Growing up in central Florida, I took annual vacations to St. Augustine throughout my childhood. I quickly learned to love the combination of both historic charm and the ocean, as well as a deep love for all things Florida—hot and humid summer days, thunderstorms, and the smell of orange blossoms. After meeting my husband, we relocated to St. Augustine where we have been living for the past fourteen years. In 2013 I became a mother. Our family has grown since then, which now consists of our shy school-aged son, feisty toddler daughter, two rambunctious dogs, and ten curious chickens. We are a homeschooling family who enjoy supplementing education with as many outdoor activities as possible.
