Little Old Manatee

I was swimming around in our canal when God sent an angel… … in the form of a manatee. All animals are angels. Take my word for it. Quick fact, manatees were downgraded from endangered to threatened in 2017. Some of the laws that helped achieve this also state that if I laid a hand …

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 …

Cheeky Glaciers

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 …

My First Shark

Shark week is upon us.  & although I watch very little TV and am not a huge fan of Shark week (forgive me) … I will happily jump on the bandwagon – or dive into it. Sharks are most likely my favorite animal. Don’t quote me on that.  I love alligators too… Don’t quote me on …
