Yesterday I flew to Florida and I’m camped out here for two weeks. The rest of the family arrives next week including my daughter who’s coming down from New England on her break. My brother’s family is coming down from Savannah for Thanksgiving and I’m excited to be back in Sarasota hosting family here.
Today I went to a sand sculpture contest on Siesta Key, it’s an annual competition and the solo and team creations are fantastic, I’ll share some images on Instagram. I have a few holiday projects lined up this week to share, look for those this week and I’m pulling together a few lists of gift ideas too since we’re all menu planning and shopping this time of year.
