Where Am I?



 
We booked a family vacation on Dec. 14th to go to Ft. Myers Beach, Florida from the 21-28th of December.  Looks like we got out of town just in time, as a winter snowstorm ravages the Midwest.  We are taking long walks on the beach, watching sunsets, celebrating our recent 16th wedding anniversary at PF Changs in Naples (was on Dec 18th), picking sea shells, watching dolphins frolic as we walk the beach, laying out poolside, eating healthy,  and enjoying family time together. 

Now, if Jon could just find a job down here, I think we'd pull up roots and move here.  All three of us are loving it, so at peace and such a relaxing place to be.  The first day here I went for a long leisurely walk on the beach, and could literally feel the stress of 2009 and all of the business just lift off of my shoulders.  So blessed to be here.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  Thank you for all of your comments, following my blog and your precious friendships that have unfolded in 2009.  I am blessed for having you in my life.

  1. Okay, girlfriend, rub it in! LOL! Looks like you're having a great time in Florida. You're missing our big snowfall, but I'm at home and it is beautiful! Have a Merry Christmas, and see you next year!

  2. So glad you are having a fabulous time! Yes, you are missing a storm but actually, being inside with hot chocolate and the kids and hubby isn't so bad - ha! We surprised the boys with a ski trip over Christmas vacation - they are thrilled.

    I'm so glad to have met you in 2009! We will certainly get together again in 2010...tell Carolyn "hi" for me and enjoy the rest of your trip.

    Take care! Andrea
