Jersey Boardwalk Pizza

Location: Key Largo, Fl

If you’re looking for good pizza in Key Largo, Jersey Boardwalk Pizza is the place to go! The pizza is delicious, and they have other options as well. Our son got wings one night, and we shared a calzone and chicken Caesar salad another. It was all good; however, our favorite was the pizza! YUM!

They have a few booths inside, and they have plenty of patio seating outside. Take your pick, and go get you a slice! 😉 They actually have 3 locations to choose. Check them them out here.

Palmer’s
Location: Peachtree City, Ga.


Location is really cool. Atmosphere and staff is great. Food is amazing. The brisket sandwich, coupled with the sweet potato fries and street corn is off the chain! The sweet tea is truly Southern, and the key lime pie with sour cherries is simply amazing.


Now look, after our recent trip to The Keys, I might have become a bit of a KLP (Key Lime Pie) snob and really have a narrow preference on the “best” key lime pie, but anyone who starts taste testing them, especially in The Keys, will inevitably develop this type of persnicketiness. Lol. 😂<
owever, if you drop by Palmer's, you've got to have this on your "must taste" list. I'm not even a great big fan of cherries, but this thing is delicious! If it was served alone, I'm pretty certain the key lime would really be sweeter than I'd like; however, it's a perfect pairing with the sour cherries, which are almost candied in texture but have a distinct soured cherry taste. All this with the traditional graham cracker crust is a perfect match, and the taste combination is absolutely amazing.<

The Pilot House Restaurant

Location: Key Largo, Fl

We found this restaurant as we were leaving Key Largo on our last day of vacation, and we were so glad we did! It was amazing. The view was perfect. It was cool to watch the boats come in and out of the marina, and the atmosphere was very cool. The wait staff were very hospitable and kind, and the food was amazing. We decided it was one of the best meals we had all week, and we put it on our “return list” for the next time we came.

Hope Is Free

There is Hope, and it won’t cost you a thing…

Hope is here. It is available to all. It is unconditional, and it costs you absolutely nothing.

The Hope I have is redeeming  it is strengthening. It is unwavering, and it is unifying.

This Hope that I have found isn’t like others propegated by many. It is not gained only by the rich and elite. It does not have to be earned by hard work or good behavior, and it is definitely isn’t obtained by violence to those who do not believe.

This Hope is for any who will ask and believe. It will give you peace amidst the storm. It will sustain you through life’s most difficult journey, and it will even give you Hope for eternity.

If You Are Over 30…

Ok, so, I’m going to kind of make a funny here with some hyperboles and be a little exaggerate simply to make a point…

ONCE YOU’RE OVER THE AGE OF 30, THERE’S SOME THINGS YOU JUST NEED TO LET GO OF, BECAUSE YOU’RE LOOKING KIND OF GOOFY AND REALLY MAKING YOURSELF OUT TO BE A FOOL. 😳😑

This though has probably been triggered, because I’ve come across a few of these lately, and I’ve been reminded what “immaturity in an old shell” really looks like. I guess, you could just call me old fashioned, or maybe you’ll charge me with too much conservatism. If so, that’s ok, but really, if you are guilty of the following and don’t think you need a little change, you might just want to step back and see yourself through the eyes of the older and younger generations.

If you’re over the age of 30, please stop:

1. Cussing out the cashier or waiter, because he or she didn’t do something correctly while ringing up your bill.

Are you telling me you’ve never made a mistake, especially after a long day at work?

2. Making a scene in public because your momma hurt your feelings, the teacher disciplined your child or someone just cut in line in front of you.

Really? Show some respect for yourself and other people. Take up the confrontation with whom it needs to be settled.

3. Miniskirts and midriffs.

The company you’re trying to attract will be on the prowl, regardless of your attire, and the company you need to be attracting won’t be interested in all that.

4. Various brands or quotations on your rear end.

Umm, no. Just simply don’t.

4. Selfies taken in front of the mirror of your bathroom.

You’re not 15, and this isn’t the glamour shots of the 80s. Somethings just need to stay in the past.

5. Partying all night and all day, especially when you have children who need care.

You’re a momma or a daddy now. Act like it. Their lives may depend on it.

6. Living at home with mom and dad.

You outgrew that baby bed for a reason. It might be tough, but you can do this thing called life.

7. Gaming all night and skipping out on your job.

The old proverb is true, “A man who won’t work won’t eat.” This culture’s society will try to convince you otherwise with the welfare and entitlement mentalities, but do not be deceived. We all need to work if we desire to eat.

8. Making out in the grocery store parking lot when you should just go get a room.

This was all fun and games in high school, but when you’re older, it just seems you’ve got way too much to prove or maybe you’re cheating on your spouse.

9. Skipping out on your family, because you just “wanna have fun” or “sow your wild oats.”

So much could be said here, but I’ll just keep it to two words: GROW UP! Yes, I did shout that, in case, you didn’t hear me.

10. Stealing, thievery, lying or cheating.

This is not okay at any age, but when you have crossed this threshold of life, you seriously look like a loser. Get a life. Get a job, and be a man not a parasite.

Yeah, maybe I am just “old school.” Maybe I am just a little bit of a “fuddy dud.” If that’s what I am, simply, because I choose to make solid choices for my life and my family, well, that’s okay with me. Call me what you will.

I’ll just settle to being a little traditional, a bit old fashioned and conservative, or maybe, I’m just secure in my decision to grow up, live life with determination and purpose, and move beyond those selfish motives and actions of my more youthful days.

Harry’s Seafood Bar & Grille

Location: Gainesville, Fl.

This was the first restaurant we went to after two weeks in The Keys, and let me tell you, their sweet tea is AMAZING! 😉 The atmosphere is great. The staff is friendly, and the food is delicious. If you’re in Gainesville, Fl., you’ll definitely want to check it out.

Before the meal, they bring fresh bread with this herb butter that is so delicious, you’ll be tempted just to fill up on that and forfeit the meal. However, let me assure you, the meal will be worth your restraint! The burgers are yummy, and the shrimp and grits were my favorite. The grits are made just “Southern style good,” and the shrimp is sautéed just right with just a touch of blackening. Oh yeah. I did get the sauce on the side, because I couldn’t tell by the description how it might be. Sometimes, the sauce can be overpowering and dominate the dish. It ended up being incredible, and I gladly poured it over the shrimp once this picture was taken.

For dessert, you have a plethora from which to choose, and we chose three: the Oreo doughnuts, key lime pie and pecan pie. Prepare yourself for those doughnuts. Oh. My. Word. Your arteries will be screaming before you even take a bite, but your tastebuds will thank you forever. 😂

They were amazing; yet, so rich, I only had two bites (plus, my pick was the pecan pie). My husband liked the key lime pie; however, compared to the other two desserts and the key lime pies we had while in the Keys, I wasn’t much impressed. Now, the pecan pie: WOW! The waiter had said he liked a different pie, but I opted for this one when he said, “It is a little too much pecan for me.” Look, I’m a southern girl, I’m not sure you can have too much pecans. Haha. It was absolutely amazing! I still have cravings for that yummy deliciousness.

Like I said, if you’re in the Gainesville area, and you’re looking for a great meal, Harry’s is the place to go. Check out their Website here.
