My Trip To Florida

Well my husband and I just recently made a weekend trip to Sunny Florida to see family and to attend my husband's cousin Eddy's wedding. We normally don't take long distance trips such as this often so we were due for a little R & R. We both work really hard and we needed some time away for a bit. And yes this is my very first visit to Florida. We left on Friday November 20 and returned Sunday November 22 so a short trip.

I am not much for flying so being that we recently made some trips to Vegas in 2004 & 2005 made this trip for me a little easier. We flew out of Dulles/Washington Airport on Friday with Jetblue. I really enjoyed my flight and it took away a lot of my fears for flying. The pilots were very friendly and what I loved best if all they had Directv on board so I can kick back and watch what I wanted and not watch a movie that I may have possibly have seen. I have some lovely photos to shave of my trip.

I love chatting with her during the day very funny and pleasant person. I have taken the time to visit Kristy's Artfire studio and was in love with many of her pieces in her studio and just had to feature her so everyone can see why I think her shop was worth featuring.
