A Trip Through The Everglades

Alas, a few days ago it was fairly overcast and much cooler than it has been since we’ve arrived in Miami so we dashed over there after lunch to check it out.

I had this sneaky feeling that these airboat tours had somehow turned into an amusement park attraction that was going to include no alligator sightings and some goofy show.

It was the exact opposite.

St. Augustine, FL

Alternative title - a beautiful sauna.

“The heat is not soul - crushingly hot”, is what my mom said when we first got here. I would mostly agree with that. It is pretty bearable. The shade is actually quite pleasant but when we open the door of our RV, we are hit with sauna like steam and I want to immediately go back inside where it’s cool and we have a fan (and AC).

Spanish Moss and A Lighthouse

We spent one afternoon walking around downtown Savannah and exploring Forsyth Park and the neighboring streets. Savannah has held on strong to its roots and beautiful architecture.

Meet Me in St. Louis!

Meet Me in St. Louis, the musical film with Judy Garland, was an all time favorite of my Aunt Cardie. She showed it to me over and over again.

We would belt out - Clang, clang, clang went the trolley with Judy and the rest of the cast.

Paying Attention

Goodbye Instagram.

Yep, it happened. At least for the foreseeable future. I deleted Facebook off my phone about a year ago and Instagram was a lot harder. I would delete it and then a few days later I couldn’t stand it.

Eataly Heaven

I spent three months in Italy when I was a sophomore in college and the closest I’ve gotten to it since was stepping into Eataly.

Basil, tomatoes and focaccia - OH MY!

Nobody Puts Chicago in the Corner

Chicago has never been on my radar and I haven’t thought about visiting in the past. But my mom wanted to make it there this year and take us on the Architectural River Tour. She was ecstatic.
