Hi! I’m Stacey.

Welcome to my site. Thanks so much for visiting.


I grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, moved to Los Angeles California from 2010 -2016. In 2016 my husband Dave and I  headed out for a year on an adventure through Europe to explore, learn, create, and contribute. 

We have a passion for learning new things, exploring, and meeting new people. So we decided to spend a month in each location to a real feel for local life, rather than just spending a day or two in more locations. 

We both work from home which allowed us to take the year to explore and find inspiration. Midway through we landed in Stari Grad on the island of Hvar in Croatia. We fell in love, and under the spell of the town and its wonderful residents, we purchased an old stone home.


We have been spending 3 months at a time in Croatia renovating the house and 3 months back in Philadelphia. If you are an avid traveler you know the pain of the 90 out of 180 rules.

If you’d like to follow along in the renovation journey please visit our site.

And… check back here for regular updates. 

All the best.

Stacey (&Dave)
