I’ve been blessed with some great vacations. Ireland and Italy were two of my favorites. I’ve never been to Florida other than to an airport to fly out. This sounds amazing. However, If I won, I’d probably give it to my daughter and son-in-law who lost their first baby. I think they could use a get-away. =)

89
Kimberly Russell July 26, 2013 at 8:28 am

I haven’t been on vacation in 13 years! I guess that is what you get when your married to a farmer! I would have to say that my best “vacation” was the 3-week mission tour I took to Arizona (from WV) the summer of my 10th grade year with a group of 19 people from multiple churches all over the state. I got to see the Grand Canyon, Green Lake Wisconsin, and so many different landscapes you don’t see when living in WV.

I could not agree with you more, the white sugar sand and emerald waters of Florida’s gulf coast are the best beaches. I am also enjoying them right now in Destin. Just love it, it’s the best and I love when you write about them.
