First blog post

Hi folks and welcome to my blog, My Outdoor Florida!  I am so excited to embark on this journey of chronicling and documenting my families’ adventures in the great state of Florida.  As a Northerner raising Florida born babies, I wanted to learn as much about the history of Florida as I could so that my kids understood their heritage.  Along the way, our desire to explore the state with our children morphed from day trips, to weekend trips and eventually camping for days on end.  I quickly recognized that I wanted to preserve these moments, not just through pictures, but through a record of what places are worth another visit, what places are a MUST for others visiting the state and what unexpected treasures we found.  I started out just writing the pros and cons of each place we visited but it soon became something more personal and I realized that if I wanted to really preserve and share our adventures, I should publish what I wrote.  So why not a blog?!

I hope this  blog serves two purposes, to educate others on all the great outdoor activities Florida has to offer, as well as chronicle and preserve my families explorations as a living time capsule for my kids.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it!
