Cousins

Last year Sunshine and I took a trip to Florida, to visit a friend and some family that live down there.

I can not for the life of me tell you why I felt so compelled to do this trip, but I just knew I needed to.

It was an adventure with a capital A. Traveling alone with a child caused me a heightened sense of anxiety and also caused me to stop and enjoy things just that little extra bit.

Seeing my cousin who I hadn't seen since I was 13 which was only like what 2 or 3 years ago was a blast! We reconnected and have been in touch regularly since my visit.

Well, she came to visit all the way from Florida and it was a great time. We are so very similar in so many ways and yet so very different in others. Some say we look like we could be sisters.

We spent one day just the two us having fun cousin bonding time. It was wonderful.

Her nice little sports car.. never been in one of these before. It was a blast!

At my favorite beach in the state! I love this place.

I love this sign.. no Street girls or sailors.

A view looking up from the car as we drove.. what a day!
