Hi! Mark and Brittany here – Welcome to our endeavor of blogging together!

A little about us – We were both born and raised in Ohio (me-Dayton ~ him-Sandusky) and we met as twenty somethings living in Columbus, OH in 2009. The lack of sunshine and the desire for a total life change led us to pack up everything we owned, quit our jobs and move to St Pete, FL in 2015. A total life change is what we got and we couldn’t be happier!
A large part in choosing to move here (besides it being called the Sunshine State and St Pete being the Sunshine city) was the need to be involved with animal advocacy and we found Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, FL for that. We had been volunteers since 2015 and I was a staff member from 2018-2023 as the online sales manager, photography and marketing as well as a social media contributor until they made the decision to close the sanctuary and relocate the animals. Now it’s time to move on and forward yet again… we can’t wait to see what comes next… but in the meantime – we want to share all the things we love about living in Florida!
Oh and one thing…. WE LOVE DISNEY!
We hope you enjoy following our adventures both big and small, near and far!

The irony of starting a travel/adventure blog during a pandemic is not lost on us. Feeling stir crazy and overwhelmed during these unprecedented times has us day dreaming even harder than we did before. Even though we will be sharing a lot of archive photos and stories for awhile, we still have so much hope…
Since we last spoke, we bought a new house, moved across town, sold our old house, raised 4 baby squirrels full time and countless other time-consuming and emotional events occurred….
Keeping it simple this year after a couple of unsavory years in a row – we’ve decided in 2022 to slow down and be grateful for the smallest things as much as possible.
The first time we have traveled out of Florida since 2020 and it was to visit family in Greenville, South Carolina for a beautiful weekend on Lake Hartwell.
Mark and I were both born and raised in Ohio but we high tailed it out of there in 2015 and swore we would never look back at cold dreary weather. Each of us have made small trips back, but mostly for sad reasons (losses in the family) and not at all since the pandemic…
