Palm Trees and Passion Fruit

Our trip to Florida was short (too short), but Chicago is kind enough to greet us with some mild winter temps. We spent our days there lounging poolside, strolling to nearby markets and restaurants to take in all the amazing fresh seafood and tropical fruit we could.

Below are a few of my favorites from the trip ... 

Poolside palms offered afternoon relief from the incredible Florida sun

Key lime margarita, a perfect lunch libation

Lobster pots outside Key Largo Fishery, where fantastic fresh catch is served daily

Coconuts on the property made for tasty treats each afternoon!

I couldn't resist taking a piece of Florida home with me and returned with a dozen delicious passion fruits to help ease me back into this Chicago winter ... it's times like these I ask myself why we don't live in warm weather.
