I just returned from a “girls only” vacation with my sisters and mother and we spent some time in Key West. It was a first time visit for all of us and I don’t think it will be the last. Between the trolley tour and a stop at Sloppy Joe’s we found some sandals at a great price at Kino Sandals. Just $12 for leather uppers and they’re very comfortable.
Another treat from this stop was a taste of key lime pie. I’m not a fan of citrus-flavored desserts, but enjoyed the slice of pie from the Blond Giraffe Key Lime Pie Factory.
I spent yesterday catching up and compiled this list of recommended reading.
