Fourth of July, Florida Style
Back to my normal shenanigans of post-posting when it comes to Grateful Simplicity. Middle of July and here I am, scrolling through old photos trying to play catch up. Oh well, we call that Life. For the long holiday weekend, my sister’s family came down and the nine of us squeezed our happy little fannies into the 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage- inflating an air mattress thus turning the living room into another bedroom. Although it is 96+ degrees inland, with the gulf breeze it didn’t feel near as warm. We went island hopping, took turns cooking dinner, and let some minor hygiene details, like little people brushing teeth, fly out the window for an extra day. The sunset was a perfect salty backdrop to the fireworks and we were reminded, once again, how lucky we are to be able to take these kids to coast to experience Florida life and all it has to offer.
