Stranger in the 305

Captains Log: Star date 81309923.

So, I made it down to Miami safely yesterday. It was like a 7hr long directors cut of “The Fast and The Furious: Miami Speedway” Seriously, I think I drove at 90 an appropriate, legal speed while there were people around me flying at 90mph.

As I lay here and type this there were things I instantly noticed about Miami.

1. people can’t drive/ drive suicidally. I saw people switch lanes with only a car length of space; I counted 45 near accidents on my way here.

2. the street names? I shouldn’t have to pass SW 93 st, ave, ct, pl  THEN see SW 94th… I propose Miami gets their streets renamed, immediately.

3.We met the planner, she’s amazing. Yes, she lives way down in Miami, but it was totally worth it. I was so happy to listen to her speak with her oh so perfect Jamaican accent. It didn’t sound like Ms. Cleo, or any other negative stereotype, but sounded genuine. I hope I was paying attention to WHAT she was saying instead of how it sounded…

and to top it off, she gave us mangoes !!! I hope they don’t show up in her fees…

Anyways, You should check her out if you want a wedding planned. She’s giving us a GREAT deal on her rate.

We finally made it to our destination, and we were greeted by 3 adorable girls (and by we, I mean she) as we hung out and ate chocolate cake, I was given the opportunity to gaze into the past of my fiancée.

She hasn’t changed. You could tell by the photos that her feisty-ness  was developed and cultivated at a young age…

Today there are a few things we are going to try and do while we’re here… unfortunately, the list of places to go a few friends of mine sent me won’t be completed.
