Magnolia Square Market: Take home the Grapefruit Beer from Epcot Food and Wine Festival

There are many reasons I love living in Seminole County. Sure my commute to work is a pain in the rear, but on the weekends I get to enjoy all the wonderful things that are offered here, away from all the tourist attractions.

Sanford Saturday Night

Another Saturday night, another debate.  Yet again, the desire to go dancing at Universal Citywalk enticed me.  My husband, however, had to work the next morning and preferred a more low-key evening.  And so, we ventured to Sanford, Florida. Certainly, there are parts of Sanford that I would not send my worst enemy to, but… Continue reading Sanford Saturday Night
