packing for the holidays in florida

in july, my parents moved to Florida. they've been spending the past 5 or 6 winters in Florida, and they finally made the move down there. my father's not retired, so he still comes up every couple of weeks from spring through early winter, but then they're in Florida until around late march. 

I used to be bummed about it, but now, it's a nice weekend getaway trip for me, with plenty of Vitamin D from the sun! 

we leave Friday night to fly down to Florida and we're there until the New Year (Jan 1)! in preparation, I've picked up a few new dresses, coverups, and bathing suits for the occasion although we always end up just staying in our bathing suits the entire time. alas, I'm excited to spend the holiday with my family!
