Sunshine Love

We just returned from a MUCH needed Christmas vacation in the Sunshine State.  And it did not disappoint. Our vacation had no shortage of sunshine and warm, humid temps.  I was in heaven! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the sun and to be on a beach, in the sun..... dreamy.  

Where we stay once the sun goes down, it's pitch black.  I mean feels like 10pm at 6pm, pitch black. So, the girls (unknowingly) went to bed pretty early each night and then once they were up, we were at 'em.  We alternated beach (Sanibel, Ft. Meyers, Coquina) and pool, visited The Shell Factory, Greenwells, Cabbage Key, Cayo Costa, Matlacha (the cutest little town EVER), and watched many beautiful sunsets.  Here's a little peak into our vacation. 

Cabbage Key 
 This is an island where you can eat and it is said that Jimmy Buffet got his inspiration for "Cheeseburger in Paradise".  I know why..
Sunsets... they are just breathtaking.

One little house in Matlacha had this ADORABLE sign hanging outside the house.  We had to stop and take a picture of it!

 The end of one of our Ft. Meyers beach trips.

 Isn't this gorgeous?  This is the Gulf of Mexico.  We took a boat to Cayo Costa and this was our view.  We never wanted to leave. 
Our girls are still begging us to go back and quite frankly, I would.  It was VERY hard to leave.  We LOVE you Florida!!!! Do you have a favorite place to vacation?

From our Brown eyes to yours....
