Yes, it is true! I love Florida! Yes, it is as hot as walking on the Sun in the summertime, but that is why God invented air conditioning because he loves us and wants us to be happy!
I was born and raised in Michigan where the summers are mild and the winters are downright brutal. When I moved out to California back in the mid 1990’s, I was amazed at how warm it was there. I remember i moved out there in the late fall. I landed at LAX in long pants and sleeves and was just so hot! Then, many years later, dear hubby and I moved to Michigan for a spell to take care of some family business on my end. We stayed there for almost 5 years, but it was just so darned cold we just could not stand it any longer, so we set our sights on Florida! The best move we have ever made. True, it took a few years to get adjusted to the temperatures, especially in the summer months, but it didn’t take long. true, there are things that I miss about both states, but I did try to “go back” and it seems that nothing is ever the same. You just cannot go back. That being said, we have thought about moving again. Tennessee or South Carolina or even North Carolina or Georgia. But if I cannot live by the sea, then it just isn’t for me.
Living about 2 miles from the Atlantic ocean is about as good as life can get. Going to the beach is my church! Between the beautiful trees, the variety of birds and the proximity to the ocean, Florida is a paradise I won’t soon leave. I urge anyone who wonders about this place to come on down and check it out! You will be so glad that you did!
