A Floridian Christmas


I'm laid up in bed today with another cold, not able to do much, so I thought I'd post some of the pictures from my trip home to Florida for Christmas. I realized three things when I looked back through them: (1) even though my parents live on a 'horse farm,' I took no images of the horses there, (2) that my mom and dad have a lot of cats , many of which don't appear in these shots, and (3) I completely failed to take advantage of the background for outfit shots.

Oh well, it was nice to take a break and hang out with my family and the cats and sheep for a few days:)
