Florida Snapshots

Time at the brand-new and utterly deserted playground
Reading in bed while a 4 year old boy watches Justice League on the computer next to me
Grace’s increasing fluency navigating both an iPhone and a Mac, and her obsession with americangirl.com
Louboutin espadrilles on top of Wired magazine
Endless Go Fish games
Shivering by the pool, wrapped in towels, while the fat-less (thus uninsulated) children swim happily for hours
Walking out to the end of the rough wooden pier into the ocean, watching kites flying, fish jumping, and birds swooping into the water.
Toasts to Thanksgiving, new hearts, one month birthdays, and anniversaries, both 43 and 5 years
Goggles, pool noodles, and water guns
Stunning sunsets from the living room windows
Whit’s utter ineptitude at Jenga
Asleep by 9:30 every night!

  1. It all looks and sounds lovely. Justice League made me smile (boy household). We're a little past that these days, but it wasn't that long ago. Nice memories. (And I always liked Justice League!)

    Hope you had a good holiday!

  2. Love that you captured the little details of your time away. I know that you are thrilled to be home. Nothing compares to home. Now, I just need to get there!
