love florida sunsets

i’m thankful for your …
beautiful sunsets
salt water smell
tropical flowers
Lucy had her first boat ride tonight.  homegirl was terrified.  
then she started to enjoy it. (i think!)
smooooches under a sarasota sunset
I feel like Florida gets a bad rep.  i do understand why!  
But all in all, i love it here.  
Its beauty is breathtaking on a daily basis.  
maybe I’d feel that way about anywhere though.
my mom was talking today about how she looooves her home.  she’s so gushy over it.
but then she said – she’s loved everywhere she has lived.  even the teeny tiny apartments right after they married.   I think I’ll also feel that way if JB is by my side.  
Plus, I truly believe that there is beauty everywhere – if you really look for it. 
Do you love where you live?

    my family had moved 14 times beFORE i moved away to college. and i've basically moved once a year after that. i share yo momma's sentiments entirely. there is something to love about everywhere you live, if you live with someone you love.

    p.s. i misssss flo-rida right now. but we're having this winter's first snow. which is magical in its own right. (:

    I absolutely love where I live. Both home, and now away at college. I believe that it's all about the people who surround you! If you're unhappy where you are, then that isn't a good thing…life is too short and too sweet to spend time unhappy.

    Florida looks gorgeous! And I love the chunky scarf you are wearing – beautiful!

    I'm so jealous you live in sunny Florida. Bad rep? No way! I am in love with Florida. My sister lives in Tampa and I am dying to go out and visit her.

    Now I love where I live! At first, I didn't feel at home. It was cold, rural, and isolated!

    I think that no matter where you are; it's what you make of it that can turn it into someplace special.

    I LOVE Florida, specifically Sarasota. Sarasota has me wrapped around its sweet, tan, lotion smelling fingers! Every time I come home (I will always call it home) I fall in love even more. I just got left there yesterday & I am counting down the days till I get back. Enjoy the beautiful sunsets for all of us!

    I loooove where I live! I live in Los Angeles and it definitely has won my heart. It's always sunny, has the best whether and not only do I get to experience LA, but I can leave the city and experience the mountains, the ocean, the desert, and so many other places! I usually photograph and blog about those places ….so check them out:)
