As the cooler air fills my lungs I am missing New England. While I recently visited Vermont, the trip was too short and I can’t wait until I’m able to spend the entire Summers there. But for now, I’ve returned to Florida where I live and earn a living, enjoying the southern life but dreaming of the perfect life. Not everyone wants to be a snowbird. I’m not on that list. I want summers filled with lakes and mountains, soft grass under my feet and a small cottage or home with a dock, on the water, where I can enjoy sunsets or sunrises, a warm cup of coffee and the precious silence of a beautiful morning. I also want winters absent of mounds of snow, ice and slush. I want to know its 10 degrees somewhere, but 60-70 degrees where I am, where I can go for a walk with the dogs, steal a few hours at the beach, knowing as the temps and humidity rise, I have a secret escape from the perpetual furnace of a Florida summer.
So welcome November! Being stuck in Florida full-time at the moment, it happens to be one of my fav times of year here. So I shall enjoy it. Last night driving with the top down, chillin over cold beers and great gourmet pizza with good conversation, twinkling lights and cool breezes. Nice start to the weekend. And sure beat the hustle of Pineapple Festival. So……. I’ve made a decision recently to be more positive, so in the spirit of that, while I miss you Vermont, we will be reunited soon! I promise. Stay green! Peace.
