Season 3 of Bloodline will be out this Friday and we can’t wait to see what the Rayburn family will get into next! We’ve been rewatching seasons 1 & 2 to get ready for it and now that we’ve been here a while we recognize just about everywhere they’re filming. I guess that’s what happens when, Read More

Could we be happy living in Cozumel? I think the answer is yes and that’s what we’ll be trying to figure out while we’re there. We’re leaving for Cozumel in just a few days so of course we have a hit list of things we want to accomplish there. It’s also our first vacation in a, Read More

We haven’t been on an exploratory trip in a long time, 18 months to be exact. It turns out that selling all of your stuff and moving to the Florida Keys eats up a lot of vacation time. We’re both itching to go on an adventure, get away for a bit, and check out, Read More

There are times in life when seemingly unimportant decisions lead to huge life changes, changes you couldn’t have anticipated in a million years. Changes that are totally disconnected from the event that started the ball rolling. Our move to the Keys is a great example of this…

One of the things I love most about living in the Keys is how everything revolves around the water. Diving, paddling, snorkeling, boating or fishing – almost everyone here has something to do with the water.

There are no beaches in the Keys! People are always surprised when I tell them this but the Keys are made of coral and rock, hence the great diving and complete lack of beaches. There are a few man-made ones and a few small natural ones but I guarantee you they’re not what you, Read More

Like a switch was flipped, everyone is gone. Welcome to “no season” in the Keys, a season even slower than “low season.” Bayside Grille (one of our sunset hangouts) was almost empty last night. We walked right up to the bar at Skipper’s for dinner and had our pick of seats. If you’ve been, Read More

You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here! Now that we’ve sold pretty much everything we own and the months on our lease are ticking by, it’s time to get serious about where we’ll go when we leave our corporate jobs. We both want to travel for a month or two, Read More

I usually have something I want to write about but this weekend I was drawing a blank so I figured I’d sit down and see where my thoughts went and invite you along for the ride! I hope this blog will help you or someone you know see what it’s like to make big, Read More

Sometimes it’s nice to get away even if it’s just for a couple of days. There’s something restorative about a change of scenery & about not having anything to do. There are no chores, yard work or dogs to take care of (love my dogs!) – just downtime. We recently returned from 2 nights, Read More
