An Underrated Paradise in the South – Exploring the Alabama Gulf Coast

Orange Beach

Last month I traveled to an underrated paradise in the south with 32 miles of white soft sandy beaches, clear waters, a booming foodie scene, and no shortage of entertainment and fun things to do. Where was this stateside gem? It was the Alabama Gulf Coast. I spent 3 days and 3 nights exploring the Alabama Gulf Coast and I’m so excited to share with you how this region won me over. It has its own personality completely different from the rest of the state. I found the beach towns of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach to be progressive, inclusive, welcoming and just down right charming. Read More »

What to Expect on Your First Deep Sea Fishing Trip

what to expect on your first deep sea fishing trip

We recently celebrated my son’s 16th birthday.  When I asked him what he wanted to do to celebrate this milestone, I was expecting him to want a party or maybe even ask for a reason to use his passport. What he actually asked for surprised me — he wanted a deep sea fishing trip with his friends. I didn’t see that coming. No denying him, he’s totally my kid.  Of course he wants an adventure for his birthday! That’s definitely not what most 16 years his age are asking for and I was more than happy to oblige his request.  Read More »

Floridians…not so much. When the temperatures dip down into those disrespectful digits in the 30s and 40s, there is one thing that we get excited about.  Okay two things.  We do like dressing the part for winter so when we can wear boots without getting sweaty calves that’s a win. But more importantly, colder temperatures means an abundance of the unofficial Florida mascot, the manatee!!! Read More »

Visit to Devil’s Den Underground Spring


They say that whatever you are doing on the first day of the year sets the barometer for how the rest of the year will go. I decided this year I would start off with an adventure to kick off my 2016. You’ve seen my 2016 adventure bucketlist, so I’m counting on this year to be one of the most adventurous ever.  On New Year’s Day, my son and my adventure buddy Nicole and I headed north of Tampa to a little sleepy town called Williston, FL. If you blink, you’ll miss it. I had been dying to get to the famed Devil’s Den, an underground spring in a prehistoric cavern. What better day to visit Devil’s Den than the first day of the year!
