“Southern suns and sky blue water, smile upon you Alma mater.” One of the fastest trips of my life; we left for the airport Friday afternoon and drove four hours to catch a plane in New Orleans to sunny Miami, so that we could watch our Canes play FSU on Saturday evening. Our flight home left Sunday morning at 9 am. Every minute was worth it. I saw all of my best friends. Tailgating. Our beautiful campus. Miami will always be my second home. 

Southern suns and sky blue water,
Smile upon you Alma mater;
Mistress of this fruitful land,
With all knowledge at your hand,
Always just to honor true,
All our love we pledge to you.
Alma Mater, stand forever
On Biscayne’s wondrous shore.



Limes & strawberries on a Friday night remind me of nights by the pool in Miami, grilling fish & drinking fresh margaritas. 

Miracle Mile

Coral Gables

Good morning, “City Beautiful,” Coral Gables. It reminds me of Spain, or some far away place, the colors and the way the sun hits as it rises over Biscayne Bay.
