Florida was the first state that I ever visited. I was 8 at the time, so of course, our main destination was Disney. I have visited Florida several times since then and now it is my home base.

One of my favorite pictures of my visits in Florida is from one of our trips in the 90's. We had flown into Miami and traveled down to Key West (threw up on a man's shoe on a glass bottom boat) and then drove through the Everglades (bitten alive by mosquitoes while trying to take pictures of a raccoon). On our trip back up to Disney, we stopped in Palm Beach. I remember loving this part of our trip. The beach was amazing and the water was clear, we got pizza in our pink hotel, and it was the nicest accommodation we had stayed in so far.

A few weeks ago, I was driving with my Dad around North Palm Beach. I noticed this pink hotel next to the beach and mentioned our trip to my dad. Turns out, it was the same hotel! It blows my mind that we had vacationed there several years ago, and now the same area is our new home. Crazy! I think we need to do one of those "Then & Now" pictures!
