You can take the GRITS out of Florida, but you can't take Florida out of the GRITS!

I need 2 hearts!

I miss level ground and straight roads and being able to simply go around the block if you miss a turn.
But driving on all the twisty-turny roads can be kinda fun.

I think I'd rather deal with roaches than stink bugs.

I like that my kid can build a fort in the woods and nobody messes with it.

I miss being able to smell salty air whenever I want.
I like being able to go to the top of a mountain (or hill or whatever they call them here) and look out and see amazing vistas.

I miss the awesome summertime thunder storms.

I miss knowing my way around the entire southern half of Florida and being able to drive fearlessly and without a map or GPS anywhere I want.
It's kinda fun learning my way around, though going through one of the tunnels and going downtown are off limits to me right now!

I miss my family.
I love being married to the most wonderful man in the world, who tries daily be the best father and husband he can be.

Is it alright to say I have two homes?  Here and Florida?
I wish I was like The Doctor and had 2 hearts, then I could easily say that my heart belongs to both places!

Dude, I need about a thousand hearts.

But I hear you, completely.
