Long time, no blog! What a crazy few weeks – to say the least.

I really do not want to leave this poor blog unattended for too long, so I come bearing warm-weather photos from a recent trip I took to Sanibel, FL!

We’ve had snow storm, after snow storm, after snow storm in Connecticut, and getting away to some place warm was so necessary for my sanity! My parents spent pretty much the entire month of February (and then some) “wintering” in Florida & invited me down for a visit. I couldn’t pass it up.

I had been a little stressed and this trip was exactly what I needed. For those still shoulder deep in snow (like me), I hope these picturesย brings a little glimmer of hope of the warmer days to come!

Had to start off the trip with a bright manicure!

All in all – it was the perfect getaway. I love having all these pictures – even though there was so much more that I was unable to capture!

I came home with a little bit of a tan & the motivation to push through the next few weeks of winter. We’re in the home stretch. Thank GOODNESS!!

Were you able to get away this winter?ย 

Where did you go?

 

XOXO
