Welcome to the tour of our new Florida home! We’re all settled in and super excited that you’ve come by to see our new place. We live in a community with some really nice amenities and I’ll be sharing those with you today as well.

Now, we’ve heard people have seen a 4-5 foot alligator in our lake. Eeekkk! Actually, they also say, if there’s water in Florida there’s probably a gator. But, if you don’t bother or feed them, they won’t bother you either. We’ve also heard that since all the construction people haven’t seen as many gators or any at all – wait there were more than one?! John and I haven’t seen Mr. Gator (yet) but we could one day. I’ll keep you posted on this and try to get a picture of him if I’m able to take my eyes off of it to snap a picture!
We did see a beautiful bald eagle one day at lunch. He circled our lake, swooped down to catch a fish and then ate it across the lake from our house. That was really awesome!!
A new washer and dryer are always a nice perk with a new house. We did add the white cabinets to the left for extra storage. The little red and white heart on the handle was made by Chelsea when she was young and every house we live in we put it in our laundry room. That may seem silly but it’s special to us. We also still have our son, Andy’s little wooden wren birdhouse that he made when he was young too.
