What have we learned? Roll with it. . . What have we forgotten? The things that really are not important and don’t really matter at the end of our day. What do we need more of? Magical fibers of love. . .AKA dog fur. Sunsets, beach walks, laughter. What do we live by? Move more, laugh a lot, focus on what matters.
Things to do in a new year: Commit to healthy eating Commit to sticking to a budget Commit to continuing with the selling of properties, this time rental on the Monongahela River Continue to breathe, believe, receive and live everyday in the moment. Continue to find time to exercise either on the bike or at the gym Maybe even find time to hit the gym with friends like we once did at lunch Get back in the pool for at […]

Ok, so some of you were asked to put together a fun list. . . Funny how the work list is easy to do but thinking about fun can be more challenging. . . Here’s what a first-timer thought would be good, so I figured I’ll research and see what makes the most sense. Visit a Fort, does Ft. Walton Beach count? What about the Gulf Islands National Seashore with Fort Pickens or Fort Barrancas. Destin’s Boardwalk https://goo.gl/maps/9vipUvto4pitMxL96 Destin’s other […]
Who said you need to have pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving? After living in Wisconsin, how could you not have a Kringle for your morning gatherings? Or if you’ve been in the gulf coast region there is the King Cake. Unfortunately if you are living in PA, OH ships the Kringles, Paul’s ships the king cake year round. . .trying too find the perfect one is a little more challenging.

The five course meal was presented better than my 8th grade science project, complete with oysters in volcano mode. The service that night from David, Miguel and Amado was just as amazing as the presentation. greens lobster lasagnabeef cheek a new twist on dirt, complete with flowers […]
There is something about being in the bachelorette party capital of the south on a Saturday. Everywhere you go there are party busses, pedal carts and woo girls. You may also run into a Carl Wockner, Jade Million or a few warehouse members that stumble into Acme Feed and Seed. If you like Las Vegas on NYC, Nashville has that same vibe, just only a few blocks instead of the strip or all of Manhattan. If you stroll just right […]
