A little more about me:
I am from Michigan and now live in Florida. I love Disney, Universal Studios, all the fun theme parks we have here and the beaches, but also enjoy the “unsalted” life up north too. One of my favorite way to experience Florida and Michigan is by camping – I love camping! It is a family tradition that started when I was just a few years old and I am loving passing down the fun family bonding to my kids.
I have been blogging since September 2010, and it has helped me in so many ways! I started blogging with my first website, HavingFunSaving.com, because I wanted to share my passion for helping others. My husband had suffered 4 pay cuts, and we had lost our health insurance for myself and the kids, so saving money turned into a huge priority for me. It was actually how I helped us survive. I then shared savings tips with local moms groups, churches, friends, family, and, of course, my fabulous readers!
I love creating family-friendly and healthy recipes, checking out products, and sharing things to do around Florida and beyond with my friends, family, and you….so that is what you will find here on Food Wine Sunshine. My original intent still exists, but has evolved into savings for everything to do with your family – whether it saving you from figuring out what is for dinner tonight, saving you from deciding what to do this weekend, or simply saving you time to enjoy yourself!
I have two incredible children who keep me busy when I’m not working that always make me smile. My daughter loves to read, play with her friends and is currently trying out volleyball. My son is very creative, I love watching him build his latest invention, which right now is a motorized skatebaord! He also loves to play baseball. 😉
When I’m not blogging, you will find me running (three half-marathons down and planning my next!), Jazzercising, playing word games, drinking coffee, enjoying a nice glass of wine, cruising around in my JEEP, camping, or spending time with my friends and family.
