Keys Life 

I’ve been negligent of my blogging duties… It’s been a fun summer. I’ve had my kids all summer long during the day and Grayheart and I continued or arrangement of splitting weekends. During my “time off” from the kids, I mainly spend it in the Keys with Captain. 

Captain usually rents a house each year with some friends for a month in Key West.  I hadn’t been down there in over a decade and forgot just how much fun it is!


90 miles to Cuba!

I am very much into outdoor adventures and grew up around the water. So to be out there snorkeling, boating, fishing, bike riding everywhere and just smelling the salt water… Sigh… It was truly relaxing and restorative.

These lil dudes are everywhere!


See the tarpon?

  I had a fantastic time just relaxing and came back to my kids in such a good mood. It’s amazing what proper rest can do for your soul!

By the way, there’s been a lot going on and I’ve had many ups and downs during the divorce process these last few months. It’s certainly not been all roses and daisies. I’m just sometimes too worked up to even write. I will get back on it but, for now, I’m trying to focus on the positive and things that aren’t so heavy.

  3. I have never been to the keys, but I’m planning on a day or an overnight trip. It’s silly to live so close and never have gone. Lovely pictures.
    Sorry to hear about the frustrations of your divorce, I totally know what that’s like, but it’s awesome that you remembered to have a bit of fun along the way. ❤️

    • Thank you!!
      Btw, I haven’t been active on the blogosphere but I’ve kept up with you when I get emails notifying me of your posts. You’re pretty damn funny and very introspective. I found your comparison of your men fun and interesting to read. As well as your drawings of course! Cheers to your strength. Hope your foot is feeling better. Xo
      And, lastly, I will be in Paris at the end of the month. Would love any recommendations you have! 🙂


      • Oooh, exciting! Paris is a bit like New-York, London, or any major city. You can find anything and everything… It’s beautiful though so just wander around, visit the Louvres and Orsay Museums at the very least… Depends what you like. 🙂
        Thanks for the compliments, and yeah, my ankle is better, I can dance on two legs again 😉 x
        Take care
