Friday posts are dedicated to sharing fun filled facts about us, our lives, our family - brief details that give you a glimpse into just who runs this little corner of the internet and will hopefully help you get to know us better.
We’ve called central Florida home since 2003, and here are four of our favorite things about living in the south:
- The weather. Summertime may be hot and humid, but afternoon thunderstorms ease the sweating. And 70s in December? Yes, please!
- The beach. Here you’re never more than 60 miles from the coast, with a choice of Atlantic Ocean or Gulf of Mexico. We love going early in the morning or late in the day to beat the heat and crowds. Our favorite activities are swimming in the surf, long strolls on the sand, and collecting beautiful shells.
- The springs. With at least 700 freshwater springs scattered throughout the state, Florida has more water bubbling out of the ground than anywhere else on earth! Springs are great places to see nature, to canoe or kayak, or for taking a refreshing dip or dive.
- Backroads. Skip the Interstate and take the roads less traveled. Florida boasts plenty of quaint small towns we love to explore, perfect for strolling, window shopping, learning local history, and enjoying an off-the-beaten-path bite to eat.
Until next time, may words bless you!
