Our Story

Essential Eleven

For three out of four of us, Cary, NC is our hometown. It’s now a place where others love to live, and we’ve seen tremendous growth. As such, we get asked (A LOT) about our favorite places, services, and things.

Did we mention that we really, really enjoy travel? Other favorites are fires, basketball, Harry Potter, food, craft beer, college football and reading. And Legos, a good bargain, and splurges.

From this, our family decided to share our tried-and-true recommendations. We hope that these things bring you joy, and save you time and money from trying alternatives that may or may not measure up. Do we have some affiliate links? Yes, we do have some. They keep the page up, and the testing going.

We are trying to live our lives to the fullest, and never take a day for granted. Have we missed something that’s essential to you? We’d love to hear about it. You can drop us a line here.
