i wear animal print and sometimes i convince my husband to stand in the photo...but neither happen often. ☺️
this weekend we tackled a few house projects, hit the beach, ate double cheeseburgers 🍔, slept in, and watched a bit too much tv...a simple, but great couple days. ✔️farewell weekend! 👋🏼
  • we are winding down to the end of our basement finishing process...i am so ready! {insert happy dance here} but today i'm changing gears a bit and working on designing the mantel for our upstairs fireplace. i'm gleaning some inspiration from pinterest--particularly this fabulous photo from @mademoisellepoirot. black fireplace: 😍✔️
  • 🍂 all the fall feels--gimme everything pumpkin, apple, and...tulips! we are planting a wagon full of bulbs today--a bit strange to be thinking about spring when it's barely fall, but there's nothing like seeing the tips of tulips poke up from the ground after a looooooong michigan winter, am i right!? 🍂🌷🎃🍂🌷🎃
  • it's a gloomy, yet beautiful day here. i'm taking five minutes to sit, sip tea, and stare at the falling rain...and not feel guilty about it. {then it's back to energizer-bunny-mode.} ☕️🐰 p.s. see that soap? i have a slight obsession with it...i may or may not have 16 (give or take) bottles, but i decorate with them, gift them, and use it's a win-win in my mind! anyway, they had a new lemongrass scent at @homegoods yesterday and i just had to grab a couple more. #addingtothecollection
  • comfy sweaters, big cups of tea, and messy hair...good morning! xo
  • kicking off the weekend with a big ole bag of donut holes. trying to soak in every moment--i can't believe this little monkey heads to preschool next week!
  • each peach pear plum. 
our twenty pounds of michigan peaches have been devoured (✔️✔️✔️) and now we're onto iowa peaches from gma + papa's backyard. 🍑#cantgetenough #peachout
  • fancy feet friday. happy weekend to you! xo
  • this weather! i'm all for sleeping with the windows wide open, apple cider, and everything pumpkin...but i'm not ready to let summer go! 🙃#feelslikefall
  • who knew tuesdays could be so great!? ax and i spent the morning doing tie dye with friends, ate pizza for lunch 🍕, took naps 😴 (yes!), played legos, caught a caterpillar 🐛, and then i had a girls night out with @kimraystyle at @springsweet that later included drinks + strawberry shortcake 🍹🍓 at @butchsdrydock. {take a look at all the gorgeousness at @springsweet on my insta stories} bonus: they also made some serious headway on my basement project today which makes me oh-so-happy! 👏🏼those photos will be up tomorrow...gnite! xo
