Soundtrack to the good ole days

Okay, it’s time for me to be honest about something that I’m sure is obvious to anyone who knows me: I miss Jacksonville. Leaving was so hard, I had to actively not think about the life I left behind because it hurt that much.

With these songs I close my eyes and picture dragging to the beach with some of the best people I’ve ever known. I go back to exploring tide pools, springs, and woods all over the state of Florida. I think about road tripping to Tampa and the Keys, paddling out past the surf on Jacksonville Beach, and pushing my paddle board to keep up with my brother in front of me.

Some of these songs make me cheese so hard my cheeks start to hurt, some bring tears to my eyes as I miss times past, and some make me close my eyes, throw my head back, and take a breath: life keeps moving.
