Departing Soon

I can't believe we leave for Florida this week! Yippie. Alabama was finally starting to feel more like home. It's probably because we have been here for three weeks straight for the first time all off season.  

From the beginning..

We tied the knot on Nov 5.
Honeymooned in Cabo for a week.
Thanksgiving followed two weeks later.
Brother graduated from MIZZOU.

We went to Tennessee for Christmas,
then Christmas'd in Missouri.
Threw a NYE party.
BD traveled to work conference in D.C.
Winter Warm Up in STL
Drove to GA to see Blake Shelton
and we are home. 

That is what it's like to be traveling every two weeks. Busy bees. Now it's time to pack up again and head south.  

I hate leaving. Hate it to the point of boo hoo tears. I don't think that will be the case this time around. Normally I dread Spring Training. He leaves traveling south and I leave traveling north and it seems like a looooong time until we get to see each other. This year, I'm tagging along. 

Don't take this as I won't miss our family and home and things here in Alabama because I will very very much. But...I do believe Florida will be good for me and I'm excited for this chapter to begin. Then hopefully we will be in STL because I miss my family! Until then we will take it one day at a time. 

This is what I'm looking forward to most in Florida. 

A routine. It is probably about to drive BD crazy as it is. I have sleeping issues, not a surprise to many of you, and I just need a normal everyday routine. Since I will be the work taxi at 7 a.m. each morning I think a routine will be established.

City life. Nothing irritates me more when I am in the middle of a project or cooking and I realize I don't have something I need. This means an hour and forty five minutes later I will be home from 'town' and unmotivated to complete the tasks. I am excited for a less than five minute drive to the grocery or craft stores. 

Coffee shops. Sometimes that is where I like to write and grab a cup of coffee if I have LOTS of projects I am wanting to work on. If I need that extra pick me up to start the day it will not be far away.

Shop progress. I will have plenty of time to work on items for the shop. Here it seems as something goes on everyday and I never have a set time to work on things. I just get to them when I can. I'm hoping to get at least three-four hours each day devoted to the shop.

The beach. Sunshine. Flip flops. Baseball. Baseball. Baseball. 

Yes, I do believe Florida will be good for me.


  1. You have such an amazing upbeat attitude! I love it!

  2. so excited for you! sounds like it will be a much needed "break" from your norm :) living in the country is so fun but i totally agree about not being able to run to the store or coffee shop! you just made me miss it haha
