Are you crafty? Have you ever considered turning your craft into a business? Three local moms did just that. Using social media to promote their creative hobbies, they went from doing crafts for fun and friends to shipping orders all across the country. Besides their own budding businesses, the three things these moms have in common are creativity, passion, and a desire to learn.

I have always been fascinated by science. As a young lad, I took a liking to astronomy and even owned a telescope. Through the years, I have been a big fan of Don Herbert (Mr. Wizard), Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Bill Nye (The Science Guy).

Today’s the day I set off for the biggest adventure of my life – backpacking through Asia! I’ll be visiting seven countries in just under three months and, by some stroke of divine timing, I’ve managed to coordinate my trip to travel the first half with my boyfriend, Stefan (he’s in between jobs and currently abroad) and the second half with my little sister, Julia (she’s a recent college grad).

Whenever I go to a bridal shower and they have that activity where you write down a date night idea for the couple, I always write “Go to the Enzian.” It is by far our favorite movie theater. For movie buffs, the Enzian play classics. For those who like independent films, it’s the only place in town you can see them. The theater even boasts one of the best restaurants and bars in town – Eden Bar. This week, the Enzian is hosting the Florida Film Festival.

Star Wars is a VERY big deal in my house. My husband grew up as a huge fan, and has definitely shared the love with our kids. Truth be told, I didn’t even see the movies until I started dating him in college. I wasn’t sure I’d like them – I’d always been a Star Trek fan. I was surprised, but it’s hard not to fall in love (even a little bit) with something that your partner is so passionate about.
