{ southern paradise }

We grabbed our beach ball, floats, swimming suits,
and headed out the beach last weekend.
We had the pleasure of hosting our annual summer beach party.
We enjoyed two days filled with friends, family,
swimming, kayaking, yummy food,
and the beautiful Florida landscape
of the ocean and intracoastal waterway.

I moved to Florida in the late 80’s,
and quickly fell in love with the landscape and the beach.
It is a tough job living in such a breathtaking paradise,
but I believe that I do it well.
I must say that I am truly grateful
and feel so blessed to live in a place that I love.

Thanks for stopping by.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you
who have stumbled upon my blog.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my thoughts on life,
DIY skincare obsession and everything else in between.
Smiles, Paula


  1. Absolutely beautiful. My dream is to live there.

  2. I live on the MS Gulf Coast, very close to Florida, so we're there at least several times a year. I've been from Destin, Ft. Walton, down to Orlando, Tampa, etc., and have even visited Cape Canaveral, over on the Atlantic side. However, I don't think I've ever seen an area with rocks like that. It's beautiful and I love it!!

  3. Absolutely beautiful photos from you and your friend.

  4. Beautiful photos! I love Florida. I wish I could live there. :)
