I woke up this morning and the temperature was a single, lonely degree.  Kind of like me.  While I continue to love my new KitchenAid stand mixer – it’s not so good at cuddling in a warm and cozy bed on cold mornings.

I miss Scott.

I miss the warm.

I miss the sun.

It’s really cold here in Minneapolis.  I realize that I should have thought about this prior to moving here.  It turns out that I really don’t like the cold.  I like the snow even less.

I have been dreaming of the beach lately.

However, this is the closest I am to a beach currently.

It’s not quite the same.

But I have been spending a lot of time daydreaming about these beaches (visited while on vacation with my family in April 2009):



Dominian Republic


And thinking about being surrounded by gorgeous, breathtaking, tropical beauty, color and scenery.

St. Thomas


St. Lucia




Not to mention some fun frozen drinks (mango margarita, anybody?)

Re-visiting these photos almost takes me away from the cold, snowy Midwest winter.

Thank goodness for my upcoming trip to Florida next weekend.

Maybe I can convince Scott to spend a day at the beach … just because you can do that in Florida in January.
