Surfboard Shopping Turns to Buying

Surfboard Shopping Turns to Buying

It was bound to happen sooner or later.  I finally purchased a surfboard after much deliberation.  My hubby convinced me to go out and spend the money.  As you may know, I have a little trouble letting go of money and especially now that we just went through Financial Peace University. We drove an hour [...]

First Surf Day of the Season

First Surf Day of the Season

Two weekends ago, I made my first trip out to the beach for this year.  The waves were small but we found a bump all the way down at the inlet in New Smyrna Beach.  I'm not sure what to blame but I had a pretty bad day.  It's the first time I wasn't able [...]

Welcome to My First Art Show

Welcome to My First Art Show

The week prior to the show, I dropped [...]

She's been very encouraging and I'm excited to see the finished product displayed in her shop when the painting is complete. I've been considering [...]

I finally made it back out to the beach.  We went RVing at Kathryn Abbey Hannah Park in Jacksonville.   And even though I was a little weird-ed out by the brownish, murky water... I surfed for a bit.  The water is already warm and despite having lost some muscle mass this year, I was [...]

Surf Girl Saturdays

Surf Girl Saturdays

I used to have this routine when heading to the beach with my daughter, Taylor.  We'd get up early, say 7:30 on a Saturday.  We'd pack the cooler, throw our beach bags in the trunk and the surfboards on top of the car.  I'd drive us over to our neighborhood Panera Bread for a breakfast [...]

Surfboard Shopping Part 3

You may be familiar with New Smyrna Beach, FL.  It's a cute little beach front town in Central Florida.  It's our little not so hidden treasure.  We go there at least 3 or 4 times a year for surfing and beach time.  It's definitely one of my favorite places.  A few weekends ago my hubby [...]
