I’m Kelsey, the creator of award-winning Austin restaurant and lifestyle blog So Much Life. Since its inception in 2016, So Much Life has become the go-to resource for millions of Austin locals and visitors wanting to discover the hottest restaurants and best things to do in Austin. In 2019 I published my first book, Austin Food Crawls, a colorful neighborhood food guide to Austin to help hungry foodies discover the best restaurants in the city.
So Much Life has been featured in Austin Monthly Magazine, The CW Austin, Eater.com, Studio 512 TV, and The Positive Influence podcast. At its core, this website and accompanying instagram page are about living each day to its fullest by appreciating good food, fun experiences, and meaningful conversations.
I’m a Texan by birth and Austinite by choice. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin (hook ’em!), met my husband through online dating, bought a home in Austin, and started eating as much barbecue as I could. My days are full of exploring Austin restaurants, attending barre classes, cooking dinner with my husband, and snuggling my sweet baby boy, Milo.
