the sunny state

We took our much-needed vacation. To Florida. I love Florida. It's great. Last Friday, we drove for 15 hours (tiresome defintely!) and got there on Saturday. (we stopped and spent the night at a hotel). On Saturday, we went and picked...
























Florida oranges! they are THE best! The groves were soo pretty. There was a deal-thing where you could get a bag of any citrus in the grove. we filled our bags with keylimes, oranges, tangerines, and kumquats. I had never heard of them either. they are sorta sour, but good.
Anyways... The rest of the trip we swam, kayaked, looked for shells, shopped a little bit, saw dolphins (so awesome!), and rented bicycles which we rode all around the island. I ended up spending all my money on this trip. i know, i probably shouldn't have... but i got a really cute pink and green t-shirt, 1 pair of gold star fish earring, another pair of silver shells, and... some shells a t a shell place, postcards, and something else that i can't remember. It was the first year we didn't get together with family for thanksgiving. but we still had a good time.

Anyways.. I'm feeling a little depressed. I always get depressed after coming home from vacations. The leaves are all gone, and it's cold. but i am soo thankful we got to go have a wonderful time in florida! Another thing- it is hiliarous to see "winter wonderland" blow up snowmans in 80 degree weather. HA!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and a fabulous week!
