Chances are if you’ve driven over the Florida border, you’ve passed through Lake City, Florida. However, when I tell people that’s where I live, I usually get confused looks in return.
When I first moved here two and a half years ago (wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long!), I didn’t know much about my new home either. With a little exploring I discovered that Lake City is more than just a place you pass through; it’s a destination.

This weekend I spent a few days in beautiful St. Augustine Beach with my boyfriend and his family. We stayed in a condo at the Colony Reef Club that was just steps away from the ocean. The trip was full of sunshine, stunning views, delicious food and tons of memories. Here are some of the highlights:

Did you know that North-Central Florida is the natural freshwater springs capital of the world? Well I had no idea until I moved to Lake City, right smack dab in the middle of North Florida two years ago.
Growing up I was a beach gal all the way. I had never even been to a freshwater spring until my boyfriend brought me to Lake City for the first time four years ago. Now, I can’t get enough! During the warm months we try to go to as many springs as we can. Each one has something different to offer.

I’ve been going to Disney World for as long as I can remember, and I had never been to the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa up until two weeks ago.
I’ve always wanted to go, and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my little sister’s birthday than with a delicious brunch at the Grand Floridian Café!
Plus, the Happy Floridian at the Grand Floridian; sounds like a perfect match to me!

Disney days are the best days, am I right?
This Saturday I went to Epcot to enjoy the International Flower and Garden Festival! This is by far my favorite Epcot festival, with the park being transformed into a wonderland of beautiful flowers and toparies sculpted into Disney characters.
My sister and I decided to take advantage of the stunning scenery to take photos for her college graduation announcements. So I packed up my camera bag and my sister wore her adorable Mickey Mouse graduation cap ears and we headed to Epcot.

There’s nothing more fun than being a tourist in your own state. Even though I’ve lived in Florida for my whole life, there are still so many places I have yet to explore.
Last weekend I went to Silver Springs State Park for the first time. Located just north of Ocala, it’s a stunning park known for its famous glass-bottom boats.
Yep, you read that right. Silver Springs hosts tours in boats whose bottoms are made of glass, giving visitors a perfect view of the pristine fresh water that runs through the springs.
I had never even heard of Silver Springs until a few weeks ago, when my boyfriend mentioned wanting to visit the park where he used to go on field trips when he was a kid. It’s about an hour and a half from where we live, so last weekend I packed up my camera bag and we headed out for a day of adventure.
