Hey y’all! I’m Molly and I was born and raised right here in Destin, Florida. Growing up I never had plans of living here as an adult. I was going to get my degree (from the University of Florida- Go Gators!), move to a big city, and be an independent career girl. Plans change, as they tend to do, and I met the love of my life and moved back to Destin. We’re currently raising our three kids just steps from the Gulf of Mexico and minutes from both sets of grandparents. Not too shabby.
Destin has definitely grown up in my lifetime, but it’s still the charming little beach town it always has been. We have a thriving seafood industry and an incredible fishing fleet. Our restaurants are some of the best in the world and are run by hard-working local folks. You won’t find fish or shrimp any fresher, but it doesn’t end there. Whether you’re in the mood for steak, Italian, sushi, or Mexican (my personal favorite), you’ll find it all here and it’s all delicious.
I’m a teacher-turned-stay-at-home-mom to Julia, Mac, and Miles. We spend our days exploring the Emerald Coast and reporting back to you with the best of the best. I love finding family-friendly restaurants, festivals, parks, beaches, and other hidden gems, and then sharing them with our friends, families, and visitors. Our little part of Florida has so much to offer and we have the best time discovering all of it.
Thanks for stopping by! Whether you are a local or visitor, I hope you find the information on my site helpful. Let me know if you have questions or suggestions for us to try out. The kids and I are always looking for new adventures.
