Can you imagine this is where I actually live. I'm on vacation everyday as my husband likes to remind me often of being a "work/stay at home mama"
I love being a NATIVE to life in Paradise. I can tell you I get
upset annoyed whenever I hear people complain about the cost of living, complain about the drivers, the people, the jobs, and everything else people complain about because it isn't like it is where they are from-my answer-as brash as it may sound *wink* GO HOME! If it is so GREAT in _______________, then go back where you came from, if not than soak in a sunrise at the beach, get to know the REAL NATIVES of Palm Beach, and savor some local fare!
Somethings I LOVE about being a Palm Beacher...
Being able to go almost anywhere-BAREFOOT
Flip Flops and Sundresses are acceptable attire
Pink & Green aren't just for preppies-but for Palm Beacher's
Living in Paradise Year Round!
I remember when.....
I-95 stopped at PGA Blvd.
The Palm Beach Mall and Twin City Mall (both-no longer) were the places to be!
Jog Road was the boonies.
Wellington-never heard of that?
1st Baptist of WPB (downtown) was the largest skyscraper
Beaches were as wide as long
Everyone owned a boat
Braman Motorcars used to be the movie theater for the Palm Beaches
Families would bike everywhere after dinner in the summer
It was $5 to go to the Rapids (they only had the 4 yellow slides-really!)
Tarazzo floors & Jalousy windows were made for natural A/C purposes
and so many more..please feel free to comment below on what you rememeber!
