Yesterday we woke up to the prettiest, softest snowfall and freezing temperatures! We stayed inside and snuggled by the fire! Stephen watched football and I worked on invitations for my "Annual Old Fashion Valentine Card" making party....
We were not unhappy, by any means, but we started longing for something in the future to look forward to that would bring us both much happiness! How about baseball? Spring training in Sarasota, Florida? A bungalow right on the ocean? Laying on the sand with the sound of the waves melting all anxieties away? Dining every evening up in Saint Armand's Circle on fresh fish? Cold winter day dreams! Then the pipes burst back in the master bedroom bath!
Busted dreams & busted pipes? Nope, we are still going.... we just might not be able to dine in St. Armands Circle as much as we had hoped!
St. Armands is located just two blocks from the Gulf of Mexico and the beautiful beaches of Lido Key ( where our bungalow is located) and just south of world famous Longboat Key, one of the premier vacation destinations in all of Florida. St. Armands Circle was the vision of circus magnate John Ringling, who purchased the island in 1917. Ringling’s influence is evident today in the design of streets radiating from the island’s hub and the Italian statuary from his personal collection. Planned as a luxury development with custom residences and upscale shopping on a roundabout, St. Armands has become the cosmopolitan shopping area and gathering place he envisioned......Stephen and I are hoping to take a few courses @ Ringlings Clown College!!
