The Bok Tower Garden's:part 1

Thank you so much again for your encouragement,thank you for reading and for sharing your personal thoughts.  To everyone… whether you’re going through career changes, pursuing higher education, soul searching, battling illnesses, or celebrating moments of joy, from the bottom of my heart, I wish you the very best and hope that all of your dreams come true.Thank god this feeling sometimes is temporary one find some inspiration and things seems better then before.
In my case the turn around was a surprised from my husband.He took me to The Bok Tower Garden a truly gorgeous place and very spiritual.I did truly find my self there there was this logan that said "i come here to find myself","its so easy to get lost in the world".Oh my were this words spot on!!!
My husband knows me so  well,he knows the things i love and how much i miss Europe so for him this gardens were what came  close to Europe and their gorgeous gardens.Living in Florida there is no mountains, the landscape is very limited.I felt i was transported to a different place and time, what a peaceful place.We even witnessed a wedding and ironically we were celebrating our 14 years anniversary ,imagine how i felt standing there listening to the pastor and hearing the couple saying their vows.I got tear up and i'm looking forward to my 15 years wedding anniversary and hopefully i can renew my vows in that same place.Something i have wish on doing for quite some time.Little things like that can truly make such a huge impact on me it feels like rebirth some how or a spiritual cleanse.
I hope the pictures translate what i felt that lovely afternoon,the creator of this place was a editor from what is now know as cosmopolitan .He build a gorgeous mansion and surrounded the place with an enormous  gardens that were his sanctuary .The center of garden has a tower that provide music and has 60 bells that ring every other hour.All around that area is a orange plantation that belongs to the same family.
A man that had little education but found a way to grow educationally and professionally ,always fighting for a cause and for the environment.If you have a chance and if the story interest you look his story up and if you are ever here in Florida i encourage you to visit that place but only if you are a nature lover. 
My little boys had so much fun there running around ,watching different animals and liking all the flowers.I don't know if i have told you but my little man has a thing for flowers and he always get any one he sees for his mommy.Trip like this is what a i remember from my childhood my grandparents always took my siblings and me every Sunday on a trip and this is what i wanna leave my children also.To care for family time and discover nature at it's best.
I took the opportunity to take different outfit pictures ,well it was my husband idea so i will be posting 3 series from this trip.I really hope you guys like it.We are already planning another trip since we didn't get to see all of it and next time i'm planing a picnic just the two of us.A good wine,cheese and grapes and a lovely afternoon together,looking forward to it.


P.S:Hope everyone is safe in the affected areas by the Huracan Sandy!! .



Much love,
Carina

  4. you are such a great writer you made me feel as if i were with you -- i've been to florida several times, and unless you are on the beach it is so flat and redundant, definitely no where near as beautiful as europe. i do hope you will be able to have your 15 anniversary there, it is a gorgeous place! love your look -- you look like carrie bradshaw, adorable!!
