Yesterday Kevon and I explored amazing St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. The bulk of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park is all about being at one of the top-rated beaches in America, with some of the oldest and tallest sand dunes on any coast in Florida. Seeing that beautiful turquoise water brought out the “happy dance” in me! We also explored the wilderness coastal trail that was sprinkled with lichen (love), rosemary, pines, Sea Myrtle and Sabal Palms. What a perfect day! “If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere” .  . . Vincent van Gogh

It is a Good Life!


Our favorite place to eat in Mexico Beach is Killer Seafood  . . . Fresh shrimp makes one happy Kevon! I am crazy over the grilled tuna tacos . . . and of course Key Lime Pie! A good life is when you smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are for what you have . . .thank you God!

Mexico Beach, Florida


Kevon and I are in Mexico Beach, Florida for the month of February – a little slice of heaven! The white sand beaches are pristine . . . small friendly community . . . and shells are abundant! Walking the beaches for miles each day has been healing to my body, mind, and spirit . . . “Some people see more in a walk on the beach than others see in a trip around the world”

My big brother Lee passed away early this morning. Now that he has passed away, of course there is emptiness and pain, confusion and maybe even anger at death taking my brother of only 66 years. But in many ways, the gift of Lee’s life is still here with me. He lives on in my memories and in all the lives he touched. Remembering and telling stories about him will help me keep the gift of Lee’s life alive. Thank you God for the blessing of this amazing big brother.
