snapshots from Florida
I recently returned to Florida for the first time after moving back to California in May and it was definitely bittersweet. I still love it there and often wish things had turned out differently so being back in the area brings up a lot of feelings.
Luckily my mother lives in a beautiful spot with an amazing view of the lake. I wouldn't mind being able to watch the water every day, I find it very soothing.
It's especially fun to bird watch. Florida has a unique variety of winged creatures. I love it when they pause long enough for me to get a few pictures.
Florida is also the home of one of my favorite casual restaurants - Steak N Shake. I try to make a visit each time I'm in Florida. I wish we were going to be there for Thanksgiving, I'd definitely go!
Of course I'd make sure to leave room for a full turkey dinner later, of course.
Leaving Florida is never easy, lots of tears, but memories help ease the transition.
