My “Personal” Bio:
Thank you for visiting! I am blessed to call the sparkling emerald beaches and breathtaking sunsets of the Gulf Coast “home” and hope you enjoy your time here as much as I love living here. I was never a “beach girl” until we moved to PCB (after growing up in a beach town on the east coast of FL for 20 years!)
I am a Momma to 3 beautiful children, with #4 on the way! Our oldest daughter is married to the best son-in-law we could have asked for and we have 3 younger boys. I am married to my best friend and my biggest cheerleader. Without him, this dream of mine would not be possible. Like really! I know everyone says that, but he really is the other half to my craziness!
A little about me?
I love my coffee in the morning & wine in the evening 😉
I am a neat freak at home and can actually manage all stages of laundry in one day if I’m super motivated, although I would much rather chase a sunset, play some type of sport with my boys or beg them to snuggle instead.
If I get a day off, you can bet I’m still at the beach watching the sunset.
I love to fish (maybe more than my hubby – he says “I doubt that”)We own an island home in Roatan Honduras, a condo here in PCB and two cabins in the North Georgia Mountains (Blue Ridge, GA to be exact). While we use these as our “escape”, we also rent them out for short-term vacation rentals. Exit Strategy– Roatan, Honduras The Boardroom– Panama City Beach, FL Five Cubs Cabin– Blue Ridge, Georgia Lookout Lodge– Blue Ridge, Georgia Being in front of the camera can be intimidating- I get it! But I guarantee you will enjoy our time together and you won’t feel as though you are working with a stranger, we will be more like friends and family! I will snuggle your babies, make farting noises, chase birds and tell your husband he owes you a bottle of wine afterwards!
