Sailor Stripes

Going back home to Florida for a few days was exhilarating! I never thought I would say that after living there most of my life, but after experiencing the cold weather in Atlanta this past year, I can appreciate the Florida scene so much more. What is there not to like?  Besides the brutal humidity, you are surrounded by water, sunshiny days and palm trees! I was almost giddy at the the sight of dolphins, as if it was my first time.

 I enjoyed playing up the role of a tourist, snapping photos, watching the sunset with my toes in the sand at the beach and hanging out with my long time friends and family. It was a  sweet and warm welcome home, pun intended.  The best part of it all was that I learned I can make that 7 hour drive from Atlanta by myself and enjoy the best of both worlds.  I am truly a blessed girl.

Thanks for reading!
