Carnival Triumph Cruise

Posted on

In January, Josh and I booked out a four-day cruise from an email offer that we couldn’t refuse.  How time passes so quickly, I’ll never know, but we went on that cruise this past weekend.  I’m truly grateful for the time we had together.  I mean really together.  How often do people get to turn […]

Smoke Dreams Part 2

Barbecue

If you haven’t read my first Smoke Dreams post, this won’t make much sense. Real quick- or “quick and dirty” to get you up to speed.  I have like five grills, almost, but no stick burners (translation – smoker that cooks only wood-fired barbecue).  I finally got one this week, and I’m super stoked.  I’ve spent a few […]

Smoke Dreams

For many years- actually… many, many years- I’ve dreamed of owning my own restaurant.  When I was a teen, my first jobs all started in restaurants.  I’ve done it all: washing dishes, working the fry station, cooking on the line, waiting tables, and managing the front of house.  I worked in chain restaurants (I was a traveling corporate […]

This past weekend was filled with fun and family in Charlotte, North Carolina. Why do the weekends speed by so quickly? This trip was a special one- not only because Josh’s cousin Jonathan was getting married- but because I got to meet a lot of Josh’s family for the first time. When I’ve mentioned to […]

Big Bend Road Trip – Primera Parte

Posted on

Cait and I decided to take a road trip a while back.  We had no real intention or direction of where we were heading, just knew we wanted to go somewhere we’d never been before.  Maybe six or seven weeks ago, we were looking at google maps of national parks (because we are both HUGE fans […]

Boat Weekend- August 27, 2016

Posted on

Josh and I had a pretty active weekend. From Josh’s damaging fall to the discovery of Neill beach, I guess you could say it was pretty epic. But, we’ll start the post with the gnarly nosedive because that is, unfortunately, how the weekend started. Friday night, Josh and I went to the dock to gather […]

The Proposal

Posted on

If you read the West Palm Beach blog post, let me start out by saying that Joshua did NOT blow it. The night was exactly how I would have imagined it. Although Josh and I discussed that we’d love to be engaged this year, it came as a total surprise that he had this up […]

Cait and I had been planning a trip to West Palm Beach for quite some time to visit her family and were both excited to see some real deal south Florida blue water.  Unfortunately, our flight from New Orleans to Atlanta was massively delayed, and fortunately our flight from Atlanta to West Palm was also […]
