No Place Like Home!

I know I have been slacking the past week and haven't been blogging. We came to Florida to visit my family and I haven't had a chance. I have just been enjoying being home and getting to spend time with my family.

My mom, sister and I have always been very close and it absolutely tears me apart to be away from them. I know that Clayton will always be close to them, but I wish they could be there more with him.

Florida has and always will have this girls heart!
 I love the warm weather, the beaches, the shopping, the fact that there is always something to do. 
This is where I grew up and I truly LOVE everything about it.
It has taken me a long time to grow to love and truly appreciate the place where I was raised.
I guess what they say is true, The Grass isn't always greener on the other side!
I love the southern hospitality down here. How people are always doing something outdoors. 
If you need anything all you have to do is pick up your phone and you have people showing up to help. It is amazing how in the south you have so much more than just a friend, you have a family you created by becoming friends. 
You always have Sweet Tea in your Fridge, Fish Fry's, and BBQ's. You sit on the front porch and talk until the sun goes down. Or spend all day on the river doing nothing and enjoying ever minute of it.

I never knew growing up just how special all of these things were or how much I would miss them if I ever moved and lets just say I know now that I don't want to live without all of these things apart of my everyday life.  I know home is where the heart is and that will always be wherever my husband and son are. But, I sure would love to be able to raise my son where I was raised and let him grow up enjoying and doing all of the things I did. 

Who knows where we will end up a year, or two, or three from now. 
Heck we don't even know where we will be tomorrow.
Guess we will just have to wait and see what is in God's plan for us. 

For now I will just enjoy the rest of the wonderful week catching up with family and friends and showing off my beautiful son! I will post pictures of our trip as soon as I can! 

Until Next Time,
<3 Ashley
