Hi! I’m Lindsey. The solo gal behind LemonHearted.

I’m not a self-proclaimed “influencer” or a food critic. I’m just someone using the internet as a creative outlet to share information.

I started LemonHearted back in 2013 as a way to get more connected to Orlando as it began to thrive and support local businesses. I wanted to share the places I explored so everyone had more than the surface knowledge of these businesses and hopefully in turn feel compelled to patron them.

This site is not monetized so you can be sure that anything I write about is because I chose to include it, and not because someone paid me to do so.

This blog is NOT my job, but rather allows me creative expression and the ability to form selective bonds within my community and support and highlight local makers.

Almost everything I write about is something I decided to check out and experience in my own personal time. Sometimes a local business reaches out to me and if it’s something I think is valuable to share, I explore it in my own time. I support local businesses by paying for my meals and my experiences, never asking for free perks.

It’s rare for me to attend media events or media dines, as I prefer to share authentic experiences. In the rare occurrence I do accept an invitation from a local business or brand, that information will be clearly disclosed and not buried under hashtags.

All city guides showcased on my site are personal trips or vacations and are not sponsored in any way.

I hope you find my site helpful and enjoy getting to know Orlando and the surrounding cities a little better.
