First of all thank you guys for all your kind messages on the new site update. I’m so happy you guys like the new page too. Hoping to get out the few glitches you guys mentioned. I have a big to do list happening over here. It’s a constant life rotation, isn’t it? Yep. I think so, anyway. This weekend– a short and fast one, but man, what a good one. As I type, I’m in the middle seat of a rather shaky plane. Currently listening to music that makes me endlessly nostalgic and hands clammy from flying nerves, dry from travel. I’m between two people I really care for. All three of us wearing Hawaiian shirts, for no other…

Hi friends! Welcome to the new blog site 🙂 If you read this in a reader or something similar, then you might have no idea what I’m talking about, so feel free to click over to the new ohdeardrea site and check it out! It’s pretty right?!?! And hopefully you guys find it to be very user-friendly. In the end, that was my goal. I wanted you guys to be able to stop in this place and find something that was easy to navigate and by default, end up being something more resourceful. Overall, this  site isn’t changing much emotionally though. Well, I mean, it is in the sense that it’s got me more excited to work on my site…

Hi, friends! It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Things to Do in Florida guide’ — but the timing seemed right with a lot of you guys traveling here — and even emailing me about looking to move here, too. Well, you guys know we love Florida. There’s nowhere else I’d really live here in the States. I mean, I love California, too, but they don’t have the tropical fruit we have 🙂 The list is really endless here in South Florida — I could have easily made a list of 50 things to do here, but let’s not overwhelm with detail – here’s a list of our favorite family friendly things to do in South Florida (and none…

rainy, happy days. in between the rain showers, she made a friend. And named him chocolate. also, it’s ten million degrees out and she’s wearing too many layers. exploring palm beach. sometimes I really like these shelves. I never change them though, just my attitude, haha. beach day. a cloudy beach day, but still a beach day. grateful for it. oh and does anyone else live the water bottle life? We carry at least one (but usually two) everywhere! Never the plastic ones though! We do love love these made by fressko ones! attacking me. more rain. some pink. acas dates in Miami (our favorite vegan Miami places) well, this is a pretty room. and I love these flowers. I…

*this post is sponsored by Bota Box. How was your weekend friends?! It’s STILL raining here. THREE WEEKS of this silliness. Maybe more. I know, I know. I probably complain every summer about it– and I just need to learn to get over it. And I think for the most part— I have been pretttttty good about it… it’s just this three week stretch driving me insane. But even in this stretch, we’ve been going here, there, everywhere— trying to make the best of it…. in raincoats. Or at least with a trunk full of raincoats, just in case. We got a few hours of sun here and there this week. Followed by torrential downpours… and then more sun. On and…

Friendsssss, how are you?! I think I’m falling asleep at desk right now. I haven’t been this tired in along time. I’ve been busy, but I don’t mind. I’m feeling pretty accomplished today– my website is almost done, photos are being taken, travel is coming soon! All good things. I have a lot of thoughts about blogging and social media lately and I’m not sure where or when to ever share them– or if I even should. But maybe? Do you guys even care about those thoughts? Or NAH? Thats one of my things— I’m not ever really sure why you guys wants to see (unless you specifically ask). So I just share all the random photos, and thoughts, and…

Hi friends! I’m tempted to write, “hi pals!” just to mix it up a bit… but who needs that? Do you? Or are we could with continuing the, “hi friends!” theme of every post? You guys are my friends right? Heh. So, speaking of friends… here are some moments with some of my favorite friends. I know I say it over and over, but Claudia was truly one of the first blog friends I made on ohdeardrea. Realistically, I had made blog friends prior to her– but that was with a different blog— not via ohdeardrea. Through ohdeardrea? She was my numero uno. And I’m constantly grateful for it. Since I have known Claudia she has moved 5 times. I’ve…

How are you guys?! Good weekend? I hope so! We ended up with some sun today (Sunday)— and Marlowe ended up at the beach for a while, but I was stuck to my desk all day. Did I tell you I’m updating this website? Like, switching it over to a whole new site… for the first time ever?! Crazy. So I’ve been work, work, working on that. Part of me doesn’t hate the tedious-ness of it… and actually enjoys it. (I’m weird, I know) Though I wish I could be playing with my kid and/or at the beach instead 😉 But soon enough… right? Right. So you guys often ask about what I’m eating. I obviously share What Marlowe Eats all…
