About Me

Well, Hello There


Welcome to Mommy Gone Tropical!

I am Elizabeth.

28 years old. In love with Mr. Tropical for 12 years. Stay at home mommy to Coral, 6 years old & Ocean, 1.5 years old by day, blogger by night. We live in Sarasota, Florida. Lastly, I am Deaf.

This blog is about my journey navigating through life as a Deaf mom educating people about Deafness and sign language. You will also see DIY tutorials, activities to do with your children, home projects, and product reviews/giveaways. From time to time, I will have guest posters share their stories.

I rely on American Sign Language to communicate. Mr. Tropical is Deaf, too. We don’t use hearing aids/cochlear implants nor do we speak. Our beautiful children are hearing and bilingual in ASL & English. I became deaf at sixteen months old, read more about that here.

Some things I love: Coffee, always coffee. Sunshine. Nature. Dogs. Seashells. Essential Oils. Gardening. Quotes. Make things. Lemons. Photography. Mexican candy. Braided hair. A clean, simple and loving home.

Now, here we are, 12 years together with two children, a mortgage, and a dog.

I hope you enjoy following me along on my journey!
