Tennessee to Open Seas

I love sharing my ocean with people. Obviously. LMAOBut bringing kids on the boat – is something that excites me beyond measure. Not only does it mean teaching future generations to care for the ocean – it means there will be others onboard as hyped about animals AND waves AND shells AND FISHAND SHARKS (I …

Gloomy Curacao

I have had this post done for a long time (well the pictures and videos) but I kept coming back to edit the words because this time Curacao was different. Rewind with me for a second; 2018 was one of the best years of my life. I was single for the first time in way …

Manatee in Our Canal

I never feel so blessed as I do when a wild animal approaches me. This gorgeous thing made it’s way to the canal in front of our house in the keys seeking warmer waters during the winter (if I can call what South Florida has ‘winter’ anyway). If you know anything about manatees, it’s that …

Thank u, Breck

Since this is my first post since 2018 – HAPPY NEW YEAR! Last year was amazing and I am so excited for a whole new spring, summer, & fall to adventure throughout. Winter however, I need a little more push to enjoy. & no one pushes me like my two best friends. Particularly the one …

Dushi Curaçao

Relax. “Dushi” means sweet in Papimiento… ya’ pessimists. People there use it as a term of endearment like “sweetie.” I’m so sorry for how cliché this is but this year, (cue valley-girl high-pitch voice… or Miami super chonga voice with thick brows and a Michael Kors bag [ie my regular voice]) I decided I was …

Dying Stars

These are relatively health coral heads: (That clearly do more squats than me) They are starlet corals. Growing up I would stand on the rails of the boat with my eyes squinted looking into the blue horizon as my dad drove the boat. Each of us waiting for a signal from the other. We were …

Icy Love

I would go to the ends of the world for my best friend, so I don’t bat an eye to fly to Denver. … but to be completely honest with you all, it wasn’t just Nina that lured me here this time. I met someone. I met what I feel like could have been the …

Rainy Labor

I judge people based on how they feel about rain. Everyone likes sunshine and tan-lines. *hard eye-roll* Let’s hear it for raindrops and muddy feet ! JK I don’t judge anyone (or I try not to #2016Resolution) This past Labor Day weekend was a rainy one. These are some of my normal rainy day activities: I …

I Found a Pole

If you read my about me you know that I “[find] wonder in the ordinarily mundane” (#wordmagic) and this post & pole will serve as proof. I found a pole in the ocean and I loved it. Two poles to be precise. All ocean-goers know the excitement of finding any big structures in open water. …

Atlanta, Ooh na na

When people ask me if I like to travel I usually give them the same response “I’m not #wanderlust but I’ll travel if presented with the opportunity.” No, I don’t mean a great deal on an all-expense paid trip to Italy, I mean real spontaneity with good people and loose plans. That’s my kind of …
