It is official! We are moving to Florida! Everyone keeps asking me why… well why not! Why not go live by the beach for a bit and give it a try. We are not tied down here and have jobs that let us work anywhere… so why not!
Just as we made it official we received this little present in the mail from my sister…
Funny right!!!!?!?! Who knew you could mail a coconut! Just so you know the background story of why my sister sent us this coconut, you should know that my hubby lived in the Philippines for two years before we were married… that adorable man wrote me a letter every single week for two years! He never missed! We were engaged 3 weeks after he came home and married 3 months after that.
While living in the Philippines he drank from these young coconuts all the time. He has been craving them since we got married, almost 10 years ago now. Whenever we go to Florida he is always eyeing them, but is too big to climb up a tree to get them!
He tries throwing rocks at them, using a sticks to poke at them, pretty much whatever he can think of. Now that we have a six year old who is half monkey – half boy he has encouraged him to climb up the palm trees to pick the young coconuts for him. Don’t believe me… see pics below!
So yes, now we are moving to Florida in one month where we can have all the young coconuts we want!
Although, here is my motivation for moving! Starting off my day with a morning run on the beach is absolute bliss!!!!! Florida here we come!!!!!!
