A few weeks ago, my pal Rachel and I took our annual trip to Sarasota, Florida. It was insanely refreshing, even though it rained two of the three days we were there. Don’t worry; we shopped instead. It’s a good thing we soaked up the sun Sheryl Crow-style that first day for a solid four hours after we slept in until noon without a care in the world. We ate excellent food, drank potent and delicious drinks, and saw some really cool things. Rach, we are too much fun, and I relish this annual getaway we take. Thank you for being awesome, even when I get sick the first night with a migraine. Photos below were taken with the VSCOcam app, something else I’m totally loving.
This time we felt like we really knew the city, and spent a good amount of time tooling around the downtown area. I saw where my dear friend Troy worked while he lived there, drove on the street he lived, and I saw a lot of signs of sweet reminders of him being there. When I returned, my trip inspired me to reconnect with our mutual friend Addie, who’s been keeping up with me via this blog for longer than I knew! We visited this week and because I know she’ll read this, Addie, it was so good to catch up with you. Helps put things in perspective and reaffirms that old friends that come back through your life in special ways and in times when it just makes sense.
