Really, Winter Does Exisit in Florida

Finally, proof of winter here in Florida!



Back in April, when we were house hunting, I remember commenting to Dean on how silly it seemed that so many of the houses we looked at had fireplaces. I mean, come on, it's Florida. Well, I have to say that while it's likely to be used less than 10x/year, it is such a pleasure to have one. Although the first time we had a fire, we did have to open the windows after about an hour as it got too hot in the house.

I know you can barely make her out, but miss Natalie enjoys it too. And look, imagine, she's even wearing a sweater! One thing quickly learned upon moving to Florida is that one must wear their favorite winter clothes as soon as the weather chills down. Otherwise, you'll miss the opportunity. There are only about 10 or so days spread throughout the "winter" to wear that silky cashmere. And that lovely wool coat? Forget about it, it ain't gonna happen.

Oh, and yes, against my wishes, it seems I have assimilated. I have a green suede coat that I absolutely love. I put it on last week for a jaunt out of the house and I couldn't figure out what was wrong. Something didn't feel right. After much inspection, I realized that no, nothing was wrong, I just am no longer accustomed to bulky layers. Help me!

And, no--I don't know why that showed up twice.
