5 Reasons Why Florida Is The Best State To Call Home

The time has come to migrate home for the holidays, and I sure am happy 'home' is sunny Jupiter, Florida.


Fall semester is over and Christmas is right around the corner. Many of us were lucky enough to have come home a time or two during the last few months, but others who may be in a school out-of-state might be seeing home for the first time since August. And although it can be a relief to be home after so long, the chaos of the holidays with relatives, trying to see as many old high school friends during your month home and getting reacquainted with the norms of home life can be challenging.

I am not a native Floridian, so claiming this state over my roots in Texas is hard. But coming home from a semester of school calls for some relaxation and I am so thrilled to have the beach so close by.

Here are five reasons why Florida is the best state to call home!

1. Year-Round Warm Weather

You never have to buy more than a light jacket when you live in the sunshine state. The warm weather can make dinner on the back patio a year-round occasion and never have to turn on the heat inside your home.

2. Sand Instead of Snow

There are so many ways to enjoy the beach. Whether you are there to meditate, go fishing, or just get a good tan, having the ocean so close by can definitely make home very relaxing.

3. Pink Sunsets

Florida is notorious for its beautiful, sherbet sunsets.

4. Acai Bowls Always Close By

If you're a Floridian, you know just how heavenly a good açaí bowl can be. So many different combinations of fruit with sweet flakes of coconut can be the perfect start to a Saturday morning or an easy-going, beach Sunday.

5. Natural, Green Beauty

One of the best parts about this sunny, happy state is that there is lush greenery in every direction.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look.
