Take a look at that photo for a minute, will you?

It’s paradise.

Florida may have it’s drawbacks, but I’d never willingly  live anywhere else.  Being able to take a short drive and  be in a beautiful location like Honeymoon Island is worth the trade off and hassle of summer tourist traffic.

We spent three much-needed days soaking up the sun and white sand while the kids played in the warm shallow waters of the gulf.  Three days – and I did not want to leave.

New life goal – own a house directly on the beach.
