I hope that you had a nice weekend. I had a very nice one myself and was just thinking how blessed I feel to live in Florida. 
Moving here over 5 years ago was one of the best things I have ever done. 
We have a perfectly sunny, warm Winter and then, even in Summer, we experience cooler temperatures than many parts of the U.S.  I never grow tired of the lush vegetation, beautiful beaches and laid-back lifestyle. It's a place full of green and color year-round and being expressive with color in your dress and decorating is not frowned upon, so I fit in perfectly.
 It's definitely not a place where the chromaphobic mentality reigns! 
Viva Florida!

I love Florida style. I miss being in St Augustine. I have the store for sale here in Northern MI and then I can move down to Florida and open a new shop.
