2015-2016 Living in South Florida!!!!

I started out making this post like most of my other travel posts.   But it got so LONG that I decided to start a whole new "South Florida" blog with a more traditional blogging style.  I edited this post with links to my new "South Florida" blog so it would be easier and faster to see specific places or things that we especially enjoyed in South Florida.  

  To check out my specific Florida events or places, click on the links below.  Some of the events or places will have multiple posts, some will just have one (be sure and click on the "older posts" link at the bottom right of the post):

  1. Nice pictures, so filed with emotion! South Florida is truly an amazing place. My husband and i will be moving to Pompano Beach soon to live at the newly built Sabbia Beach Condos complex there ( I simply can't wait! I've been following your blog for some time now, great content :) Wishing you and your family all the best! Love, Mel

    1. Nothing like responding 1/2 year later! Hope you're loving living in South Florida as much as I do. Unfortunately our time here is soon ending! Still have to get to Pennekamp, take our Groupon ferry trip to Grand Bahamas, and try to get to Ft. Meyers for another reciprocal botanical gardens and sunset; but will be moving on to Georgia in a couple months! Lake Lanier, here we come!
