I was pretty excited to learn that our annual conference was being held in Florida. I’d never been there, and I really looked forward to checking out the area during my downtime from the conference. But that did not alert me immediately that I would be suddenly looking through Buckhead luxury apartments for a place to move into within just months! It all happened so suddenly when I was there at one of the conference events. I met one of the directors from our Florida branch, and he really liked me. He’s the one who asked if I would like to transfer. I told him I would give it some thought and get back to him.
I can’t say that I was in love with the state I was living in before. It’s a bit boring there. We don’t have a lot of things to do in nature like people in Florida have. And there are so many wild animals in the state that I would never see back wehre I lived before. I had never been a beach nut before because I really hadn’t been on any beach trips before. I had stopped at one with my mom once when were traveling through California. But we didn’t spend time there. We just stopped to look at how pretty the water and sand were before we quickly drove on.
I really enjoyed my time in my new state during my short visit. I love the beach atmosphere. And people where Hawaiian shirts! I guess the people here just call them tropical shirts, but we had a different name for them where I lived before. People wear sandals all the time too. it does not matter if it is winter or autumn or spring. I love the feel of not being stuck wearing a heavy suit or sweaters most of the year.
