Unpacking our souvenirs from Florida left me longing for languid summer days, sipping on drinks adorned with flamingo swizzle sticks…
…reliving memories through a painting of the Atlantic…
…and wearing the white aviators I picked up in Palm Beach.
Our vacation to Fort Lauderdale was everything I hoped it would be: lounging in the sun, exploring nearby cities and enjoying oceanside cocktails. While there are still bags to unpack and photos to upload, I couldn’t wait to share a few snapshots from the trip.
I really don’t want to leave tomorrow.
Insects give me the heebie jeebies. Sure, I’ll tolerate the cute bugs*, but honestly, I’m thankful that the cat finds pleasure in attacking – and eating – any creepy crawler that wanders inside. It’d be an entirely different story if the creatures were as gorgeous as this Tony Duquette for Coach stick pin. Collecting bejeweled bugs is as close to entomology as I care to get.
*Cute bugs include butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, caterpillars … and that’s about it.
