Hey there! I don't participate very much on here, but I read regularly and am so grateful for it! Last time I wrote, I was very new to the idea of 811 and was struggling in most areas of my life. Everything has improved greatly over the past two months! I have a wonderful job as a nanny, and I have just started a work study position at a brand new yoga studio in my area! I have been eating 811 on and off, and have been doing pretty well considering the cold winter.
Every now and then I am overcome with a wave of jealousy when viewing those of you who are located in a warm climate, ha ha. I typically don't let it get me down, but last night I had a disagreement with my mother and was just really not feeling good about being cooped up inside constantly and I ended up getting upset. I had realized I hadn't even cried in two months, so it was kind of a nice release.
Anyway, it's come to my attention that I am need of a vacation. I have been working a lot, and I am really desiring some fresh fruit and time outdoors in the warm sun! I have enough money saved to take a week or two off, so I am going to do it! I am shooting for the end of January. I have read a lot about Homestead, FL and about the Robert is Here fruit stand. I'm really interested in checking that out and maybe seeing the Everglades. I have also been looking into the Everglades Hostel. Has anyone stayed there or know if it is fun place to stay? I've also looked into Nature's Acre, but think it may be too short of notice to do work exchange there. I know there is a handful of you in Miami, and some of you have made the trip out there! Looks like you guys really enjoy it and I'm eager to see for myself! I would love any advice on the best time to go, where to hang out, and of course where to find the best fruit!
Thanks in advance :)
