I was missing in action over a long weekend last week. My parents were gracious enough to watch our children so that I could attend a business retreat with Himself down in the Florida Keys. Himself is a Financial Life Planner and this retreat was designed to reconnect his Life Planning study group, update their case studies, catch up on each other’s lives, and make firm plans as how to move forward in living their own dreams as well as helping their clients achieve theirs. I was welcomed into this group as if I were one of them and enjoyed their company immensely. Our hosts were the most gracious people I have ever met and I hope to see them again soon!

While the group worked on confidential case studies my Life Planner’s husband Tim and I escaped to Key West all the way at the end of Route 1. We walked the famous and lively Duval Street, ate at Sloppy Joe’s, which does make the best Sloppy Joe’s in the world, and did a little shopping and site-seeing.
Here are some Carpentaria Palm Trees with pretty red berries.
We dined on the water one day at The Hungry Tarpon and enjoyed watching the pelicans eat their own lunch.
I had the Matecumbe Sandwich which is blackened fish with bacon, lettuce, tomato, melted provolone cheese, and thousand island dressing on grilled sourdough bread. The fish had been caught that morning!
