As I mentioned last week, I spent Thanksgiving this year with the BF's parents in Florida. It's become tradition that we head south for Thanksgiving and I head north for Christmas and that makes total sense to me. Come November I'm not quite ready for the cold weather. A quick weekend break from the chilly temps is just what is called for. Christmas means snow, so a trip to Buffalo is just what I need.
The "in-laws" live in Southwest Florida and we always make a trip to Sanibel Island during our weekend trip. If you've never heard of Sanibel, that's okay. That's just how we like it. A quaint little island off the coast of Fort Myers, Sanibel Island (and its neighbor Captiva) is the perfect getaway from everything. The beaches are white sand and coated in tiny shells. The island has some amazing restaurants, a long and winding bike trail and a nature preserve. It's the first place the BF and I went on vacation together.
The weather was beautiful with bright sunshine and temperatures in the high 70's all weekend. I wore nothing but summer sundresses and flouncy skirts all weekend. This is a new dress that the BF bought me for my birthday and I was so excited to get to wear it before next May. The mornings were a little chillier, so the booties worked perfectly until I could swap out for my sandals.
I can't wait to visit again in the spring! There's nothing like a weekend away.
