Life Update

Perdido Key via LashesandDashesAs I mentioned on Saturday we are moving to Pensacola Florida. The day is quickly approaching and time is dwindling, we have less then three days before the big move. Yikes! I think we are in good condition and just about ready. iTunes Tuesday has been cancelled for a while with the move and all but hopefully will be back soon 🙂 This also means that I may not be posting as often as I would like for the next few weeks while we get settled in. I am so excited for this new season in our lives, I know God is orchestrating all of this!

When we announced we were moving several people asked how I felt about all of this, and all I can say is I could not be happier about this change! Pensacola is where I grew up so it is like moving home for me, it is where so many of my best memories were created. We have so many friends there that are more like family then friends. We have moved so many times and I still love moving but I think I am ready to settle down in one place for a while! After living in the Atlanta area for the past couple of years I can honestly say that I do not think big city life is for me. I learned so much here in Atl and will be taking all of the experiences with me. I had my first real  job here, I was able to Assistant Direct two children’s musicals with hundreds of children and I loved getting to be involved in Children’s Church! As God opens the doors in Pensacola I look forward to all that He has in store for me and how I can be a Blessing to others.

Before I sign off,  I thought I would leave you with a picture of Arianna helping us pack. She has no idea the fun that will be coming her way in the next few days 😉

My Most Favorite Place in the World

Today I thought I would let you in on my most favorite place in the world, Perdido Key, Pensacola, Florida. I grew up in Pensacola, and its my home!  After moving away from Pensacola eight years ago I have missed it so much and I am always counting the days until my next trip back.  It is absolutely beautiful with the sugar sand beaches and most unforgettable sunsets. When we moved to the Atlanta area we finally had a chance to go back home for a visit.  After being gone for so long it was like seeing a long lost friend which by the way when we visited last August we had a wonderful reunion with many long time friends!

A beautiful Sunset at Johnson’s Beach.

Johnson’s Beach is unrivaled in my mind for its beaches, Pensacola has two main beaches Johnson’s Beach which is on Perdido Key and Pensacola Beach which is also on an Island. Pensacola Beach is beautiful but is much more commercial and is a party beach, Johnson’s Beach is a National Sea Shore so it is protected from any building. Johnson’s has miles and miles of pristine sugar white beaches and turquoise water! Even on a rainy, cloudy day it shines like no other!

Check out I ♥ Perdido Key on Facebook, I love following their page to keep up with all of the Events on Perdido Key! They have some of the most amazing pictures of Perdido Key, I think you will truly enjoy it!

Beautiful Sunrise on Perdido Key.

There are few hotels right on Perdido Key but many Condos for very reasonable prices! When we stay right on Perdido Key we use VRBO to find a condo to stay in, we have been very pleased with their service!

A few of my favorite places to eat on Perdido Key are Lillian’s Pan Pizza, they have the most amazing Kansas City BBQ Chicken Pizza I have ever had, and I have tried countless BBQ Pizza’s! The Oyster Bar is another great choice for a very nice meal looking out at the Intercoastal, the Seafood platter is delish!  Whenever we want a quick meal that is amazing and laid back we go to Sunset Grill at Holiday Harbor, my parents absolutely love their Mahi-Mahi Fish Tacos and the grilled chicken sandwich is yummy.  Needless to say they have the most beautiful Sunsets that you can view right from there outdoor patio while enjoying the amazing
