My friends call me “a social butterfly” but I like to think of myself as a “social archeologist,” peeling away the layers of this fantastic city to unearth the beauty, the fun, the excitement and the possibilities in Cleveland and bits and pieces of Northeast Ohio.
It all started in 2007 when many of my best friends began to have wee ones and work from home. In order to keep them connected and engaged with the social scene I would write a weekly email that had my thoughts on the new restaurants, the upcoming parties, unique people I had met, etc. From what I heard this email was being forwarded from one mommy group to another and my voice was being scattered around the city.
I thought, “why not make a place where other like-minded people could comment and advise me of what’s happening?” and so “I heart cleveland” was born.
My name is Charity and when I’m not blogging I am the founder and a designer at Chartreuse Inc, a boutique design firm nestled on the west end of Lakewood. In my spare time I teach spinning and practice yoga, glamp out in my 1972 Airstream Landyacht – Amelia, cuddle with my pug-friend Sir Franklin and spend the weekends relaxing at the beach or riding my bike around town.
