THE RUNDOWN // October


The Rundown OctoberOctober is here and we are gearing up for Halloween! This rundown will be full of spooky (or not so spooky) events! I said last month that the weather would be cooling off; that was obviously incorrect information! Hopefully this month we feel some of those Fall temperatures! Either way I am fully committed to my Fall wardrobe – even when its 90 degrees!

As always Mamas, if you see something fun going on around town let us know! Tag us @Destin30aMoms and we will add it to the list! // With that being said, check back often as there might be some changes!

Carrie is originally from Illinois but moved to the Destin area in 2009, where she later met her husband Lee.  They now have two spunky little boys, Elias and Oliver.  Carrie and her family moved between Destin and Nashville, TN for quite a few years - almost as backwards snowbirds - Summers in Florida & Winters in Tennessee. While in Tennessee Carrie finished her degree in Communications and soon after moving back to Florida, settled in Santa Rosa Beach. Carrie started working with Destin 30a Moms Blog once it was founded in 2017 as a contributor and purchased it early in 2019 with business partner, Whitney Whidden. The two continue to believe in connecting local moms both online and off, and creating a go-to resource for everything you need to know about motherhood on the Emerald Coast.   When she's not out around town (probably at Target or looking for the best cup of coffee) she can be found with her family enjoying trips to Walt Disney World, golfing, staying active, and spending time on the water by boat or beach!   Contact her via email at [email protected]
