Florida

Birdland

We know its spring (or at least its getting close) when the boys of summer start stretching their legs in the warm winter sun of Florida. I grew up in Maryland when we only had one baseball team and that was the Baltimore Orioles. The first professional baseball game I ever attended was at the […]

MIAMILAND?

MIAMILAND!  may market itself as the largest theme park in Florida, but that’s not quite it. The new creative branding initiative in the hopes to attract visitors to more than just is vibrant downtown and top-notch beaches. The MIAMILAND! campaign is there to remind us that not too far from downtown you can immerse yourself […]

Amanda finally became manager and with that took on the task of whipping her own social media team into shape. We found our literal dreamboat […]

A Day Trip to the World

You’re close but we are talking about the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow or EPCOT for short. The vision for EPCOT was to include an urban […]

The Gulf (Stream) War: A Sail to the Bahamas

  We’ve been teasing my sailing adventure with my sister and brother-in-law for some time now and it’s time to share some details. I arrived in Fort Lauderdale after driving across the Everglades in a rental car about a week and a half ago to meet Andi, Matt, and their crewmate Sam. I was geared […]
