The spiral of life
Curves ever winding
inner to outer
and back to center again
A journey of beauty
the spiral of life

This past week the spiral of my life brought me to Miami Florida! I’ve never been to Florida before, so it was a fun, new adventure for me!
My sister and her husband flew me there to spend a few days with them while they are on vacation down there. How nice of them was that?! I’m so grateful!
But do you know what guys? The winter loves me so much that it followed me all the way from Minnesota and made iguanas fall from the skies! Yep. They had a windchill advisory and everything. One local told us it was the coldest temps they’ve had in 5 years. I blamed myself and promptly apologized. 😉
But being a cold-hearty Minnesotan, I found it amusing that they issued a windchill advisory for 35 degree weather, and my sister and I giggled to see many of the locals all bundled up in winter clothes. You guys think this is cold? Bah, you haven’t seen nothing! Incidentally, I hadn’t packed any of my own warm clothes, thinking it was gonna be 80 degrees. I didn’t even wear a coat to the airport, knowing I wouldn’t need it. But I was wrong, it was indeed quite nippy on Tuesday evening. But that didn’t stop us from going out to the hot tub that night. The only other people we met out there with us were from Canada. Maybe they’re the ones to blame for bringing the winter weather! Hahaha!
When I got back home, I heard that the National Weather Service had also issued a warning about “Falling Iguanas” on their Twitter page and that really took the cake! But in actuality, that’s not funny. Poor things! And they weren’t really falling from the skies obviously, they were falling from the trees.
I didn’t see any fallen iguanas while I was there, but I did see one, and thankfully, it was alive and well. It was really cool to see. I snapped a picture of it, but didn’t get a good quality shot…
You can’t tell from the photo, but it was HUGE! I wish I could have gotten closer, but it ran away as I approached. I was lucky to even get this shot.
I feel lucky to have even seen it at all! And lucky to have seen all of the other wonderful and beautiful things I saw while I was in Florida too! I have 300+ other photos that I snapped during the few short days I was there. Excessive much? 😉 But I won’t make you scroll endlessly to look at them all, I’ll try and share them little by little in future posts.
But I will share this one before I go…

May your day be with love! And may the spiral of life bring you to beautiful places, people and things today…
