Florida on my Mind
Florida has always been a place close to my heart. I’ve been going there my entire life, as my grandmother lived in Palm Harbor, and Aunt and Uncle live in Clearwater Beach. My parents now live there in the same house that my grandmother lived in, so in many ways, it’s like a second home to me. What is really special is that my own kids now play with the same toys that I played with in my grandmother’s house, but now it’s their grandmother’s house!

I wish all Floridians well in their recovery from Hurricane Irma! My parents escaped to Nashville, TN, where my brother currently lives, several days before it hit. The house survived just fine though, with just a few downed limbs and branches.
