I started writing this blog in 2010, around the time when we had found a Florida house that we fell in love with.
We sold the little St. Augustine house last year.
Now we are in the middle of deep winter and am longing to get away to sunnier climes.
I love the old Florida vibe, easy living outside your door, the casual beat of the ocean surf in your ears.
I am looking for a little house on a small lot with plenty of tropical foliage and a tiled courtyard.
I would like to make it a more permanent home, not just a get away, but somewhere that we can live seven months out of the year.
A space for all my books and a corner to write down all my thoughts and inspirations.
A screened lanai to sit outside and sip sweet tea in the heat of the day under a palm leaf fan.
So the cycle starts again. Finding a place to call home in Northeast Florida on the Atlantic ocean. A little rustic, a lot laid back and colorful, but light and bright too!
Here's to nine more years of blogging! Nine more years of sunshine in the winter months! Nine more years of decorating new spaces in my life!
