Day Trip: Jacksonville, Florida

Things are starting off simple and steady here as B and I settle into our newish and temporary living arrangements. For those of you who don’t know yet, our family is temporarily split coast to coast for the next few months. While Geoff finishes up his duties with the Army in the state of Washington, Brooks and I are back in my hometown in Florida living with my parents; who have so graciously opened up their home to two new roommates (3 if you count both of B’s toddler personalities). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Being back home in the city I grew up in comes with an array of emotions, but mostly wonderful, sweet, joyful and spirit-filled with a few learning curves thrown in their for good measure…it’s all about those ABLs amiright?? Always Be Learning?…or something like that. ๐Ÿ™ƒ You can see more about our first few weeks during the holidays here, but as B and I settle into a new routine I’m crossing off a few things on my ‘New Adventures in Old Florida’ list. ย It’s been really fun looking at my hometown with a fresh set of eyes and new perspective. I love finding ways to enrich a place where I have so many fond memories with family and my dear friends #squad, and creating a whole new platform of memories in this season of my life; insert wife and mother here.

I have quite a few places to see on my list already and I can’t wait to share them here with y’all! I’ve also got some prettttyy exciting news on where our next stop will be for our family and I can’t wait to share it…but it’ll have to wait a few more weeks, sorry. ๐Ÿ˜‰

In the meantime, you’ll have to settle for a sweet little stop at a local park near my parents’ house. It’s right on the river complete with a dock, people fishing, and boats sailing by. So naturally I had to take B here, he’s such a little water baby! It may not compare to more grand scenes like this or this, but it doesn’t fail me in the memories shared with those I love most. โค
