I Like Florida A Little Bit


So, I wore clothes. And they didn't involve 35 layers or a huge winter coat, either.

But the most exciting part of the story was that I went to Florida. And, judging by the pictures, I was practically jumping out of my skin with joy the whole time.





Maybe it was the fact that the last time I was in Florida I was 11 and my parents were in meetings the whole time so it wasn't actually vacation...maybe it was the fact that I secretly wanted a DisneyWorld honeymoon but wasn't able to swing it...maybe I enjoy hanging out with my family wherever they may be...or perhaps it was simply the fact that I was ecstatic about being able to be outside without feeling like I was going to freeze to death. Whatever the reason, I loved it. Highlights and funny stories from the trip shall be forthcoming, this post is just to say that it was good, very, very good. And I'm home in Michigan now, which, in spite of the snow, is a good thing, because I missed my Angel a little bit.

Yay! Excited to hear about your trip! I'm dying for some warmer weather. Not hot, just warmer.

I hope the weather was great for you. When I was there it wasn't as warm as I thought it would be.

You DO look happy. I mean, this is the first time I've ever 'seen' you.. But you look very smiley and happy to be where you are! You remind me of one of Ellen Degeneres' writers; ohhh.. what's her name.. Lauren! She has pointier features than you, but you remind me of her! (It's a good thing, she's sweet and cute.)
