The last year had gone by so quickly, I hardly could believe a year blew by. After moving to the West Coast, Tom and I are packing up all our belongings and moving back to the East Coast. While I met some amazing people in Los Angeles, and fell in love with Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and the beaches, I’ll be closer to my family, New York City, the Caribbean, Miami and Europe.
I realized that when I started increasing my travels significantly, I came home wanting to spend my weekdays relaxing at home and hitting the gym before packing up to travel to over the weekend again. Florida has some beautiful homes and is a more affordable state closer to cruise lines, carribean destinations, very good flight sales to Spain where I’ll connect to other European cities, and to New York, where some of the cheapest flight deals to Asia and Europe are. Plus, I’m close to Disneyworld. I mean, who can say no to Mickey Mouse?
I’m excited to explore the nearby cities, beaches, and I don’t even have to say goodbye to the beautiful palm trees. As you see in the photos, I’ve pulled an old palm print dress out from my closet to wear to the beach, so I’ve included some really pretty palm print inspired pieces for Spring and Summer. The really cute palm printed swimsuits are on my must-buy list.
To say it frankly, I’m terrible at saying bye to people. The last time I did so, I decided to do a full on attack by having everyone fire arrows at each other during Archery Tag instead (which is so much fun if you have never tried it). I would rather see everyone laughing and joking around than smiling and feeling sad about departure. I also know I’ll be flying back every year, so it’s not the last you see of me, Los Angeles!
If you have some favourite spots in Florida, please send them my way! I’m always down to drive around and exploring the state. Here’s to new experiences, friendships and more opportunities! I hope you all have an amazing week.
