Whatever it is that is on your heart to do... you can #BeginAnywhere ❤️
I heard @bishopjakes say, “God won’t take the shot for us, but He gives us the tools and the ability to take them ourselves.” How many times do we just wait on #God to make a move for us without making any moves ourselves? I’ve always said, “When you move God moves.” So whatever it is that you want to do, start doing it now...you can begin anywhere!! 👏🏼🙌🏼 #WontHeDoIt
I passed this wall heading out of Tampa and pulled off the exit to find it. (You can literally search Begin Anywhere on maps and it will bring you there!) Its a good one!! #FunWallFashion
We ate so much food tonight and dim sum! 😉🤣 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How do you feel about dim sum?🍙🥟
Each week we spend several hours making our animals weekly medications. We spend $50 each week on bread and peanut butter alone.

Walk in love, as Christ has also loved you.....Eph 5:2
Florida is the southeasternmost U.S. state and a peninsula that borders the Atlantic Ocean, the Straits of Florida and the Gulf of Mexico providing the state with 8,436 miles of coastline. It also borders the states of Georgia and Alabama from North. Nicknamed 'the sunshine state', Florida is mostly famous for its sandy beaches and warm water which attract millions from around the world particularly between late fall to late spring. As Florida's GDP hit $1 trillion in 2018, the fourth economy in the U.S. after California, Texas and New York is going neck to neck with Indonesia. Tourism and hospitality, agriculture, international trade, aerospace, aviation and recreational boating are the main drivers of Florida's GDP. Florida added $2.74 billion to its GDP each day in 2018. It also would be the 17th economy of the world; larger than Saudia Arabia, Switzerland and Argentina if it was a separate country; according to Jacksonville Business Journal.
South Florida's high-rises with high prices!
Is South Florida America's Riviera? The booming luxury real estate in Miami area has made staggering prices sound normal! Big asks surprisingly find responding parties. Miami has also earned the third spot in the nation for the number of high-rises after New York and Chicago.
Two hundred years ago in 1819, the U.S. and Spain signed the 'Florida Purchase Treaty' after years of negotiations. Thus the U.S. officially bought Florida from Spain for $5 million. Today an oceanfront penthouse in South Florida has a $39 million price tag!
The showy powder puff with its numerous stamens come in different colors though the red is the most common one. Also called Calliandra, this plant is native to America's tropical and subtropical regions, and it contains well over a hundred species. It is attractive to hummingbirds and its fuzzy flowers are just lovely.
Leave it to a good ol’ tough moment in life to fine tune your intuition. I went to our usual private beach for sunset tonight and when I got there, the parking lot was overflowing with cars. A private party. Shit. It was getting dark fast so my only other option was to walk Jeffrey on his leash at the public park down the road. Blah. With an annoyed grunt I instantly received the message ‘you’re being pushed here’ and thought ok Guides! I’ll leash him up and go. The park is crowded as everyone in the neighborhood goes to watch the sunset. We make our rounds letting people of all ages ~ kids, couples, elderly, tourists and locals, all say hi. I’m a Sag I love mingling but sometimes I just want to sit in silence and soak up the sunset, ya know? But, the universe pushed me here. As the sun sinks over the water, the stars start to come out and the people start to go home. I make my way to the end of a long dock to get in at least a moment of quiet meditation next to the waves. As I take a deep breath and instantly fall into meditation, I lose all sense of time. After who knows how long, I open my eyes and let out a quiet gasp as I see an elderly woman with tanned skin and a full head of long white hair standing next to me, glancing back and forth between the ocean and me. “May I ask you a question?” She politely says with a German accent. Her smile is so warm I turn my body to face her and say absolutely. She asks me where the nearest hotel is, as she’s traveling from the Canary Islands and doesn’t have a place to stay. It’s a holiday weekend and everything is booked. I give her my best recs as we walk down the dock. We get to my car and before we part ways she says, oh wait dear ~ I didn’t get your name? I’m Stephanie, I tell her. She lights up with a gasp louder than mine ~ ME TOO!! When is your birthday? I ask her. March 31. And yours? She asks. I’m December 6th! I proudly say to my fire sign sista. She smiles and says ahhh... a Sagittarius. And a Sagittarius in LOVE at that! I giggle and say, huh? She gives me a smile that I know she’s given many, many times in her 68 years of life, as she says... I know true love when I see it.

Hi, guys! It’s January & it’s 78 degrees (26 Celsius) in Central Florida so you can find me at the beach right now. Where are you & what is the weather like this winter?🤪☀️🌴
I am actually not spending all of my time at the beach as I do spend most of my day staring at my laptop. However, I am enjoying taking breaks at the beach!🏖
I’ve been super overwhelmed & tired after a lot of travel in 2019 so right no I’m focusing on taking it easy & self-care.
I’m definitely feeling burnt out right now but for once I’m forcing myself to take it easy & one of my goals in 2020 is to slow down a bit!
