Big Cat Rescue

Big Cat Rescue

I think one of the first things we learned about Tampa when we were considering moving here was that it was the home of Big Cat Rescue.  We love big cats. We love cats in general. This love of big cats was definitely cemented on our trip to Africa and seeing these beautiful creatures in […]

Oldsmar Flea Market

Oldsmar Flea Market

Have you ever passed a place dozens of times and always wondered what it’s like inside?  For me, the Oldsmar Flea Market in Oldsmar, Florida, near Tampa, was that kind of place. We decided to stop in yesterday and take a look around. The first thing we can say about it is that it’s big. […]

The museum includes a branch of the Hillsborough County […]

We’re now living only 25 minutes from Tarpon Springs and figured it’d be a fun way to kick off our holiday weekend. The first thing we want to tell you is don’t use the […]

A Little Honeymoon

A Little Honeymoon

We’ve been living in Tampa for almost a month now and we’ve finally settled in enough that we decided to take a little trip to the beach. Amanda asked around at work and the gym to get recommendations for which beach to try first. She got several answers and after doing some research we settled […]
