#OrlandoStrong

Florida Life Orlando Travel

It’s been a hard week. It’s been a hard week for America.  It’s been a hard week as an Orlando native.  The saving grace of it all is to see how my community has come together to support each other through this tough time.  We’ve let go of the political prejudice, cultural divide and racial tension, and come together as a city. It’s sometimes hard for me to express my emotions, in fact, really hard.  I always want to appear…

Bad Day: Shake it Off

Life

I know I am centuries late to this one, but I am obsessed with Ryan Adams 1989 album. Not only are the acoustic melodies mesmerizing and the vocals soothing, but it is an exact cover of Taylor Swift’s 1989 album, just with a Ryan Adams spin. My day began with me oversleeping, followed by the daily dig through my half unpacked suitcase for a clean outfit causing me to be late for work.  Already flustered because I was late, I…

My Failed Attempt at Being Anti-Social (Media)

Life Travel

I confess, I failed.  I had every intention of taking a break from social media this weekend, but Lexington was just so beautiful, I had to share, #SharetheLex.  At the end of the day, I blame Lexington, it’s not my fault at all. I did surprisingly well on Day 1 due to the lack of cell service, but that night after a couple amazing drinks at Coles 735 Main, I fell off the wagon.  It was all downhill from there. …

Goodbye World, I'm Disconnecting from Social Media

Life Travel

The time has come, I am finally taking a much needed vacation to Lexington, Kentucky with my fiancé.  It will give us a chance to spend some quality time together as well as disconnect from the world, something we both have a very hard time doing.  He is guilty of checking emails and answering client phone calls after hours whereas I also have this issue, but my greater problem is social media. I’ll admit it; I think I am addicted…

Orlando King Cobra Found, There Goes My Weekend

Life Like a Local

It’s a bittersweet day for Orlandoans.  The King Cobra which escaped in early September has been found and taken back to its owner.  Now how will I discover new coffee shops, bars and fun attractions in Orlando? My weekends just got a little more boring. Thanks to the King Cobra‘s run on the town, I found quite a few spots I plan to frequent more often. That’s a lot of coffee.  I should probably do a post at some point…

All of Orlando is at Disney, why aren't I?

Disney Florida Life Like a Local Travel

You know it’s October in Orlando when all your friends Facebook check-ins are at Epcot Food and Wine Festival.  It’s where every local spends their weekends, and their paychecks.  It doesn’t matter how crowded, how hot or how many hours it takes to find your car at the end of the day, every one is going to do it.  Based on my Facebook, at least 75% of my friends are at Epcot today and a few more headed there now.  After I finish…

27 Dresses, Give or Take

Life

I tossed and turned most the night, which is pretty typical for me, but this was different.  Rather than greeting the day feeling groggy and in desperate need of coffee, I had a million butterflies fluttering in my stomach.  I knew it was going to be a long day.  A long day of trying on wedding dresses. Let me tell you, it’s draining.  Guys have it so easy. I don’t know what was more exhausting, the constant pouring of champagne,…
