We are the Gazdecki Family!
Native Michiganders, we decided to jump on the opportunity of relocating our family to Central Florida in 2008. Growing up a Disney Girl, how could I say no?
Not only do we enjoy travel and Disney, but we also are big fans of Marvel, Star Wars, and of course….Michigan Football!! We plan to share our travel adventures both big and small, unique breweries, small town life, and simple things that bring us happiness.
It’s pretty safe to say, I am the instigator behind the majority of our hair-brained, crazy adventures. Lucky for me, I have a man that supports me, and builds me up. I am a lover of many things, and continue to learn more about myself every year. A partial list of things that bring me joy are spending time with family, music, theatre arts, historic small towns, road trips, the great outdoors, natural health, self growth, coffee shops (that serve tea of coarse), and finding great breweries.
The family coach, as I like to think of him. When we started dating, he was a middle school football coach. His love of coaching shows through in his management style at work. He continues to lead others on a path of becoming better, not just at work, but in life. To say he is a Michigan Football fan, could be kind of an understatement, since it is what brought us together. He is quite the food stylist, continuing to learn more about smoking on his Big Green Egg, and coming up with his own recipes. He continues to find the best places to eat during our travels. You can also catch him checking out the breweries with me.
Meet our “Drama Queen!” Her love of singing and theatre sparked at a young age. She joined church choir, and was in her first play at the age of 7. There is no fear with her, and the love has continued. She is a graduate of Florida School of the Arts. This girl loves adventure, so you can find her helping us behind our “Friends in Brew Places” Instagram page. Along with sharing her life in Michigan.
A graduate of the welding program at our local technical college as a high school graduate, she is navigating her way through a man’s world pretty good I must say. Although an introvert, she loves taking on a challenge and trying new things. She’s typically right with me on all my ideas. Her goal is to eventually apply her welding into creating art.
Our one that will never grow up, she keeps us on our toes. She loves baking, Marvel, comics, art, and Anime. Jo spends lots of her spare time sketching, and is taking art classes at Florida Film Academy. Planning to attend the local tech college her senior year for the pastry art program, she is still deciding her future direction. With our older two either gone or in the work force, she is my partner in crime when it comes to visiting new local places for the blog.
Lucky & Chloe
Lucky is our rescue from a family friend, and Chloe is our 13 year old snuggle bug, YorkiePoo. They are perfect at welcoming us home from long and short times away. Car rides are their favorite!! Often taking walks around our local trails. When we can take them on trips, we do.
