Wanderings: Florida

florida - 01Though I’ve been back for just under a week now, I inadvertently took an additional few days off from this ol’ blog here. Is it alright for me to blame the Florida sun? I just couldn’t get my act together last week no matter how hard I tried. But I’m back! And I’ve missed you guys! So in case you were wondering what has kept me away, here’s a little preview in photography format.

Despite the fact that I was working the majority of the time I was gone (once-more, working from “home” proves its worth!), I still managed to squeeze in a bit of fun in the sun (this might be evident from this collection of photos). If I’m being completely honest, this mini getaway could not have come at a better time. Between long hours at “the office”, attempting 3-4 hours of studying each evening, and trying to manage some semblance of a social life (ha!), I had long been burning the candle at both ends (I legitimately thought I might lose it a handful of times there.) But they say that the cure to all ailments is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea, and such statement has never felt more true. So if you’re ever feeling more than overwhelmed, may I suggest the beach? It really does do great things for one’s soul.

    I love Florida. I used to not really get it. When I met my husband and his parents had a winter place there we started going there a lot to get our of the NYC cold once in a while. Now I understand why people love it so much. There is just something great about it. Your pics are great!

      Thanks Quinn!

      And I totally agree. It’s practically the only place I go and literally just do nothing. Beach. Eat. Hang out. It’s just insanely relaxing!

    Having just experienced a beach vacation and then plopped right back to reality (a 9-5…), I completely understand (:

    Your inspirations were sorely missed but it was a well-deserved break! Love the pictures!

    Welcome back, Jacquelyn. I SO miss the Bahamas and was happy to hear that you found some sand, sea and sunshine for yourself. It really does make one feel great, especially during this never-ending winter.
    Love your photos…I keep looking at mine and wishing I was still there.
    Stay well and Hi to Justin,
    Love, Aunt Donna
