Would you all mind if I said I am so glad that 07 is outta here?
I'm hoping that '08 will rhyme with Great!!
Florida.........such a delight. It was such a pleasure to get away from the aggravation of hubby etc and really "get away" with the girls. Meeting Angie, Martha and Shelly was just as I had expected. Authentic women....real and loving people, which I already knew that from "just visiting the life and chaos of a Roxy world".
How refreshing to be with these ladies and their families on the beach just chillin without a care in the world. I would have never left! That's just how wonderful it was. I wanted to reach out and envelop each of them and just hang on to the moment. It felt good to be surrounded by their love and friendship.
Saturday was an early start for me and Miss T as we meandered down I-295, over the "enormous skyway bridge" with a stop for pictures of course. We checked in to our hotel and took off for "Pops" by the water to meet the gang. I was first to arrive....then Martha & kids, then Angie, then Shelly & daughter. All the "boys" arrived later on the beach (except for Martha's 2 who were already with us).
These families are beautiful people.....inside and out. And I mean that. I love you all!!!
The sound from the Drum Circle was mesmerizing and soothing. The water equally as tranquil. And the colors of the sunset here at Casey Key overlooking the Gulf of Mexico was gorgeous.....much better than up by FIL's.
I did notice that the sand felt and looked very different from ours on the Atlantic Coast. Our sand is more fine and golden....theirs light and course. Martha - I think Miss T and I found something of yours on Sunday --- see if you can find it in the pictures above.
There was buried treasure, er I mean, boys....hula loopies....champage toasts, a ball of light, foggy spotted pictures, pink shoes, laughter and lifetime friendships bonded that night.
It is certainly a tradition I want to keep for many years.
