Most of you know we moved to the Carolinas from South Florida…in which we resided there for 9 years. Being from Buffalo New York where YES the winters are long cold a blustering snow, I always knew I wanted to leave there someday. Well South Florida was never for me. Never had that warm fuzzy feeling in a home that I so desired. Homes basically all looked the same. We had a lovely home there, and really tried to make it unique. While visiting a close friend in our old neighborhood I managed to sneak over and take some pictures. Jack my youngest was a little sad. I could understand, as that was where he was born and grew up until he was 5 years old. We miss our friends and family very much. However, never have had ONE day of regret….we absoltely LOVE the Carolinas…this is home:)
We where the only home in the entire community with a water feature such as this one….I can’t get over how big my crown of thorns grew. Funny everything is in the same exact spot as when we left it….like that blue planter you see….and a hanging orchid in the tree.
This was our pool that we had built. We planted all the landscaping along the perimeter for privacy…looked like it grew a lot in four years.
OK this was a shock when I walked back there….funny thing when the young couple bought our home they had no children….since then they now have TWO boys….do you think I left my boy energy there? Well they have certainly utilized what little back yard there was.
Now this is hilarious…..Mike always wanted a Magnolia tree. Here in the Carolinas they are of abundance and HUGE I might add. We planted this tree atleast 7 years ago, it is smaller than when we planted it LOL!
How about I show you just a little more of the vaca….next up is my favorite South Florida home decor store….called Andeans….that is where I purchased my kitchen table and many other unique pieces. I only took a few pictures as it was too hot, and honestly I was not impressed with them anymore…there where still the same things as when we left.
How about I show you the hotel we stayed in…so much fun!
