A Miami Layover

Miami Beach Layover | Happily in Pursuit

When travelling to or from Cayman, unless you snag one of those hard-to-get direct flights, you’re likely connecting through Miami International Airport. If you’re really lucky, like Ben and I were last year, you’ll have an overnight layover with 24 hours to explore Miami.

Life Changing Magic of Minimizing

I’m sharing some of my favourite photos of our stunning apartment view in this post because behind me our apartment is a ridiculous mess. Rubbermade bins line our hallway, clothes are strewn over the bed and items like golf clubs and camping gear are taking over the living room. It’s packing time! To help with […]

A New Pursuit

Over the past weeks, our conversations have moved from “Are we doing this?!?” to “We’re doing this!!” From “Can we do this?!” to “Let’s do this!” We’ve gone from flip flopping and doubts and excuses for not going, to plunging head first into making it happen. We’re moving to Cayman! Even though we made this decision […]
