I’m a nature nut. I love birds, sea critters, plants, animals…all of God’s creation. I like to beachcomb for shells and other stuff that washes up, bird watch, and I keep a nature journal. I homeschool my two boys (awesome middle- and high-schoolers), play with my dog (a black lab-chow mix that doesn’t like to swim), hang out with my husband (a really cool dude that digs southern food and baseball). I like the old b&w movies, classic books, beach music, and taking pictures. I like to draw, paint and create. I have lived along the Gulf of Mexico from Houston to Sarasota but started blogging while living on Siesta Key. Of all the things I love, I mostly enjoy my family and life here along the Gulf Coast.
