Happy Thursday!  I hope you all enjoy your favorite things this weekend.  I’m looking forward to reliving one of my beloved childhood memories – Chocolate Oreo Volcano custard at Culver’s this Saturday!  If you’ve never had custard (or have never visited a Culver’s restaurant) and you’re in the Jupiter area, head on over on Saturday, May 20th – you will NOT be disappointed!

June is going to be a busy month for me and P and I wanted to send a “hello” your way!  There is so much to cover over the next few weeks and here’s a sneak peak: a weekend trip to Melbourne, Florida and another to Tallahassee (recommendations for both destinations welcome!), selecting snorkel gear, the first day of summer, local haunts (hoping to check out Annie’s Italian Ice, the Flagler Depot at Sawfish Park, the new boat ramp and pier at Waterway Park), and days spent by the sea.  My content has been sparse but I’m ramping it up as we head into summer.  Grab your bathing suit, let’s go!
