I came across this little image on Facebook and I thought it was true. Often times, we take those closest to us for granted and think they are always going to be there. The reality is that you never know what the future may hold. I was thinking today of a friend who helped me cope with a death in my family, without that person being there and who could relate to what I was going through, it would have been much more difficult. Even though we were only friends for a year, she was a better friend than friends I have known for years. No excuses, or judgements. Finding good, non-selfish friends is hard. Unfortunately, I lost contact as she moved out of state, but I am eternally gratefully. Thanks Lisa!!!

Over the Memorial Day holiday, a friend and I went to Orlando; it’s somewhat of a new tradition. This year, May-hem, a “horror” convention, fell on the holiday weekend. I love going to these conventions, because the freak level is off the chain. This year, I wasn’t too excited over the “celebrities”, so my friend and I drove up and just walked around the hotel, which was fun.
Afterwards, we drove to a nearby town called Windermere (where Tiger Woods lives). While driving around, we spotted this really cool foreclosed house that looked like a castle, I think it would have been a perfect backdrop for a movie. Gargoyles, Stonework and gothic architecture made it standout. The water view was breathtaking. I did a little bit of research and found it was listed for $1.6M.
If you have been to Florida, you know to drive from Central Florida to South Florida is very boring and monotonous. Since we had time, we decided to drive from Orlando to Boca Raton using the beach route (A1A). I do recommend it, but be prepared, it’s a looooong journey. We did hop on I-95 around Cocoa Beach, there was too much traffic on A1A. We exited around the Fort Pierce area and went back to US-1 & A1A. I am sharing with you some stops we made along the way. Hope you enjoy and maybe you can check out if you are in the area. FYI: Some of the Palm Beach celeb homes were kind of hard to take pictures because the estates were gated. You can google them, to see more detailed views.

Just as a side note, do not park at the edge of her driveway, there’s a security guard – we got yelled at.
