why don’t I live in florida?

Most of you know I’ve spent the last week at a 5-star resort in Florida.  And while I know that living in Florida for real would mean that I would have to get off of my butt, off the beach, dust off the sand, and get a job, still if given the chance I would do it in a heartbeat.

On the way home yesterday I spent some time staring out the airplane window wondering why I was headed back to Kansas while my heart remained in Florida.  So I’m asking you all today, what draws you to this area and what keeps you here?  (Family is not a valid excuse, we all have that.)  Where would you live if you could, and why don’t you?

What keeps me here are my horses.  As much as I love the ocean, I could not afford to have my horses in such a pricey area.  So in the trade-off between beach and horses, I choose horses.  KC, signing out, sadly missing Florida.
