Abbie (left) & Katie (right)

Hi there! Katie and Abbie here. Living our hectic lives that we are oh-so-grateful for. We reside in a small Kentucky town located on the Ohio River. We both live in the downtown area just minutes away from each other (naturally, as sisters do) off Elm Street, hence “Life Off Elm”. Our quaint little town has so much charm and embraces the southern culture, as do we. Being young professionals, we both have full time jobs, in addition to sharing our life with you here. From design to motherhood to recipes and healthy living, we want to tell all.

Katie works remotely from her home as the Associate Director of Revenue for a web development agency. She is the mother of a busy toddler, Carter Claire. Motherhood is…well let’s just be honest here, it’s exhausting and really quite terrifying much of the time. But man, those baby hugs sure do make it worth it. She’ll tell you all about it under Motherhood. The duo live in a small cottage with a big vision. Her knack for design will take your breath away making every space one of a kind. Recently, Katie and Carter Claire got to experience the joys of “flipping” their house and boy was it good.

Abbie spends her days in Human Resources for a fortune 300 company. Working long hours (no kidding, it’s like 90 hrs/week cause she’s a #boss) and traveling to surrounding states, Abbie still finds the time to focus on her passion of healthy living, specifically healthy eating. Unbeknownst to many, this lifestyle began after her and her husband (Alex) were hit with the life altering news of infertility in early 2015. Not giving up hope, Abbie adopted the Paleo way of eating to help aid the effects of her infertility. In 2017, Abbie and Alex were thrilled at the news of expecting a baby boy! Born July 2018, Henry is PERFECT. Find her favorite dishes under Recipes and follow her journey in becoming a new mom under Motherhood.

We hope to share all the joys and experiences we’re lucky enough to have and maybe (hopefully) make you laugh a little bit along the way. Let’s do life together, y’all!
