ooo heaven is a place on earth...


It's days like this that I miss Gainesville.

I know, I know—I'm 26 years old. This means an entire class of kids has gone through college since I've graduated. My brother, who was 4 feet tall and 65 pounds when I left for UF, is now 20. And the freshmen in college right now were actually born in the 90s. I get it. I'm old.

Really, I just miss my friends. I actually can't think of anything I'd rather be doing right now than sitting on the patio at the Swamp. And when I say "right now," I really mean right now—10:55 am is a perfectly acceptable time to down buckets of Miller Lite, don't you think? All of my Florida favorites would be there and afterward we'd walk across the street to Pita Pit before heading back to Cluck U at 3:30 for quarter beers. Of course, dinner would be Mexican at ADPi, topped off with Peppermint Surprise. Oh what a glorious day that would be...

Lady loves, this is really a shout-out to you. I love you more than Leonardo's Pizza.

I don't know if I should smile or cry...that sounds like EXACTLY the day I need right now. Sigh...

Leaving work in 36 minutes to head down to the best town there is. :) Yum, peppermint surprise. Katie K and I were talking about that this weekend with Lauren W and Kelly C. Oh Nina, my hero.
