Welcome to Miami

It can't be just me who hears Will Smith's Welcome to Miami in my head when I think of Miami, right?

As you might have guessed, I'm off to Florida for the week to get some much-needed sunshine. I'll be in Jacksonville for the weekend visiting my college roommates Heidi and Katie. I absolutely cannot wait to meet Heidi's baby Tessa for the first time. I haven't seen these girls since before I moved to England when we all met at Katie's house to meet her newborn Austin. Unfortunately Megan can't join us. We'll miss her!

After what I'm sure will be a weekend that goes by WAY too quickly, Heidi, Tessa and Mike (Heidi's husband) will take a road trip with me down to the Miami area. I'll be meeting my in-laws, my parents, my sister and Dan for Fakesgiving!

You know Fakesgiving, right? It's one of my favorite holidays. It's when you have a fake Thanksgiving that looks just like the real thing but is on a different day so that everyone can be there. It works great for families who live long-distance and don't want to/can't travel on real Thanksgiving.

This will be the first time since our wedding four years ago that our families have all been together. Everyone is really looking forward to it!

Don't worry though. While I'm sun-bathing, there will still be plenty happening on the blog. I've wrangled a few guest posts for you that will really inspire you with their creativity.

See you when I get back!

  1. I'm sorry I couldn't make it. Give Tessa tons of kisses for me and take a lot of pictures. Love you girls!
