South Florida Weekend Trip to See Gardens and JANE

38691462011_18ec443084_k

Jane Goodall is one of my heroes, so when I found out that a documentary about her was being released, I knew I had to see it immediately. The only problem was that there wasn’t a showing scheduled in Orlando. Since I was overdue for my yearly trip to South Florida, I decided to plan a trip to Coral Gables so that I could see this.

Exploring Marie Selby Botanical Gardens as an AHS Member

I’m a big fan of gardens. I love flowers and other plants, I love bugs and spiders, and I love all the other critters that like to scurry around the wildlife in a garden, so gardens are kind of my happy place.

Disney Beach Engagement

6b

“I want to practice couples photography,” I told my friend Meredith.

I really had wanted to take more photos of people, after I had enjoyed doing a beach yoga photo shoot a few weeks prior.

However, there was an ulterior motive behind my photo shoot suggestion of going to the Grand Floridian on the first morning of Meredith and Jake’s Disney World vacation.

May the Fourth Be With You

If  you know me in person, then you already know that there is no such thing as too much Star Wars, in my opinion. I’ve read almost all of the books in the new canon, I’ve watched all the movies dozens of times, and I even took up running because of Star Wars.

Favorite Florida Vegan Food of 2017

39424153302_0a4f05060c_o

For people with eating limitations, vacation can be a mixed bag. However, it’s starting to get easier and easier to find vegan food throughout the world, and Florida is a great example of a vacation destination that is bursting with plant-based options!

I’m hoping that this post can inspire some of Florida’s vegan visitors (and residents) as well as make omnivores aware of how delicious vegan food in the Sunshine State can be, in hopes that they will consider reducing their meat consumption to help the environment.

A Morning of Beach Yoga

1

My absolute favorite thing about being a teacher is seeing visible progress in my students. It is so rewarding to be able to compare a student’s current piece of work with a past piece of work and see how much they have improved.

A Photo Tour of the Mead Gardens Wildlife

34721606053_76db78b885_k

Nestled in a quiet area of Winter Park, a city just north of Orlando, is Mead Botanical Gardens. When I first visited this gem in 2015, I immediately knew I wanted to spend more time here, but it wasn’t until the spring of 2017, when I lived a little closer, that I went back for my second visit.

A Vegan Feast with Chef TJ

Is it silly to have a bucket list item revolving around vegan food? Maybe so, but that didn’t stop me from spending years drooling over the idea of having Chef TJ cook his famous multi-course vegan meal for me!

Photo Essay: Celebration, Florida

39018095205_5f07c62d4f_o

I first fell in love with the perfect little town of Celebration three years ago. For a while, I was visiting it as often as I could, but then eventually I lived there for about a year and a half. Although I’ve spent so much time walking around my little town with a camera, I don’t have a lot to say about Celebration other than what I said in my original post, in which I gushed about how perfect it is. (Unless you count this cheesy little video I made from one of my nature walks there.)
