We're leaving Sunday for Florida. Each winter we spend two weeks at the end of the winter and two weeks mid fall in Florida. I don't want to live there. Actually twenty years ago I did live there for all of two years. But my family and friends are here and leaving them is unthinkable. My friend Deb got us hooked up to a time share thing and we're spending three nights in a resort. Now, call me hick but I have never in all my 50 years been to a resort. Neither has DH. So we're like two little kids eagerly anticipating the unknown.

After three nights there, we're going to visit my dad then hop on down to visit Dave's sister and her family. They are remarkable. They open their home to all us snowbirds and make us feel so welcome. Out of the whole trip I look forward to laughing and spending time with them the most. And when it's time to go home, I will miss their family the most.

Dave and I talked the other night about our favorite Florida moment. We agreed it's when we step out of the airport in Tampa and the air is warm and humid and did I say WARM? It's all about contrasts, I guess.

Dave is the easiest person I've ever vacationed with. He is so laid back and enjoys all things new, always ready to travel someplace different or try new foods.
This year I want to take him to Lithia Springs, a place I used to take my kids swimming. It's so cool cause you can see where fresh water and salt water meet. I mean there is a specific line where the streams separate. That always amazed me. Last year we went to see the Manatees at the power plant in Apollo Beach. They are so interesting. Dave doesn't seem to mind my off-the-beaten-track excursions. (WHO goes to a power plant on vacation?)

I'll take lots of pics and post some here over the next few weeks. I already know we'll have a great time because we're going together. I can't wait to visit the HSN warehouse and go nuts over their gaudy jewelry....and he'll go with me and only sigh a few times. (my patient, dear hubby...) I'm so thankful for this time to be together and make memories with my DH. He'll get a much needed break from carrying the mail every day and I'll get time alone with him. It's a win-win....

Oh, and we're taking our laptops so I'll probably post sometime from Florida. I know, it's only Florida, but vacation is still wonderful, even if we were only going to Ohio. (I live less than thirty miles from the PA-Ohio border) Time to relax and enjoy the days and forget the cares of home for awhile......Have a good week and the next time I write it should be from Florida...and hopefully about 40 degrees warmer...

You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I to find
this topic to be actually something which I believe I would by no means understand.
It kind of feels too complicated and very broad for me.
I'm taking a look ahead for your next post, I'll attempt to get the hang of it!

I almost never drop responses, but i did some searching
and wound up here "Vacation.". And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you
usually do not mind. Could it be only me or does it give the impression like a few of these comments appear like written by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new
you have to post. Would you list of all of all your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
