just a little longer, please

I really didn't want to come back. But life must go on.
So here I am after 10 days of a really fabulous vacation, already wishing I could go back to...

Sanibel Island.


Here's the view from right outside the door of the little place we stayed.




I must admit, I peeked at my email a couple of times while I was gone, and was amazed that my first giveaway contest commenter, Nic, guessed it right away! Knowing who won highly influenced my shopping for the giveaway prize. Intimidated me, in fact, because Nic is originally from Hawaii - what kind of island-ish stuff could she possibly want?? Then I stumbled upon something I knew instantly was the right giveaway prize, because she & I share a common passion for books...



Sanibel Scribbles by Christine Lemmon, a local Sanibel resident
I bought an autographed copy, and it's yours, Nic!

(hope you don't mind, though, I read it on the drive home!)


We did a whole lot more while in Florida, but I'm still catching up on laundry, unpacking, and cleaning sand & trash out of the van, so more pictures will follow eventually...
