A lovely place to come home to

Many people have said us Floridians live in paradise. So why would we Sunshine State citizens ever need to get away? Yes, it's true we Floridians enjoy soaking up the sun even in the middle of the work week. For people like me it really is home sweet home.

What a Wonder-ful view in South Beach

Finding a way to deal with the 8 hour drive back from Key West to Orlando, an overnight stay in South Beach was definitely in order.… Continue reading What a Wonder-ful view in South Beach

Hi there Florida Lifers! It has been busy, busy, busy in my world! This weekend I needed a little retail therapy. My parents and I visited Adjectives Antique Market (I will definitely have to do a write up about this treasure chest). A table with a beautiful, exotic painting on it caught my eye. Upon… Continue reading Help wanted! Solving the Margaritaville mystery…

Living ThisFloridaLife in 2013

ThisFloridaLife started as both a love song for my homestate and a catalyst for me to get out there and enjoy my lifelong home. I dreamed of Paris, Hawaii, Tokyo, London, the Caribbean, and Italy. Those dreams seem more and more out of reach and frivolous, and so a new dream was born: enjoy my… Continue reading Living ThisFloridaLife in 2013
