We’re just living the Florida life and chasing our wildest dreams.

We hope to utilize this space as a way to creatively share our daily life, new adventures, local favorites like restaurants, beaches, parks and other things we love to do. Life is busy and we hope this little corner of the internet will help remind us to continue being grateful and maybe inspire others to do the same.

We are happiest with our feet in the sand and a drink in our hand.

October in Northern Ohio 2021

Mark and I were both born and raised in Ohio but we high tailed it out of there in 2015 and swore we would never look back at cold dreary weather. Each of us have made small trips back, but mostly for sad reasons (losses in the family) and not at all since the pandemic started. I’m ashamed to say I hadn’t seen my in-laws in over 4 years and had never even met my sweet little nephew – it was weighing on me… then my family experienced two more sudden losses this year – so I said enough was enough, life is too short, and we bought Allegiant non-stops flights to Toledo to spend a couple of days with Mark’s family before it truly gets Northern Ohio cold!

Ahhhhh – everyone should do this every six months – just sayin. Seeing as I am just now getting around to posting about our local adventures from that week, tells me things got crazy busy again as soon as it was over. One of the local adventures we took was our very first visit to Bok Tower Gardens.

We’re back!!

Since we last spoke, we bought a new house, moved across town, sold our old house, raised 4 baby squirrels full time and countless other time-consuming and emotional events occurred….
