Tips for Conquering Epcot Food and Wine

Disney Florida Life Like a Local Travel

In my last post, I listed some of my favorite fall events and festivities in Orlando, one of them being Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. If you’ve been to this event, or just attempted to eat and drink around the world, you probably noticed how popular it is among the bachelor and bachelorette parties. Well, I was one of those a few weeks ago. Seems like nowadays you can’t go to Epcot Food and Wine without making some sort…

Festive Fall Events in Orlando, Florida

Disney Florida Life Like a Local Travel Universal Orlando

What does Fall mean to me? Crisp air, falling leaves and cozy blankets. Unfortunately, Florida doesn’t lend itself to these luxuries very often.  In fact, the first Florida “fall front” blew through earlier this week and the temperatures finally fell from the high 90’s to low 80’s (we’re even going to drop to 70’s next week!!!!!). So, while I would love to believe we would have a cool fall season, it likely won’t happen, so fall to me includes theme…

Happy First Day of Summer!

Florida Life Travel

It’s not summer without a trip to the beach. And for me, it’s not summer without a trip to my favorite beach: Captiva! While it has been a bit rainy and cloudy, I still managed to get enough sun to resemble a lobster. This is what happens when you only go to the beach once a year and try to soak up as many rays as you can in a few days. Oops. Besides all that, it’s still the most…

Coffee Breaks Make Great Dates

Life Like a Local Orlando Travel

Lately, I’ve been on the go a lot. Between weddings, anniversaries, family visits, it’s been awhile since I’ve had a quiet weekend at home. It was nice to not have any sort of plans or schedule this weekend and just play it by ear, exploring our own back yard. First up, Greenwood Urban Wetland Park. This beautiful oasis is plop in the middle of Downtown Orlando, but surprisingly quiet and peaceful. Thanks to the recent drought, water levels were surprisingly…

Better bedhead than dead 

Life

*Disclaimer: This blog post was written under the influence of pain mediciation, so I am not responsible for any grammatical or spelling errors.    Last week at this time I was living life and now my claim to fame is getting out of bed on my own. May not seem like the biggest feat, but after the week I’ve had, it’s progress. This past week has taught me a lot of life lessons. When your body is in pain, listen…

#PrayforGatlinburg

Life Travel

It’s incredible how much of a difference a week can make. A week ago today I was in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, enjoying the views from my cabin in the woods at Westgate Resorts. Now, that cabin no longer exists. All that’s left is the memories thousands of people hold on to who travel to the Great Smoky Mountains year after year. So much devastation in the blink of an eye. While I conscientiously labored through my emails today, the news served…

Walkers, Weddings and Wine

Life

While I’m excited it’s the weekend, I’m a little nervous for what’s to come. I mean there’s the usual errands and cleaning to do, but come Sunday night around 9 o’clock, it will be that time when my heart is once again ripped from my chest. I’m still trying to catch up after the emotional overload that was last weekend. First of all, The Walking Dead…I wore black on Monday for a reason. After 7 seasons, these characters have become…

Happy International Sloth Day

Life Like a Local Travel

Following a few very busy weeks, I’ve begun to channel my inner sloth. So, in honor of International Sloth Day, I will be celebrating by taking a nap, eating dinner and then promptly getting back in bed. If there is any day where you can get the okay to be lazy, today is that day! And once you are all rested up, head to Wild Florida in Kissimmee, Florida and experience a real life sloth encounter of your very own.…
