I live in Florida. I’ve never been a huge fan of Florida.
Specifically, I live in Central Florida…. home of the theme park. I’m not a fan of theme parks.
But where I live…. my area.. away from the concrete and the traffic and the World’s Largest McDonalds…… is beautiful. Truly.
If you’ve been on HMM awhile, you know we have bear, deer, wild turkey, hawks, great blue herons, and all other manner of wildlife in our yard daily. We have snakes. We have gators. It is nutty. Really crazy. It is home. I love it here.
My backyard is State Park.. one of more than a dozen State Parks in our area. Today, the kids didn’t have school. My sister and I loaded up our 6 children, a blanket and picnic supplies and headed to a park about 25 minutes away.
For 3 hours, we didn’t encounter another person. Not one. THESE are the parts of Florida that make me love it. Not the beaches, not the theme parks.. the lakes and rivers and acres upon acres of moss-covered trees. This is the real Florida.. Just wanted to share it with you
