"I don't know."
"No. Not feeling fast food."
Dan and I were getting bored with the chain restaurants. Same old blah, blah, blah. Ironically, that next Monday, my coworker told me about how he and his wife were tired of going to the same chain restaurants, so this year, they started exploring local restaurants. He raved highly about Gulf Coast Seafood Restaurant and told me that we just had to go. "Best seafood restaurant on the Gulf" is what he said.
Dan and I decided to try it out for our Valentine's Day dinner. It was amazing! As we chatted over dinner, an idea hit me. Why not start a blog about local restaurants in the Gulf Coast area? Even better, why not, explore the Gulf Coast and see what it has to offer?
And just like that "The Emerald Life" was born.
