endless summer

November 26, 2010

3:30 AM wakeup call
even i (the quintessential early bird) was less than thrilled about boarding our second crack-of-dawn flight in 48 hours.

but josh loves his miami thanksgiving (it’s pretty much a non-negotiable to him), and we were determined to spend time with both of our families yet again.

miami thanksgiving is different
not in the gustatory sense . . .

you can imagine which one of us had room for dessert
but in almost every other respect.

there are >50 attendees at our miami thanksgiving . . .

seats are prearranged. i lucked out seated next to this stunning conversationalist!
the preferred methods of travel are a little different:

cousins departing in style
the scenery doesn’t exactly scream “winter wonderland”. . .

water, water everywhere
and an impromptu pool party is more than likely to erupt.

even babies get in the action
all in all, it’s pretty fabulous. but as a runner, i have to say —

there is a downside to all of this sun & fun
at 9 am!!? josh and i are headed out on what is to a become a sweaty slog. i will try to keep my complaints to a minimum as we tread through the beautiful palm tree-lined streets.

see you back in NC!
