Day Trip: Visiting the Florida Caverns

Day Trip: Visiting the Florida Caverns

For as long as I lived in Florida (hint: it’s long enough) I never even knew there were caverns to explore! And to paint more of a picture, I’ve passed them every summer since I was a little girl (no need to do the math😉) and never blinked an eye — here’s where having little ones makes life a little sweeter. 💜 Exploring has been something I’ve always loved, my mom calls it ‘plundering’, I like to call it ‘intentional exploring’. 😉 It’s like letting my ADD roam free without a care in the world…*something shiny✨ Continue reading “Day Trip: Visiting the Florida Caverns”

Exploring Jacksonville

Exploring Jacksonville

One of the main things I wanted to do during my short-term stay here in Jacksonville was explore the more obvious scenic spots that we ‘locals’ become blind to on a day-to-day basis. I’m a firm believer in doing the touristy stuff in every city I live in…I mean there’s a reason why out-of-towners go visit these monuments, hotspots, or viewpoints – because it offers something special to the location. So, I want to capture those special spots throughout my hometown and see it with a fresh perspective, as a ‘visitor’. Continue reading “Exploring Jacksonville”

Washington Oaks Park

Washington Oaks Park

This beach y’all…this BEACH! I’m going to be honest here and say that I wish I could just post this outing over and over…and over again. I mean, I took hundreds (yes, hundreds) of pictures and uh, wish I could post them all on this post!

I think it’s safe to say this is hands down one of my favorite days with Brooks. The pictures that captured the joy from the day and the genuinely fun time we had marks this one in the top memories for me. This beach is such a gorgeous hidden gym I have N E V E R heard of until recently. It’s really amazing what you can find in your area with a simple Google search. This particular outing was suggested by a friend from church, but I remember reading about it when searching ‘places to visit/photograph.’ #themoreyouknow 💫 Continue reading “Washington Oaks Park”

Black Rock Beach

Black Rock Beach

It’s been really special to have this extra time in my home town, staying with my mom and dad as they’ve opened their home so graciously to B and me for over 3 months (that’s a lot of toddler time folks). 😁 But one of the more meaningful reasons I love this time is for the special things I get to share with each of them on our own time. I’ve done a few fun outings with my mom I’ll be sharing soon on LtL, but today’s post is dedicated to my dad. ❤️ I’ve written a few special ones for my mom in the past and it’s about time I make this one for my ol’ man, because y’all, I may be biased, but he’s a pretty special man.
