We moved to a new condo on the beach… had a great week celebrating my birthday… friends (basically family) were near by for over two weeks…Easter with my best friends inlaws…their 40th Anniversary Party…it was a very full month of spending time with people… unpacking… reorganizing and enjoying life in our new location!

Looking into our Office (smaller than our last place but we gained a lot of outdoor work space and a larger living room!)


Just over a month in we are loving our decision to move onto the beach instead of getting a larger house in the suburbs!

We took HUNDREDS of pictures while the Cass Family took their holiday nearby… We really do miss seeing them on a regular basis but cherish the moments we do get to see them here in FL and in MN
(planning on visiting family and friends this June/July)!

Other highlights from the month of April:

– Cordie loooves our beach walks together, walking to a variety of coffee shops to work every Monday

April Showers

It rained for almost two weeks straight as April was coming to an end… Which in Jacksonville usually it would mean it would monsoon than be sunny for the rest of the day… it rarely ended up being sunny-EVER. Which meant lots of good working days for Cordie and I.


We also got a CAR!!!! After months and months of looking, researching for something we could both comfortably enjoy and use, had almost everything we wanted, got good gas mileage…APRIL was the month it happened!


Our first day driving the car… can you tell we were a little excited to finally not be in a car that was from the nineties.. :)

We enjoyed a fun parade to celebrate the ‘opening of the beaches’ we grilled out with some friends and had front row seats which made it a lot of fun interacting with everyone going by.

Our Wedding Video!

It’s been over a year and a half since we got married… As April is ending I got a belated birthday gift from Cordie! Enjoy a snippet of our BIG DAY! We want to Thank everyone who supported us-those near and far.


The first song was written by both of us and produced by the one and only Cordie Walker called “Here in your arms” and the second song is Mumford & Sons “Hopeless Wanderer” The footage was filmed by our friend Jorden Johnson and edited by Cordie.


April. Birthday Celebrations.

One of my older brothers, Bobby flew into Orlando from Austin, Tx the weekend before my birthday and we hung out for a little bit in Orlando before driving back to Jacksonville.

We went to Lake Eola, which is in downtown Orlando… I really wanted to take out a paddle boat as you can see above the boys ended up enjoying it as well… The lake also had all sorts of funky LARGE pieces of art surrounding it…

From there we went to play putt putt, Cordie and I were very surprised at the layout of the course… as it is one of the best we have ever seen and we BOTH got hole in ones… :)

Bobby brought me this AMAZING cutting board for my birthday… I love it.. love having things from my original home state in our home.


We ended up having perfect weather the whole weekend… went downtown to the Riverside Arts Market, rode some beach cruisers… lots of time walking the various beaches, watched the final four with some of our good friends…saw lots of random wildlife… grilled out a couple of times and only got caught once in the rain!

A few days later was my actual birthday and my handsome husband gave me the best day ever! We woke up at 6am to catch the sunrise… saw quite a few dolphins (unfortunately we didn’t capture a good picture) from there we stopped and got donuts and coffee :) went home and worked for a couple hours.. I then got to get a massage… came home to flowers, a cute disney balloon and treats to go see a movie. :) All of my favorite things to do in the same day was pretty lovely.

After our movie we headed to dinner at Maggiano’s. It was a perfect day even though it landed in the middle of the week and I felt very loved by all my friends and family.. Thank you.
