Didn't I say just Tuesday that I had a feeling amazing things were about to start happening in my life? Well, now I can start sharing some of my great news! First up, check out the incredible Island I'll be visiting off the coast of Georgia in two weeks!
I have been dreaming of going to Cumberland Island for years, literally. I remember working in advising and planning a fake vacation there when I should have been working. I'm so excited I'm finally going and I can't wait to spend a day exploring the island! I'll be there as part of a larger trip to see my brother in Gainesville. He's been a student there at UF for a few years and will be graduating this December. This is probably the only chance I'll have to get down there and see the city before he leaves and I convinced him to spend a day on the Island with me. Any recommendations for what to see/do in Gainesville would be appreciated!
Next up - Breaks State Park!
Located smack dab in the middle of the border between Kentucky and Virginia this state park spans 4600 acres and is billed as the 'Grand Canyon' of the South. I was invited to visit the park a few weeks ago and will be spending a week there in late July. I'm such an avid camper and backpacker that I said 'yes' immediately! They also have a water park and tons of other activities there so I'm looking forward to tons of summertime fun. Has anyone been to the park before?
Finally, I am so proud to announce that I am now an ambassador for Royal Hawaiian Orchards!
This is the first brand I've agreed to represent and it was a no-brainer once I did some research into their business practices (and tasted their products!) Royal Hawaiian products are non-GMO, gluten free and Kosher. They rely almost exclusively on rainfall for irrigation and recycle and reuse almost every part of the nut to fuel their next batch of home-grown macadamias. When I saw the other ambassadors I couldn't believe I'd be included in such an amazing group! I mean, little old me is surrounded by Olympic Gold Medalists, Professional Triathletes and X-Games medalists. Crazy!
Another perk? I get to share the love with you guys :) Until April 30th you can use the code 'Erica' to get 25% off your order. Everything I've tried so far has been incredible but the basic Sea Salt macadamias were gone in about 2 days.
What's the last bit of good news you've received?
