A Lovely Taste of Summer

Miami, Florida was a breath of fresh air, sunny sky's, ocean views, sandy walks, shell collecting, book reading, no cooking, meals out, fun drinks (anytime you want), fabulous hotel, and the list goes on. There is nothing like getting away in the middle of the winter. We had so much fun and it was even in a reduced amount of time. My husband wasn't feeling that well so we had to head home on Wednesday. It was heartbreaking but not as heartbreaking as having my Hb not feeling well. So home we went to more snow then when we left and even drove home from the airport in Boston to a whiteout of snow. The good news is after some tests and a few more to come, my Hb is feeling better. Home is always where you want to be when you are not feeling well!
Let's see some photo of our holiday!

                                                   View from our room balcony-sunrise

                                                   Another angle-midday-lap pool

Tennis courts-there was an event there whether modeling tennis wear or famous player (not sure which) Fun to watch!

                                                                  Love that ocean

                                                                Walking treasures

                                                Teeny tiny shells, coral and more

                                           Yes, my painted toes, book, sunrise☀ and morning coffee
                                                                   I was in heaven❤

I will share a few more pictures on another post, but I think that's enough for now. Don't want to overdo!

                                  Came home to this hibiscus bloom---perfect timing for me!

I made this baby hat while my Hb was having tests. It's for a special new baby in the extended family.

And of course you can't forget the "big sister" too when a new baby comes along. All ready to pack up and mail!

I also came home to my lovely purchase from Mia, she makes the most wonderful felted items, take a peek!

I also received my beautiful glass bobby pins from Anne.  I was a winner of her delightful giveaway. Anne is celebrating her 1 year of blogging, visit her and congratulate her, you will love her blog!!

Well, M' ladies and gents (just in case) thank you for visiting me here and listening to my story and my life. I need to catch up on all of you, so I'm off to visit all of you!

Jack was so happy to come home from "The Ranch" (his doggy daycare) I can't blame him.


                                                    My new cards-business size and mini
