What I did on my summer vacation...

All I wanted was a nice quiet beach vacation.  When I booked this room the reviews on TripAdvisor said August was the quiet off season.

Everyone else must have had the same idea.

And now I've slept in and  all the pool chairs are gone

I wish I had shopped longer - everyone else has on the same bathing suit as me!

Next time I'm going to avoid the Florida resident specials & book the gulf-front room.

OMGosh!  I just realized today is my Blogabirthday.  I'm 1 year old today. I  hit post #102 a few days back.  I never doubted that I had something to say - I just wasn't sure I could make the journey from my head to the keyboard. So I'm sending out a whole lot of blogger love to all my followers.  Thank you for sharing your love of the beach & all that that implies with me.  The Lord bless you & keep you today & every day.

  8. Cute post- I am one of your newer followers. Hmmm...Love the off season. The off-season in WI involves ice and snow and no way to warm up. I'll suffer through a crabby FL day instead! xo Diana

  9. Happy Blogabirthday my sweet friend. If you never started your blog, I would never have found you or met you or gotten to find out what a wonderful person you are. So thank God you started blogging. I am raising my glass to you and many more blog posts!! HUGS!

  10. Congratulations on your one year blog anniversary! You are a fountain of information. For instance, I love learning about John Muir and his walkabout.
    I first learned of him when I visited Muir woods and had a chance to see the forest he loved and the giant tree rings.

    Hope all is well with your husband. Please give a giant hug to Rhonda the next time you see her.

  11. Congratulations, Karen! We all continue to love you and your blog!! :)

    xoxo laurie
