Two weeks ago I returned from a trip to Key West, Florida, an unexpected gift from the Universe (and my husband). This holiday excursion took place during my birthday week (best birthday ever!) where I was bombarded with a barrage of heavenly sensations—sunny blue skies, 80° warmth, the ocean, my first snorkeling expedition, Hemingway’s House, the Butterfly Museum, great meals and good company, and a musician/song writer landlord who insisted on giving us a barbeque and a concert!
However, as all things must come to an end, this lovely vacation came to a screeching halt. On our last day there, I felt like I was coming down with a cold. By the time I had arrived back home, my symptoms had morphed into full blown flu!
