Tampa’s Best Restaurants

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been living in Tampa for eight months! One of our favorite parts of moving to Tampa has been the food! Prior to living here, I had no idea that we’d be eating some of the most fantastic food of our lives. This list will be ever evolving but below […]

April Reads

After a bit of a slow reading month in March, April was a month filled with some fantastic reads! My TBR (to be read) stack remains dozens of books long but I’m feeling like I’m in a great reading groove. Nothing sparks joy like surveying my bookshelf and deciding which book I’m going to begin […]

A Visit To Connecticut

We recently visited Connecticut for my cousins wedding. This was the first wedding we’ve attended since 2019! It was so wonderful for things to almost feel normal with hugging and eating meals together. Most of the guests in attendance were fully vaccinated, like Phil and I, so being around people without the added anxiety of […]

march reads

March was a blah reading month for me. I didn’t love anything I read and I actually stopped a book entirely 150 pages in which I never do. I abandon a book only if I truly dislike it otherwise will forge on – I don’t think I abandoned a book in all of 2020! Here’s […]

A Visit To Tarpon Springs

We’ve been doing weekend trips touring our new city and are having an amazing time doing it! Last month we took the thirty minute drive up to Tarpon Springs. Tarpon Springs is a small city with strong Greek roots as Greek sponge divers settled there in the early 1900’s. It’s known as the sponge capital […]

LASIK Eye Surgery

Having glasses on my face has been a part of who I am for most of my adult life. The first time I realized I couldn’t see well was at church when I was in middle school. Standing at the back of the church I couldn’t read the hymn numbers posted on the wall towards […]
