JULY??? TIME FLIES FASTER EVERY YEAR!

Boy is that true! I can't believe this is July of 2019 already!! In less than three months I will have been living in Florida for FIVE YEARS!!! I still love it, a LOT has happened in those five years, but I still think this is where I'm supposed to be. I've learned a lot…

ROLLING THROUGH NOVEMBER

Sometimes it really does seem as though life rolls on too fast, we say it a lot,…

JUNE; THE SERENITY OF SUMMER

June does start our serene, summer months in SWFL- I've talked about this before. Most people are gone now, just the locals remain and the occasional tourist or visitor. The farmers markets that I have been frequenting close for season, very few remain open all year. So this means I have plenty of quality time…

MAY; TRANSITION TIME

SO this is the time of year when I start to transition to the quieter, down time of my year. I will be doing three markets through Mother's day; including the two Punta Gorda weekend markets and the Thursday market on Dearborn St. After Mother's Day, I transition to just the weekends for the rest…

SEPTEMBER; PULLING IT ALL TOGETHER

September has my head swirling with so many things!  This month is my last month before our season begins down here, and I go back to work full time. Whether it's a season change, a schedule change, the kids going back to school; when there is going to be a big change, we always have that…

MARCH IS A BIG MONTH FOR FLORIDA!

MARCH is a big month for Florida! It could just be our busiest month of the year! The first month of spring, March has Palm Sunday, Easter, and St. patricks Day all in one! But, for us It's also important because this is when we have the biggest population, between all the snowbirds, the locals,…
