Publix and White Castle

Oh Florida, I did miss you.  We just got back from a whirlwind trip to see family in Orlando and S FL. It was so great to be back there.  I even missed the humidity!  It just feels like home to me.

I was seeing and enjoying my family in a whole new light as well.  It was a great homecoming.  Harley got to meet his far away family as a "real person" as one cousin put it who met him as a baby.  He will remember those characters now by God!  My aunt Phyllis scared the life out of him with her loud laughter, but he hugged her anyway.  (So cute)  She laughs when she is over come with emotion or showing her approval.   Actually, sometimes she just laughs because she likes to.  She's funny that way!

I also got to visit my most FAVORITE store on the planet, Publix.  Well, it is my favorite grocery store. Harley got his free cookie and all was right with the world.  When we landed in LA I over heard several of the passengers talking about Publix and White Castle burgers.  Things that they missed about living in LA.  I almost piped up, but I was too exhausted.  I just smiled and enjoyed listening to them and feeling a silent kinship.

I'm still jet lagged.  We arrived home last night around 8pm pacific time and Harley's first day of school was TODAY.  Oops.   A good friend says that she did not receive the religious gene.  I did not receive the good planning gene.

More Florida Shenanigans to come.  Please stand by...
