Why I am counting the days until I leave for Florida

Here is a shot of my youngest and his friend that was published of them both on their way out.

A picture says a thousand words:

I feel their pain. You definitely need to get away to a warmer clime. Wish I could follow you but duty beckons. Have a great trip!

Great photo! We never see anything like that around my little neck-of-the-woods! I can see why you can't wait to thaw out in Florida...J

I accidentally led my daughter down an ice fall (on skis) last year. Does that count?

It's been so warm here in Florida, Barbara. We've had about 5 minutes of winter this year.
Which coast do you live on while you are in FL?

Enjoy your trip!

It's been over 80 in Daytona. Have a safe trip!

There are some things mothers would just rather not know about - and much prefer thinking of vacation with warm, sunny days and an ocean nearby!

And here's hoping our remarkably warm FL weather continues for your trip. I love being here for the light more than anything but this year warm weather and warm pool in our complex are a nice January bonus.
