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 […]

Salvador Dali Museum In St. Pete

A few months ago I had seen an advertisement for the Van Gogh exhibit at the Salvador Dali Museum located in St. Pete. I didn’t know much about the Dali but after looking up the exhibit it sounded intriguing and I decided to book us tickets. Most weekends were sold out due to limited tickets […]

Living In Tampa For Super Bowl LIV

Living in the city that hosted the Super Bowl has been such a unique experience. The weeks leading up to the game we’d drive by the stadium and watch it slowly change as massive billboards and signage began decorating the stadium.
