Today I am leaving bright and early to pick up two of my college besties at the Fort Lauderdale airport to make our way down to Miami for a few days. I know I call myself a South Florida girl, but I must tell you a secret…. I have never spent more than a few hours in Miami. A lot of it has to do with the fact I know almost no one down there. Another contributing factor is that Miami intimidates me to no end and seems like its own little subculture to which I will never belong. With all that said, I am ready to overcome my anxiety and I am super excited to spend a few days relaxing by the water and sightseeing with my friends. It has been forever since we have spent time together. FOREVER.
