People: Nate Baranowski

Nate Baranowski, chalk (and other mediums) artist.  My son Connor and I discovered this humble young man and his adorable wife at a chalk festival in Highland Park – Florida, not Texas.  His work was stood out as the absolute best of everyone there, bar none.  He travels around the world producing this extraordinary work that ceases to exist the next time it rains.  Boggles the mind.  Fortunately I had the foresight to hire him to paint a mural on my garage door when I lived in St. Petersburg, so at least that will be around for awhile.  And fortunately he had the foresight to capture that process and it’s kind of amazing to watch.

Places: Musacancun

Musacancun.  Are you friggin’ kidding me?  I never thought I’d be going to Cancun, but if someone had told me there was an underwater museum, I’d have already booked my next trip!

Check it out then let me know when we’re going….I’ll be sure to bring my flippers!


Things: Flipsidez

Are you kidding me?  These are for you, Rhonda, but honestly, they have all kinds.  As you can imagine, I want the ones that say Don’t Worry on one and Be Happy on the other.  They’ll also custom make them with your name or whatever.  Talk about a great gift for that person who has everything!  Wrap those up with an airplane ticket somewhere warm and see what it gets ya!
