Top Ten Things I Love About Being a FLORIDA NATIVE!

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

  • Jack Rogers
