Home sweet home

We made it to the west coast of Florida just fine, it was a long journey that I am proud to say I drove across the country by myself! We first stopped in Daytona to see Ryan's family and a friend who I worked with in Scranton. We had some bbq's, went to a Cub's game and hung out and I started getting tan again. lol.

Alicia and I, we worked together in Scranton
After Daytona we drove 3 hours to my neck of the woods where we unpacked, organized and ran a million errands before we went on a cruise. Since we never took a honeymoon and haven't had a vacation in over a year a vacation was due. We went on a 4 day cruise to Cozumel and back. There was comedy, night clubs, 2 pools, shops, a casino, and of course food 24/7.

Every night after dinner we came back to a towel that was shaped like an anaimal

We went on this same cruise last year, right about the same time and did an excursion for about $80 a person, that was a little out of the budget this year so we took a taxi to a private beach with a pool and restaurant and only spent $30 total. One downfall, it was not a good spot for snorkeling which was one of the main reasons we wanted to go on a cruise, oh well.

Look a fish!

Beach love

The beach for the day, it wasn't crowded which was very nice

Since being back from our vacation all we have done is job hunting. It isn't fun but it has to be done. I am just glad to be back in an area where I know where everything is. Also, I never thought I'd miss the heat but I actually like sweating, who knew. We like to think of living in PA as a learning experience. I have learned a lot about what I want to do career wise and what type of city I want to live in and Ryan has learned that he wants to be closer to water. We spent a lot of time deciding where to move next and I think moving back to the Tampa Bay area has been one of our better decisions yet.
