A Not So Daily Dose of Daisy
Master of living a random, unpredictable life.

It was my birthday yesterday and my wish was to go to the beach. So yesterday morning we packed up the truck. The hardest decision I had to make was what sunglasses to wear. Then we hit the highway and headed to the Gulf of Mexico. Once we hit Corpus Christi we dropped by Justin […]

This morning I dropped JP off at his meeting and I headed out for a few hours of adventure. What would you do in Norwalk, CT if you have about 4 hours to kill? I don’t know about you… but I would go to the beach. And that is exactly what I did. Calf Pasture […]

Today JP, Lily and I took a day trip down to the Gulf of Mexico. There are lots of different beaches to choose from but we always go to Whitecap Beach because it tends to be less crowded than the other beaches. When we started going to this beach a few years ago we made […]
