Florida Snapshots Part I

In January, I headed to Florida for a much needed holiday back home. 
It was the near perfect remedy to months of spinning my wheels here in Amsterdam.
I'm still hanging on to the warmth of sunshine and hugs from my family and friends,
especially on dreary days, like today, in Amsterdam.

Today's a snowy Sunday and we're taking a break from the kitchen renovations and
 I'm listening to an (all banjo themed!) episode of Prairie Home Companion
which will always remind me of Sundays at home with Mama.

There aren't many things greater than feeling the warmth of sunshine, long awaited bites of my favorite foods and most importantly, the earnest love of my family and friends who reside Stateside.
I was lucky enough to have day after day of these combined fortunes and my soul feels restored from the memories made over those all too rapid two weeks.

Here are some snapshots, favorite moments of my quick trip Florida...

I tried adamantly to eat Mexican food every day while in America...
definitely one of my best, most delicious ideas!
And the hot sauce options...who could ask for more!?


Y'all are so friendly down south!

It's taken some time to get reacquainted to the ebb and flow up my life abroad here in Holland.
But remembering the sweet hugs from friends,
playing card games with my beloved ninety-five year old granny,
and the silly waddle of my darling chicken Tallulah, 
all give me a necessary boost against my never ending homesickness.

PS. Have you tried the OVER app? I'm a recent user and loving it!
