Living in Florida these past five months has been wonderfully surreal for me! Suddenly, after living my entire life in Jersey, it’s kind of a culture shock when I moved to Florida — seeing people walking around in shorts instead of winter coats and knowing I can go to a local beach in January. Though I’m used to witnessing the tri-state area buried in feet of snow after a ridiculous blizzard, I don’t miss the shoveling or being inconvenienced with finding a parking space because a pile of snow is covering the last few spaces at the end of the lot. Also, after many years of living in the same area, I’m grateful for starting life anew in Florida, in the new year with my family.
Have a great and blessed 2014, everyone!
