This is a username I started using a few years ago. Nothing too exciting; jus my first name plus moon - thought it sounds nice.
We live in beautiful Sarasota, Florida. My family has been here for many generations, usually having a winter home here (yes my great great grandparents were some of the first "snow birds"!). I lived in Florida until I was 8, then my parents and I moved to Oregon, where I lived until I was 22, then to Central America, and now we all ended up back here in Florida. My husband is a marine biologist and surfer, and having family near made Sarasota even more appealing to settle down.
Sarasota is rare gem in Florida because there is still a sense of comminity - despite all the snow birds and retirees. There is so much culture, great restaurants and family activities. The beach here on siesta key was voted number one this year - husband and I got married on the beach, and my son has grown up spending every week there - we live 5 minutes away. We also live 10 minutes from Myakka State park; a beautiful, large natural area where we can hike, camp, and enjoy "old" Florida.
Camping or luxury hotel?? I am the girl who backpacks with beaty supplies, and camps with a new pedicure. I grew up with both parents being biologists and naturalists, so camping is always ideal to me.....HOWEVER......it is hot hot hot here and very humid. The mosquitos are terrible. Camping in the summer in Florida is never too comfortable, but especially pregnant! I will choose luxury hotel
