Coffee Talk Mondays | Fort Walton Beach, Florida

I just dropped off some friends at the Destin airport so now it’s time to play a little catch-up Coffee Talk on the blog! šŸ™‚ I love hosting family and friends in our Florida home. And the beach days this past weekend has me craving for more!!!

This month is going to fly by quickly, and I’m preparing for more guests this coming weekend. šŸ™‚ I cannot wait to share the Gulf coast beaches with them!!! I still pinch myself that I get to live here! šŸ™‚ See why below!!!

THE SWEETER MEMORIES FROM THIS PAST WEEK

BACHELOR NATION?

Bachelor Nation? Uhhhhh … what the HECK just happened last Monday?! I am a Madison fan all of the way, but I really didn’t see them together ā€” BUT seeing Peter’s parents react the way they did on national TV had all of us speechless! Do they not remember meeting her on the first date and how sweet/personable she was then? Goodness. I wouldn’t be surprised if news comes out that Peter and Hannah Brown are together.

FRIENDS IN FLORIDA!!

What a fun weekend!!! A couple of my childhood friends escaped the chaos happening in Virginia and California and came to Florida to visit. šŸ™‚ I showed them the beauty of Navarre Beach, Crab Island, and 30A! Alex was gracious enough to be our captain and take us to Crab Island on a perfect March day!!! šŸ™‚ I cannot wait to have my friends, Brandy and Jeff, visit this weekend!!!

On a side note ā€” There’s something about mustaches and tacos… HAHA! The smiley taco float came out for its first appearance of the year this past weekend!!! YAY!

CORONA-WHAT?

Can I just live in a paradise bubble and ignore everything that is happening around the world, please? I have no words right now… I’m trying to navigate my business through this one day at a time, but I want my couples to know that I’m TOTALLY here for them!!!! <3 I’m praying every day that my spring weddings will go as planned! XOXO!
