Fall In Florida





So, this is what Fall looks like in Florida.

Rather than my usual posts of walking through the woods as the pretty leaves swirl around, my fall days have become some of the best beach days we've experienced so far. With all the kids back in school, vacationers here, but few and snowbirds not yet arrived, even the most popular beaches are less crowded. The weather is still beautifully warm and the best part is knowing that back in Michigan, the weather was a rainy, 52 degree day. We feel incredibly lucky, blessed and know moving to Florida was the right decision for us.

Yes, there are days I miss a chilly and crisp autumn morning, with the scent of falling leaves in the air. But, I had that all my life and change and getting out of your comfort zone with new experiences can be good. I feel like I am experiencing something new every day and the best part is that if I really crave a Midwestern fall, I can fly there very easily.

In fact, I will be heading to Michigan this weekend for wedding dress shopping (so excited) and plan to get my fill of pretty trees, comfy sweaters and maybe a visit to the apple orchard for cider and doughnuts. Then, it's back to palm trees, endless sunshine and fall beach days.

Happy Thursday!



  1. It is certainly not FALL weather here where we are! The beach sounds good to me:) Have a beautiful day dear Vicki, HUGS!

  2. Looks wonderful Vicki . . .
    Enjoy your Michigan weekend . . . hope you miss the rain!

  3. Walks on the beach, in the cooler morning air is always a favorite of mine when visiting FL. Have a safe trip, and wonderful weekend with your daughter. Exciting times!!

  4. Greetings from dreary, rainy Michigan. :) You do have the best of both worlds! Enjoy!

  5. These photos make me wish I was there . . . now of course, after the hurricane :)

  6. Beautiful florida! Fall ambiance 3 months of the year.... the Beach 12 months of the year.... You have me at beach life.

  7. Now I'm jealous! The one thing...the ONLY thing...I miss from up north are the apple orchards. Not enough to want to move back, however! Every couple of years we make the trip up to orchard land and I get my fix. Enjoy your trip and please do blog about the dress shopping! SO exciting!

  8. ahh....the beach is my happy place!! I would take it just about any day.

  9. I could use a little beach time right now!


  10. You will love it even more in January and February. I still miss Autumn, it is my favorite time of year. I miss the leaves, the smell and the festiveness of it all. Enjoy the beach.
