I have a fun announcement!

At least I think it's fun mickey

Joe and I have officially moved to Florida! We arrived Friday evening after a 3 day/35 hour drive from Phoenix. With the dogs. eek

We're on the Gulf side and within an hour and a half of WDW silly I think annual pass holder is imminent! Haha.

It's been on our minds for years to move to this area but just never got the moon and the stars to align with our work - but last fall the opportunity arose. And here we are yay

That's all. Carry on...... laugh muchlove banana beach yeah

We moved to Orlando in September and love it! We got our AP's before moving down, and we go almost every weekend. It's been fun to be able to go to do all of the small things that we have always wanted to do, that's the best part. All of the Epcot Festivals, Dapper Day, spend half days at the parks. AND NO SNOW! (For you, you've already been living a snowless lifestyle, so that isn't a big change for you haha)

I do not recommend 35 hours in a car with dogs to any sane person. eek But it's worth it in the end. Maybe. I hope.

I've gotten a firm NO from Geordon about moving to Florida. sad Health-wise it would not be good for him. I will have to live vicariously through you.

I know, right? We are still trying to adjust to greenery and water. Haha. I already envision our first trip and thinking "Wow, we live here he and can do this regularly!" * letting that sink in *
