Butterfly World

When it’s chilly outside and we are busy, the kids do not get to play at the playground or outside in general as much as they typically want to. This last week I had to drop my husband off at the airport for a business trip and I…

See Loggerheads in Juno Beach

Since I moved back to Florida in October 2017 I’ve been keeping an eye on what other people have been doing. Not in a creepy stalker kind of way (that’s my husbands job), rather, I have been watching where friends and family have been going and…

Go on Safari in Florida! (Part 1)

Today I am feeling a little under the weather. My kids and husband have been passing gunk back and forth for weeks and I have finally be hit with fatigue and a yucky throat. I’ve got my cupĀ  of hot cocoa and I am chilling at my kitchen…

New Years in Beautiful Destin, Florida

New Years came and went and I considered not posting about it. I did travel and see fireworks. But, it wasn’t the best trip and I thought it might be better to not mention it seeing that this is a travel blog and it’s typically more…

Have A “Fresh” Experience at Knaus Berry Farm

South Florida is getting a brisk New Year in 2018! The heat is turned on. I’ve got my electric kettle going and I’m going to do some more work on the blog and drink a hot cocoa. Starting 2018 I am looking back a week or…

Northern Florida Bucket List

Northern Florida is just too far away for us South Florida folk to visit often. It’s still in our state but it takes maybe nine hours to get up there from the Miami and Fort Lauderdale areas. Forget about it if you live in the Keys, it takes…

Authentic Gelato in Pembroke Pines

In Dubai I was surprised to see Gelato in many malls as the main cold treat compared to traditional ice cream. I drank the gelato “coolaid” and it was delicious. I was surprised by how creamy it was and the fruity taste was strong and clean (you know…

The Best Ice Cream Parlor (Part 2)

As much as I try to eat a healthy and balanced diet these days I will forever and always be a fat girl at heart. Ice cream is one thing that I still buy on a whim and eat in the afternoon when the kids are watching tv. I shove…

Why You Should Visit Flamingo Gardens

  When I was in elementary school I remember some field trips that the classes took around Southern Florida. There were two places that had an animal meet and greet presentation where snakes, baby gators, or some other Florida native would be introduced. One of the places was “The…

Tampa, Florida Bucket List

I didn’t take many vacations when I was young or even when I was first married. I feel that it’s a little weird for me to enjoy planning vacations. But I do, and since being back in Florida after nearly two years in the United Arab…

The Farmers Market You’ll Love (For Fall)

It’s Fall! I see so much about the season right now and how everyone is so excited to start cooking with pumpkin again (or just buying pumpkin junk at the store). Halloween is right around the corner and that means candy, jack-o-lanterns, lots of black, and…

The Best Ice Cream Parlor – Part 1

  If you grew up in Broward County, Florida then you very likely have been to Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor at some point in your youth. I have been there more often as an adult because it is a fun place to take visitors and the food is…

Southern Florida Bucket List

There is much more to South Florida than beaches, you have to know where to look is all. I grew up in South Florida. I spent a lot of my youth shut indoors reading and doing house work but I occasionally got to go see what was around me. When…
