Reminiscing About Florida [Personal Post]

I have a lot of beauty posts lined up to write but to be honest, I'm just not in the mood. I feel incredibly down today and nothing is properly cheering me up. Today is the first anniversary of my Nana's death and I'm finding it really hard just to get out of bed without tears escaping my eyes. It's times like this when I just sit and look at old photos and try and think about happier times in my life. Time when things weren't so complicated or upsetting. 

I spent a while looking at photos of my Nana but it was just making me feel worse, so I thought to myself "what makes me happy no matter what?" - and the answer, Florida. I've been going to Florida since I was about 14 years old. I've been many, many times. Too many to count, sometimes twice a year. It all started when my sister moved out there to work at Disney World. I have never, ever been so jealous of someone in my life and my dream is still to work out there for a few months (although that dreams seems very far away from me right now and pretty much impossible to reach). That being said, any time spent in Florida to me has been amazing, it's literally become my second home and nothing makes me happier than thinking about how gorgeous Orlando is and how perfect I find it. So in an attempt to cheer myself up I have compiled a photographic list of things I love and times I have loved whilst in Florida. At least with this list I can look back on it to make myself happier at any time in my life. It's nice to have all of these photos from over the years all together in one post.

Some of these photographs are from 2004, so please excuse any photos of me looking like...well not me. I went through many phases through the years and that is evident in a few of these photos. These are also not in any order, although any were I have brown/black hair are quite obviously ones from much further back.
