Hey there! We are Matthew and Brittney Williams (Matt and Britt) and we are the co-creators of Love and Luggage, a travel and lifestyle blog.
Welcome to our virtual home and thanks so much for stopping by. First let us start off by saying how grateful we are to connect with you. Neither of us believe in coincidences so if your here it's meant to be! Our greatest hope is that you are inspired by our journey of faith, love, and adventure. We enjoy building relationships via our social media platforms so please feel free to reach out!
Let us start from the beginning, it all began at Martin L. King high school, in downtown Detroit. It was your typical guy likes girl, girl had a boyfriend, but in the end the guy gets the girl kind of love story. Awww soooo romantic right?!
Fast forward to about three years ago, we tied the knot and instead of going on a honeymoon we packed up our entire lives into a U-Haul truck and took a HUGE leap of faith. With our hearts set on the journey we drove over 19 hours from Detroit to South Florida straight. We were so excited for this move since this was often a vacation spot but not anymore... now we call this place our home.
When we arrived we didn’t have jobs and only had about 3 months’ worth of savings... wait we did say it was a leap of Faith right? Well by the grace of God, we found jobs shortly after and have been loving and living on Hollywood beach ever since, Whoohoo!!!
We wanted to start this blog because as we explored this brave new world it dawned on us that there is so much fun and beauty to be explored in South Florida and the nearby Caribbean Islands. We wanted to take full advantage of all of the perks our new home had to offer but more than anything we wanted to share it with others.
So join us in our love, faith, and travel journey. We promise never to bore you. In fact, as we find local deals and rare gems we plan to share them with you first. Sound good?! Do connect with us if you’re in the area!
Peace, love, and luggage :)
Matt and Britt
