Farewell Florida {my final thoughts}

Thursday we left Florida. This time last year we were planning on moving in December of 2011. At the time I never thought I would find myself living in the south during the summer of 2012. 

I would be lying to you if I told you I am going to miss Florida. Perhaps it was the time of year, the fact that we lived in a hotel or that we lived in the outskirts of small town, so basically the middle of no where. Throwing a city girl in the outskirts of the outskirts is not the best idea. 

I cannot say that I hated it either, I know things could have been much worse. But I can safely say it  is not on my top 10 list of favorite places.

There are things I will miss about our time in Florida. This was a brief moment in time where Scott wasn't dealing with the pressures of work. He didn't work long hours, class usually let out by 3 and by noon on Fridays. We were able to spend lots of time together, maybe a bit too much at times, hehe. 

This was a time when it was just Scott and I, no other people to hang out with. Sometimes it was good and sometimes I would have paid major money to have a girlfriend around. But mostly it was good. It was important for us to get a solid 2 months of just him and I.

I know when Scott goes back to work at the end of the month we will endure some changes. Scott's job is going to be brand new to him. His responsibilities will increase tremendously. This is something he is beyond excited about, and as a loving and supportive wife I am too. This has been his dream for as long as I can remember. 

Saying Goodbye to Florida was in fact a little bit like saying goodbye to the life we knew and were comfortable with. Lots of changes will be happening over the next year.  So while I wasn't super in love with Florida I will always cherish the time Scott and I had there.

Sounds like the next chapter will be a transition but maybe for the better? I hope so! Hope you have a good move! Popping over from YOLO.

Hi there! I found your blog through this Coast to Coast thing (, and I just wanted to drop in and say hi. I don't know many other bloggers around here, and I love stumbling upon people around the area with similar interests. =) Looks like you've been moving around a bunch lately, but hopefully you're on your way to getting settled in. It sounds like you were here briefly before, but not for long? Either way, welcome (or welcome back) to Hampton Roads. =)
