Living Our Best Life This Summer at Rock Springs Thanks to Racetrac’s New Wintastic Rewards App

**This post about Rock Springs in Kelly Park was brought to you by RaceTrac in promotion of their Wintastic Summer Rewards Program. I received compensation to write this post but all opinions expressed are my own.**

This past Monday I celebrated my 32nd birthday at one of my new favorite places in Florida – Rock Springs at Kelly Park! This tropical, natural oasis is located in Apopka, just one hour away from where we live in New Smyrna Beach, which makes it a super quick and easy day trip. But since i’m a hopeless procrastinator that waits until the last minute to look at trip advisor reviews, I didn’t know that the park fills up to capacity about an hour after it opens… Whoops.

And since we decided to go to this park pretty spontaneously, we were nowhere near prepared for the next morning. But luckily, we had some tricks up our sleeves to help things go a little faster so we could get there before they stopped letting people in.  Continue reading

Last week, the bf and I headed out on a 3 day road trip all around the sunshine state to hunt down the best grilled cheese sandwiches in Florida. After spending too many a few hours online, I became overwhelmed by all the grilled cheese goodness that our beautiful state had to offer. So I did what any blogger girl with 34,000 followers would do and went straight to social media for a little help. After receiving dozens of awesome and unexpected recommendations, Jerm and I compiled our master list, packed our bathing suits (and stretchy shorts), filled up the ole’ Subaru, and headed South to get our cheese on.

Oh oh, and before we begin on this delicious adventure – Please keep in mind that this list is not ordered from best to worst or anything like that. In fact, it’s listed in the order in which we completed our food tour in hopes that you can one day repeat the #FLgrilledcheeseTour if you dare! TBH, I tried to rank them but that sort of hurt my heart. It felt like I was a mom and I had to choose one child over the other or something like that and I just couldn’t. But alas, if you must know which ones reigned supreme, keep reading and I’ll fill you in on our favorites. Continue reading
