Decatur Glassblowing

Disclaimer: I paid full price for this class, and these are my honest opinions.

9:00PM on a Sunday. Most people are either scrambling to finish their homework, getting ready for the week ahead, or already in bed. Usually, those are the activities consuming my Sunday evenings as well – but not on Sunday, October 15. Instead, that night, I found myself at Decatur Glassblowing.

REVIEW: The Georgia Sea Turtle Center

The Georgia Sea Turtle Center, located on Jekyll Island on the coast of Georgia, opened back in 2007. Not only is the center a rehabilitation facility and hospital for sea turtles, but it’s also an educational center raising awareness of the damage that has been done and steps we need to take in order to protect our environment. Mom and I were able to visit the center, and we genuinely enjoyed our time there. Although we did learn a lot about the different types of sea turtles and their life cycles, we also learned so much more about the environment in general. It truly was an eyeopening experience!

As you may or may not have heard, I won a contest! And not just any contest, but the St. Simon’s Food + Spirits Festival Contest where I was able to go and experience new things.
