The Holidays in Florida

Best feeling of 2012??

Being collected in Miami in Suzie, my car!

1 year and 2 months away from Florida was long enough, thank you very much. It was an amazing feeling to be back. I knew I missed it, but only realised how much on the drive down to Naples. The smells, the sounds, the radio stations, the signs, everything back, everything so familiar.

Christmas in the sun was something I HATED the thought of growing up. I could never get my head around Christmas on a beach. Obviously, home for the holidays is the best, but Florida for the holidays is a pretty close second. As a matter of fact, it may be tied at number one now. How things change!

When I saw our tree for the first time, I couldn't believe the size of it- it was huge! Our biggest tree we've ever had looming large in the living room. Only for a few days later, to our shock and horror, we found her lying on the floor. She had given herself up! Reviving her was no easy feat. It involved lots of blood, sweat, tears, shouting, arguments, a new set of lights to replace smashed old ones, and a new tree stand. Hours later, we managed to resurrect her!

Worst feeling of 2013? Leaving Florida!

Hope that feeling won't last too long this time. See you soon Florida!!!

Have a great weekend everyone
