"Miami Summertime...." Find your perfect piece of Art Work with Creative Gallery

Who else is ready for this cold weather to be over!?  I have lived in Florida for ten years and this is the coldest winter season I remember.  And I'm over it.  
On that note...do you remember my half bath update from last month?  Well I just officially finished it with a piece of artwork that says it all..."Miami Summertime." Ahhhh doesn't that just sound lovely.




I recently got introduced to an amazing company that sells thousands of art work pieces so that you are sure to create your dream gallery wall or find the perfect focal art piece!
Creative Gallery has over 500,000 pieces of art work to choose from! Plus you get to decide if you want it on canvas, on wood planks, glass, even metal! You name it!  
When I first started browsing Creative Gallery I obviously needed to narrow down the categories and without surprise I ended up in the "Beach" section.  There are numerous categories for you to browse through from kids art, typography, maps, architecture, Home …

Front Porch Refresh with Patio Lane!

If Florida could go ahead and turn the heat back on that would be grrrreat! We are currently having our second round of "winter" down here and honestly there is only one reason I'm not enjoying it...it's destroying all my tropical plants and turning all the grass brown.  Now...as far as the cooler temps I actually love them! I'm sure you all have noticed we use our new fireplace outback multiple times a week BUT what I haven't been showing a lot of is our front porch.  Truth be told that's because the chairs we had up front got moved to the back after the pool and patio were finished.  Sooooo the porch (one of my favorite spots) has sat empty.  But not anymore!!
When we first moved into this house there wasn't actually enough room on the small back lanai for all the patio furniture we had.  So my two large arm chairs went to the porch. Which was fantastic.  On the weekends the girls would go to bed and we would have a glass of wine out front etc.

New Year..New Goals!! (Ketogenic Lifestyle)

Only once before ...the months leading up to our wedding back in 2010... did I follow (along with my husband) a strict KETO diet.   This post may contain affiliate links.
Well this year we are both ready to get back into shape and start making better choices that don't only take place four out of the 7 days in a week.
2018 is shaping up to be a great year! We have lots of exciting travel plans, my husband is turning 40, we both have new business goals on our agendas and we not only want all that energy that comes along with a ketogenic lifestyle..we need it!
To get us started and back into the right mind frame I found a great "beginners" book that does a fantastic job explaining how and why the KETO lifestyle works and just exactly what happens to your body.  It also has two whole weeks planned out menu wise...shopping list for the groc…
