A Walk in the Park... Literally

We went for a walk in the park a while ago, and I'm just now getting around to sharing some photos from that day. After living in the Tampa Bay area for just over a year, we thought it was about time we actually visit downtown Tampa instead of just making assumptions about it.

We were pleasantly surprised by the amount of activity in and around Curtis Hixon Park in downtown Tampa. Not to mention, I was excited by number of museums that surrounded the riverside park. Now I'm itching to get back downtown in order to visit the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts and the Tampa Museum of Art. We honestly had no idea what to expect out of Tampa, but we found a lovely little gem in Curtis Hixon Park and the museums that surround it.

now it's super short ... for me at least }

Have you ever been to Tampa, Florida?

The RNC will be in Tampa in about a week, so we'll be staying away from downtown for a while.
Large crowds, long lines, and heavy traffic are something we're happy to avoid when we can.

Happy Monday!
Do you have any fun plans for this week?


  1. I love simple day dates like this. We really want to visit Florida soon! Also, your new haircut looks awesome! It's chic and edgy, not to mention all the shampoo saving haha :)

  2. Nope, never been to Tampa, looks like you found a sweet little place to slow down and take in the beauty and fresh air though! Happy Monday to ya!
