Photography Walk: DJ Wilcox

If you are looking for a new place to hike in Ft. Pierce, you might not be familiar with this nature trail:  DJ Wilcox Natural Area on Old Dixie Highway.  The hike takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour (depending on if you take the full trail--2.3 miles--or the half trail).  The hike begins with an alligator pond (with at least one alligator in it) and contains many Florida native plants and animals.

Out with the Old...Installing the New


Continuing the spirit of home improvement, we recently replaced the ceiling fan in my bedroom.  The fan was almost as old as I am and the chain allowing me to turn the light off and on had broken at the source (not fun for sleeping in hot Florida...I had to unscrew the bulb every night if I wanted to fan).  It had to go, and it's replacement:  Hunter 52" Ceiling Fan (Brushed Nickel with Cherry/Maple Blade)

My New Babies

I've lived in the South for my whole life and I'm just now getting a pair of cowboy boots.  Well, better late than never!  These lovely came from John's Feed & Western Supply on Orange Avenue, Fort Pierce, FL.  They don't have a website, they sort of have a Facebook, but they definitely have a fun store with affordable boots.

It begins...

I'm currently creating a new CSS style sheet and a Template for the new site.  Exciting stuff and a lot of work.  I'll try to have some layout sketches uploaded for tomorrow and I have a few costumes that I'll be working on this weekend.  

After I go to a Fur Ball.

Fringed Denim Skirt


I recently bought a short denim skirt from Goodwill and decided that it was a little too short. Solution: add some fringe. And seeing as I needed it for a cowgirl-esque costume, I couldn't think of anything better than white eyelet.

Where Did I Go?

What have I been doing?  I'm looking into moving the blog to its own domain.  But to do this I would have to change the name seeing as candidlykate.com is already taken.  Possible names are sunblossomkate.com or alittlebitofkate.com.  I would love suggestions.

March Overview


I'm a big fan of March.  Starts out with a family birthday, middle is St. Patty's Day (by the way, I'm Irish), and it is the beginning of Spring.  And this year it ends with Easter, one of my favorite food holidays.  So, I hope to make some fun projects and even more delicious meals this month.




Also, this month I will be guest-blogging on Treasures of Fort Pierce.  Check out some of the great businesses in the area or read about interesting people such as this guy.

Goal of the Month: Still working on promotion.
