A New Year’s Change

Welcome to 2018. If you’re flipping through these pages and are wondering whether you’re in the right place, you are! With 12 fresh months at our feet, we’ve opted for a new year of renewal, reflection and change here at Two Eighty Lifestyle.

A Season of Giving

As we turn the page of this year’s calendar to December, it seems like it was just yesterday we were singing carols, unwrapping gifts and toasting to 2017. Now—as unbelievable as it may seem—it’s time to do it all over again.

A Time to be Thankful

Thankful: it’s a word that gets tossed around a lot this time of year as November arrives and 2017 begins to draw to a close. And although it typically marks the winding down of the year, November is also a season of beginnings. This month begins the season of giving and the season of receiving. It begins the season of…
