We’re here! After a long time of hoping we could make the move and then what seemed to be a mad dash of planning, we arrived in Florida at the end of April.

It seemed so weird to be able to go swimming in the spring – outside. Maine never gave us that luxury. Yes, I know it gets hot here. I’m looking forward to it. Cold, snow and ice was never my forte. I was definitely born in the wrong region.

My parent’s moved here over 10 years ago and haven’t regretted that decision once. We won’t either. Hubby’s from the mid-west and loathed the Maine weather from the first winter when his company had transferred him until we left.

Don’t get me wrong. Maine has some lovely things. The beaches, the ocean, the beautiful foliage. Apple picking in the early fall and cutting down our Christmas tree in the winter are things I will surely miss and will not be able to do here, but I’ve still got the beaches and the ocean. Only now I can enjoy them for many more months out of the year.

I’m looking forward to this new adventure.

Cheers! To sand and sun!
