Home, Sweet Home

Happy New Year to every body out there!

Our family decided to not be home this Christmas, and the Edwards Xmas Road Trip was created. We left home December 22 and headed south. We spent several days in Nashville & New Orleans, then headed for the Florida Keys. Arrived in Key West on December 29, where we met up with our best friends with whom we had rented a beautiful house right in the heart of downtown. Parked our vehicles and there they sat for almost a week. We wandered, ate & drank really well, napped and in general, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Just click the images below to enlarge.

We live to travel. Miss-Know-It-All has determined that she needs to have a successful profession so that she can afford her travel addiction. Road trips are in our blood. Although a now well-seasoned air traveller, Mr. CFO grew up taking all family vacations via wheels. I have memories of coming home from school on a Friday and my parents telling me to pack because we were headed to New York for the weekend. I cut my teeth on road maps, learning to read them as my uncle, grandmother and I headed to New Orleans, even though I had just come back from there with my parents!

The French Quarter is one of my favourite places in the world. From the beautiful architecture to the sumptuous food, the music, the art, the people — I love it all. There are many places I will go to and never visit again, but the French Quarter is not one of them.

Key West was the party place, full of colour, seafood and key lime pie!

Alas, it is always great to come home to familiar surroundings. There really is nothing better than sleeping in your own bed. As for the rest of the house, the cat, lizard and fish survived during our absence, but sadly, the same can not be said for the quails.

Joyfully back to some routine, sane eating and the gym!

  1. Hello Nadya,
    Love your pictures. You have captured such a sense of your destinations. Great composition and variety of subject matter…….a visual dessert!
    Keep shooting!

  2. It was wonderful to read about your road trip; I too have done this any times to my family, no plans just spontaneous adventure. Living up here in Earlton, 6 hours north nearly from Pefferlaw, close to family and enjoying the beauty of being back near everyone after many years away.

    • I must say, maybe its because the kids are older now and can handle lots of time in the car, we had a blast. It is always an adventure just getting there when you drive. Looking forward to the next one!
