One of my favorite stops while we were down in Florida was the Edison & Ford Estate in Ft.Myers. They started building it in 1885 and seem to constantly be adding on to it, but most the houses were in a really fun Arts & Crafts style and had beautiful huge porches and really fun little balconies and breezeways on the second floors. There's also a lot of outbuildings and great places to walk along the water, and all of these huge trees all over the property.

One of our favorite parts was the laboratory (pictured above). It was so interesting. I love all the old bottles and test tubes and tools and such. The whole feel of it was great. It's totally inspired me and I want to get all sorts of botanical prints and fun bottles and industrial furniture!

These are acutally a large portion of my pictures from our trip. I was all ready to take tons of pictures of all the museums and house tours we did in Key West but I had backed up these pictures on my laptop the night before and forgot to put my memory card back in my camera that day- so sad! I do have a ton of pictures on my phone though, so I might consider sharing some of them since the Hemingway house in Key West was really interesting too!

 

Bye bye Florida!

Hey guys! We got in late last night so we're still getting settled, but we're back so I thought I'd share a couple photos from my instagram. I am a little sad about being home. I mean, it was in the 80s almost everyday! So beautiful! Not to mention the amazing crepes we ate, historical houses we visited and lots of shorts and dresses I got to wear. Part of me definitely wanted to just plant my feet outside the airport and refuse to move!

Anyway, I'm home now and already have a few DIYs to blog about as well as some real vacation photos I'll share soon!

Yesterday me and my mamma spent a few hours wandering through Terrain. I like to go up there once every season or so just to get inspired, take in all their amazing displays, and drool over literally everything. It absolutely got me in the Christmas-y spirit! People were buzzing all around picking up trees and buying gifts, it was great. Did I mentioned it snowed just the tiniest bit? yep. Crazy magical.

How was everyones Thanksgiving?

The week me and my mom spent out at Goosewing Ranch just happened to be the week they had an amazing photographer out there snapping pictures. I was super excited to see some of these they got during some of the horse games (and one of me and my mom just enjoying the scenery:)

I love taking quick snapshots while I'm on vacation. Silly things like breakfast and old-schol motels I fall in love with help bring back all the little memories.
