Come With Me

It's Tuesday. The weekend is a long, lonely 83-ish hours away. Plus, it's chilly, sock donning weather. What? Don't sniffle at me. It may be Florida, but it's cold here, too. No, seriously. It's in the 70s or something. I'm wearing pants. This sort of thing is no joke for us Key West lovin' water babies. When fall's Jacket Weather arrives, it's usually a big story 'round these parts. We do not possess the tough, windshield scraper powers of you Northerners. And by Northerners, I mean anyone living above the border of our Sunshine State. Yes, I may have been born in the Windy City during the year of Chicago's Famous Blizzard Of '79, but I've long lost any ability I had to thrive while living among the powdery white stuff. I think it's a photosynthesis thing. Don't get me wrong, I'll hop on a plane and throw myself (poorly) down a ski slope any day of the week. I heart hot cocoa. I'm all about fireplaces. I adore the idea of sweater snuggly weather. But when the sky starts to go gray, and the wind starts to whistle, I start whining louder than a 2 year old who's Binky was stolen like Kate Gosselin's quarter million. I'm a wimp when it comes to low temperatures, no matter how much I try to love them. The truth is, they just don't love me back. Sooo. In honor of all of my friends huddled around fireplaces, and to make myself feel better about the long sleeve shirt that I'll have to sport during my run later, please enjoy some super duper purty ocean pictures, taken during our warm May wedding. And if it will make the weekend seem any closer, feel free to snag one of these as a screen saver, or the like. My 'puter is my version of office art right now, since we are living out of boxes for the next month or so. Happy Tuesday.

I lived in Clearwater for a couple yrs, comming from MIchigan I used to laugh at all the residents who would wear coats and stuff when the weather dipped into the 70's...I would wear my hoodie and shorts all winter long, everyone thought i was nuts....its all relative, I guess ;)

stay warm my friend

Love the pics! Beautiful and so inviting! Yup, we're going to have that white powdery stuff soon. I'm getting out my warmest sweaters today! But I do enjoy the cuddle alerts here in Michigan!

I grew up in Chicago too, just born one year later. I have now lived the last 5 years in either Arizona or California and yeah, I think I would die if I went to Chicago in the winter.
My blood has definitely thinned out. :)

These pictures are awesome, they just make you want to pack everything in your car and head for the ocean. And congrats on the nuptials
