Memorial Day Weekend in Sarasota

When one thinks of Memorial Day Weekend, images of the beach and backyard barbecues spring to mind; however, Memorial Day is so much more than that. Memorial Day is a day to think of, remember, and honor those who have fought {and continue to fight} for our freedom in the United States; a day to realize how blessed we are due to the sacrifice of others and their families.

Exploring Hawaii

My trip to Hawaii was incredible. Come find out how we spent our time in the beautiful island!

When I think of Hawaii, images of sand, surf, and sun pop into my head; and the island did not disappoint! Surreal doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel when I think about the fact that I actually visited the 50th state. Hawaii is made up of several islands, and if you’ve been keeping up with my posts, you’ll know that my sister, Brit, and I visited the island of Oahu. Continue reading “Exploring Hawaii”

Making a Splash with Olympians

Before anything else, you have to understand I have long standing relationship with the swimming community. I was introduced to the pool at the age of 10, and since then, I’ve never looked back. I swam my way through middle school, high school, and even college. After those last 4 years, I was done; however, swimming has an addictive quality. After spending about 13 years in the sport, it was impossible to just drop it cold turkey. One thing led to another and I ended up coaching with my club team.

Getting to Know the Georgia Aquarium

I’ve lived in the Atlanta area for about 14 years, and today was the first time that I’ve been to the Georgia Aquarium. I’ve had a few opportunities to go; however, when presented with the price of The Coca-Cola Factory ($16) or the Aquarium ($32), the Coca-Cola Factory won out. {They are right next to each other, so when buying tickets in person, it is from the same ticket window}.

Anyway, tonight, one of my best friends, Vika, and I were able to visit the Aquarium. We purchased our tickets online beforehand, for there is a small discount when you do so. We also paid for parking online…this saves you $1, but hey, every dollar counts. Continue reading “Getting to Know the Georgia Aquarium”
