new love

i'm falling in love. not with a boy. with a city. and the awesomeness it contains. the opportunities and options it promises. love. i'm sure this list will grow exponentially with time, but so far here are the reasons i love Tampa...

1: a gagillion and one fro yo options. the best of which is clearly Yogurtology.
2: sandal season. even though i hate feet, i love wearing sandals and keeping fun toenail polish colors on hand (or foot...aren't i clever)
3: Bayshore Boulevard. flatness. the smell of the bay. fellow activians (i just created that word). i'm no longer the only one out to run/jog/walk/ride/rollerblade. i have company and lots of it!!
4: i can work on my tan any time of day, any day of the week. errands on lunch, post-work workout, weekend session by the pool? don't mind if i do. note to self: beware of straplines.
5: too many churches to choose from. solid churches. not just one or two. can i get an amen?
6: the pei wei i just spotted today. i have died and gone to heaven. tofu fried rice bowl, come to mama!
7: driving to work in straight lines. no more weaving and driving in crazy patterns to basically end up 50 yards from where you started after a 10 minute trek.
8: discovering that i have unlimited access to a keurig and what seems like 48 coffee options at work. yes, puh-lease!!

tampa has been good to me. here's to more floridian awesomeness in the days ahead...


live unashamedly :: laugh uncontrollably :: love unconditionally.
