So, I was sitting in line at an Apopka drive-thru and I saw the strangest thing…A peacock! Oddly enough, it flew in front of my car and landed in the empty lot by the restaurant. I had no idea that was even a thing!

So far during our time here in Florida we have seen many alligators, sandhill cranes everywhere, all the random little birds that only Florida has, a wild boar, an otter in our back yard and now the peacock!

Florida living at its best!

About The Author

I am the mom of the typical American family that did a not-so-typical thing! We moved 1000 miles south of our hometown to a city we knew little about. Those first few weeks were crazy! I didn't go anywhere without putting the address into my GPS. I drove the wrong way on the Turnpike & the 408 and at one point ended up in Winter Park when I was headed to Winter Springs! We struggled with everything from finding doctors and dentists to determining where to grocery shop. Every trip to get gas or dinner was a new exploration and adventure. Within a few weeks, however, we had made a serious dent in our "To Find" list and started to feel a little confident in this new city. Today, It has been nearly 2 years since we pulled that moving truck into Orlando and we all couldn't be happier or more settled! This isn't the path for every family...that's for sure. But if you are prepared for the same journey, hopefully I can be a resource for you so you don't end up in Hunter's Creek when you are trying to go to Altamonte Springs!
