I'm happy to say that yesterday and today I've taken full advantage of where I live. Yesterday included a trip to St. Augustine. With its European-feeling cobblestone streets, outdoor cafes, and hordes of tourists, I really felt like I was on vacation. And more of it today, in my own town! We took the skyway (our very tiny mass transit system that goes nowhere) into downtown, enjoyed lunch on the river, the Friday market in the plaza, the Ramen exhibit (just one piece--cool, but a little disappointing), and best of all, the library. Our new main library is a beautiful, grand building with an upstairs courtyard in the middle. It was perfect weather for sitting in the shade, thumbing through books we didn't want to lug home. Right before we left, I caught a whiff of downtown Jax's signature scent--coffee from the Maxwell House plant. 2 days that reminded me how lucky I am to live in the sunshine state.
And if you've read this far, you're in luck! I have a bunch of push pin sets that I'd like to give away. So, if you leave a comment, I'll send you one. Just be sure I can get in touch with you by email--blogger users, make sure your profile makes your email address available. Thanks and have a great weekend enjoying wherever you are!
update 3/30: Thanks for the comments! All the push pin sets have been claimed, and I'll be mailing them shortly.
