Remember the beach

The best parts of blogging is one is able to look back at their (recent) life and revisit the places they've seen.
This cold weather in the Mid-Atlantic region had me longing for my trip to Florida last spring. A few clicks and I was back in Aly's Beach, at least virtually!
 Just one look at these pictures and the blue sky reminded me of the warm weather and crashing waves.
 Aly's beach was still very much under construction last year and I wonder how it has progressed.
 Maybe I should be planning another trip to check up on it!
What I wouldn't give to be sitting under that trellis rather than tramping through our cold snow and windy streets!
I'll take these virtual vacations in lieu of the real thing (for now!).

Winter cheer

The unseasonably warm weather has left us and winter has returned with a vengeance.  I picked up some cheerful colored roses to warm up my apartment this weekend and take the chill off.
I normally don't leave  roses long stemmed but something seemed right about this. Have you been doing anything to take away the winter blues?
