LexingtonMommy.com was created and is managed by Kati Horton, who has lived in or around Lexington, SC pretty much forever. Whether you have an infant or a teenager, one child or twelve, our goal is to keep you informed and smiling!

We’ve designed the website to provide you with a plethora of information on local events and resources, articles on common topics that mothers encounter, and stories to make you smile and show that we are all really just trying to keep our ducks in a semi-straight line.

We believe that offering “fingertip” access to local community resources will make life a little less crazy. Our goal is to provide a website for Lexington, SC that puts a ton of information, support, and entertainment in one spot. So stop by often, sign up to receive our newsletters, join conversations on our social media accounts, and enjoy the site. Have fun!

Lexington Mommy Founder, Kati Horton
Kati Horton
Chief Mommy in Charge


Kati is a “work at home” and homeschooling mom of four, grandmother of one, adjusting to life with only one and a half kids “in residence”. The youngest makes sure it hasn’t gotten any calmer or quieter. But it’s still different.  Kati attended Lexington High School and University of South Carolina. Kati is married to her best friend and co-circus ring leader, Chris. They have four children and one grandchild. Oh and a super dramatic furbaby, Pepper the dog.

With “the kid” by her side (all. the. time.), Kati handles most aspects of the Lexington Mommy website and business and writes almost everything you see. Kati has been a single mom, a married mom, a work outside the home mom, work-at-home mom, stay-at-home mom, teen mom, special needs mom, grandma, preschool teacher, gymnastics teacher, office manager and featured on TV and in magazines. She’s made more than her fair share of mistakes but also has some pretty nifty accomplishments. Her very smart aunt tells her, “Kati, it ain’t boring but you wouldn’t know what to do with normal or boring.” Kati’s life is a circus, but she wouldn’t trade it for the world. And it makes for awesome stories 😉

Kati also owns and manages Brave Direction Media where she teaches small business owners and entrepreneurs who to plan, create, and grow their online presence without wanting to throw the computer out a window.

We provide families a monthly calendar of events, info about local resources, where kids eat free or cheap, local businesses, helpful articles, and much more.
