How to Have the Best February in Jax



Can you believe the second month of 2020 is already upon us? It’s crazy how fast time flies! If you are already starting to wonder what you are going to do this month, do not fret. There are plenty of fun activities on the horizon!

Saturday, February 1st

Goat Yoga
Who wants to stretch those muscles while cute, little goats bounce around next to you? I do, I do! Plus, to make it even better, there have been a lot of newborn goats that run around in their flannels to stay extra warm. Bring a yoga mat (or towel) and your water bottle. The rest is prepared for you. (

I’m going to ask all of my “close friends” to come “out the mud” and join me at Lil Baby’s concert, “yes indeed!” If you caught all of those song title puns, then you are a true fan and should be there, too. If not, maybe it’s time to brush up on Lil Baby’s music and watch him live! (
