I don’t think there has been a time in recent memory that I have left my parents house and thought, gosh, I am happy to depart. In case you missed it on social media I was lucky enough to fly home for Thanksgiving and spend time with my family. Calling Florida home will always be weird to me and is confusing to those who have known me for a long time or for coworkers who know I grew up in the suburbs of New York City but I call home wherever my parents are and for the past few years that has been Florida.
I was able to fly home Tuesday night, work Wednesday from home, and then enjoy four days of R&R with my parents, grandparents, and one of my aunts which was an extra special treat. During those four days I ate an inordinate amount of fresh seafood – oysters and crab claws are my favorite – along with swimming laps outside, riding bikes, taking walks on the beach, waterskiing, and reading a fantastic spy novel. The weather definitely behaved and was a glorious 82 nearly every day with only one rain shower. Take a look:

I hope you all had wonderful long weekends with your families and loved ones!
