I live in Destin, Florida – a quaint resort town with a full fishing fleet and 3 supermarkets. We hit the big time when we got a Hard Rock Café several years back. I’ve lived here since 1999. It doesn’t qualify me as a native, but it does make me a local. (There is a difference.)
I’m raising two boys with my husband while owning a business or two and learning to enjoy life a little more. We enjoy getting out on the water, paddle boarding, flying RC planes (my husband’s hobby), and building elaborate Lego creations (my boys’ hobby). We are also huge sci-fi geeks with a love of technology.
Destin isn’t as laid back as Key West or as high strung as Atlanta. Living here is somewhere in-between. And I love it.
