Florida Here I Come!!!!

Well, not just yet! I just got the word from my best friend Claire that it was okay for me to visit during my March Break and Todd has given me the all clear, he'll pay for my plane ticket for my Birthday (in March)! I've been feeling the need to get away, far, far away! This happens every few years I am desperate to go away for March Break to somewhere at least slightly warmer than the great north!

Claire and I have been best friends since grade 10, we took driver's ed together, double dated, and got up to all kinds of teenage no-good together! I haven't seen Claire since she got married in June of 2005. Over the years she has slowly moved further and further south. First it was Myrtle Beach, then Knoxville, then Chattanooga, and now Florida! I have to say that with each move she has made I've gotten to see a little bit more of the US. This will be my first trip to the great (and much warmer ) state of FLA! Now I'll be perusing the web looking for the best flights and prices.

I found out today that Stephanie has received the squares I sent her for round 10 of Fair & Square. I sent them late then she was out of the country, so it took awhile.

So if you make a stop in Detroit, I'll be waiting so we can make that trip together, k? You've got room in the suitcase, right?

Hope you get some nice warm weather while you are here.

How exciting! I'm incredibly jealous. I've been wanting to get away for a while now too, but I don't think it's going to happen this year.

Have fun looking for flights and making arrangements.
