On the road to the sunshine state.........

It is about time to start packing for the sunshine state once more. For those that do not know the real story about Florida here it is. After Charlie and I retired it was my idea that we pack up and move to Fl. Once we got there and settled in as snowbirds I missed my girls and grandchildren so much through the long 6 months that we were there.
Now mind you this was all my idea, so I had to live with the end results, I had made my bed and I had to lie in it for 8 years until I could convince Charlie that we could move back to the cold country and just go and rent something for a few weeks. So that is the rest of the story...........We will pack up and rent in the sunshine state for 6 weeks.
When we return to Ohio in the middle of April, it will be time to think Spring , get ready for our little summer place and work in the garden at the condo. I am so ready to get away from the cold and snow we have had up north. I will blog and take pictures when I get to Fl. and show all the folks up north what the sunshine looks like.
Till then stay warm and please think SPRING!
Love you guys.......Sharon K

Oh Sharon, please let me hop in your suitcase and come with you, pretty please!!! Hope you, Charlie, and Winston have a wonderful, relaxing time in sunny Florida. Prayers for safe travel for y'all, too.

Miss Sharon~ Thank you for your visit.
I've wanted a second residence in my home state of Southern Calif. My family lives there. Just the mere thought of being away from my boys made me start to miss them. So were still here. Like you, I now would like to go for a shorter length of time. Enough time to shop at all the huge flea markets and boutiques of course.
I hope your trip is safe, warm and enjoyable. I look forward to seeing pics of the sunshine state. I'll be back by again.

Sweet Wishes,
Sara

Hi Sharon,

So nice to me you. I'm glad you found my blog and left such a kind comment. Looks like we have a lot in common with our love of tea. I'm sure you could tell during your visit to my blog just how much I love everything related to tea. Please come back and visit again soon. Have a fun and safe trip to Florida. Send some of that warm air up to Minnesota!!

I hope you're enjoying your time in Florida! It got warmer last week and left us a teaser of what's to come for spring, but today it was windy and very cold at 17 degrees! Oh, how I would love a few weeks in Florida!

Can't wait to see you back and posting!
