baby it's cold outside!
We moved to Florida to escape the snowy MN winters but the last couple days and a couple to come are way too cold for me. When my husband calls and tells me to leave a note to remind him to turn on the pool at night and to drain the water from his motor on his boat I KNOW it's cold outside!! To compensate I made a Beach Cottage sign - to remind me that the warmth of sunny FL will return...
I am an ocean media seashell artist living in Central Florida - moved here after a lifetime in snowy Minnesota and finally feel at home here with the sun, sand and seashells! My husband and I get up each morning and have our coffee looking out at our small pool surrounded by tropical vines and flowers with birds and butterflies swooping among them. Sounds like a fairytale and for us, it is...the downside is that money is much tighter than it was up north where I sold real estate - now I create art all day and the headaches are virtually nil.
