We've made it a family tradition to spend time at our family's condo for spring break for the past 6 years. This week was no exception. Although at our house it is a little tricky to work it in. When one bread winner is a CPA and this is his busiest time of year and the other bread winner (you guessed it-me) is a Realtor and this is my busiest time of year, it makes taking time away a bit of a struggle.
We did work it out and we've had quite a parade of young people 16 to 22 years of age snacking, laughing and depositing sand throughout our condo and parking their tired, tanned bodies on our fold out couch and numerous beds around the condo. Tonight we have just two here as our oldest headed back to FSU today, our youngest is with girlfriends at their homes and our middle child is here with a friend.
We have really enjoyed the relaxed environment, the incredible Panama City Beach sunsets and the wonderful sound of waves crashing against the beach. If I wasn't stewing over deadlines for closings, surveys, home inspections and contract negotiations, I might actually relax.
Before moving here to marry my husband, I came to Panama City Beach first as a child with my parents on day trips and then on long weekends with my high school and college friends. I always went home tired, a little sun burned and happy. All of that hasn't changed much and you may think I get tired and jaded to the water, sun and sand but I don't. I love living in Paradise and even more, I love helping people find their little slice of it.
