Kim! What a great post! I hung on every word. It looks you guys had the best Christmas. How nice to rent the large condo on the beach so Amy and your sons could stay there too. It's great that Amy's parent was able to join you. I think Dave and I need to rent a place on the beach really soon. We'll be heading to St. Augustine March 22nd for my niece's wedding on the beach on March 23. We'll be staying at the St George Inn. Some of our friends recommended the place.

You have a really nice family, and it looked like you did a lot bonding and had some great laughs. Your sister Jeri is gorgeous! You can definitely tell you two are sisters. You look like a hot mama on the balcony with your Harley shirt and leather boots. Did you and Mark rent a motorcycle while you were in Florida? I know Mark has a Harley doesn't he back home? Where is Miss Sadie Mae? Mr. French is adorable.

Your photos look amazing! The skys were so blue and the sunsets are divine! I can visualize how magical is must have been walking the beach at night and hearing the sounds of the ocean waves lulling you to sleep! Glad to see you're home and back to blogging. You know I always love hearing from you and seeing you in blog land!

P.S. I lost some weight this summer but gained it back. I've got some work to do before we head to Florida but it's probably too late now!

Hi Sandy,
Hope you had a great Christmas and New Years as well! Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments. Always happy to see you on my blog dear friend. We did have a wonderful time! We had to leave Miss Sadie Mae with Carlee, the gal who grooms her, for the holidays. She gets to stay in the house with the family and sleeps with Carlee's kids when she is there and is very used to staying there. Unfortunately, the condo owner would not allow dogs....even little ones like Sadie. We missed her but knew she was being well cared for. Thank you for the compliments on my boots....I wear these boots a lot here in Washington State. They go with a shorter dress and tights or look good with jeans or black slim pants or leggings. They keep my legs oh so warm! I have many boots which I love. I know you will have a wonderful time in St. Augustine! Mark and I stayed at Casa de Suenos when we were there. Loved that place! If you go to the A1A Ale House which I highly recommend, be sure and sit out on the balcony and enjoy a glass of wine or special drink for me :) I have been to the Old Fort there in St. Augustine many times. There used to be a nice restaurant called The Raintree, too. A1A Ale House is more casual. Both are great! Flagler College has Tiffany windows. St. Augustine is a popular weekend spot for people that live in the area. Go to Daytona Beach while you are there! Have fun and enjoy the wedding! Love ya lots, Kim xoxo


Hi Kim,
looks like you had a wonderful time in Florida over Christmas. My husband and I spent Christmas this year with my sister and all my nieces and nephew it was a great day. My son spent Christmas in Melbourne with his wife's family and my daughter spent Christmas with her fiancée's family on the North coast of New South Wales. I loved reading what you got up to I sat at the computer cuppa in hand and had a ball lol. I love your sisters Christmas tree like you and Jeri I love Christmas I usually put my tree up in November and take it down about the 7th January I just love looking at all the decorations. I do the same thing that you do with your sister I give my children my 3 grandsons and my godchild Christmas ornaments as one of their gifts I think it's a great idea and holds many wonderful memories. Thanks for the post I thoroughly enjoyed it and the pics those sunsets are Beautiful. Trish xox ;)

Dear Kim,
What a nice Christmas you had with your family. I bet Jeri was thrilled to have the get together at her house. I was browsing through her home, and it's so lovely. I really like the table with the lamp on it. I have been looking for something like that for my house. Such fun pictures of you on the beach, and the sunsets were amazing! Of course, I loved the red roses Uncle James gave to the family. Jeri looks so cute cooking away in her kitchen. You look snazzy in those black knee-high boots, and your smile is so pretty. I'm glad that you had such a nice Christmas. It just goes to show that it doesn't matter where we spend this blessed holiday.....what matters is that we spend it with the ones we love. Have a sweet day, Kim.
