Posted in: Photos, Top Ten

It seems so odd that I’m doing a round-up of photos from Florida, of all places. I lived there for years. I might as well do a photo round-up of my own house. Actually, come to think of it, I have done that.

Aaaaaaaand on that note, here’s ten photos from that strange and magical place I used to call home.

  1. I show my enthusiasm for Jews for Jesus. And vacation rentals.

    I'm also fairly intrigued by Boston Nails and New Wave Fitness.

  2. I may have screamed when I saw the license plate on the car in front of us – it read “Pastry Chef.”

    Pardon the quality of this photo. My hands start to shake whenever I think of dessert.

  3. “Watch for Buzzards” sign, spotted on the way to Lake Placid, Florida.

    Interestingly, the sign on the other side of the bridge read, "Watch for Vultures."

  4. The beaches in Indialantic.

    We should have just commandeered these chairs. Pretty sure we could have taken on the retirees that they belonged to.

  5. Nuclear power plant near Orlando, Florida.

    I'd forgotten these existed. They always creeped me out as a kid.

  6. Approaching thunderstorm near Lake Placid, Florida.

    We outran it.

  7. Unintentionally raunchy “cumquat” street sign, Lake Placid, Florida.

    "Um, that's not how you spell kumquat." - Giselle

  8. Unitentionally raunchy “Speed Hump” sign, Indialantic, Florida.

    Seriously? This ... this is just too EASY.

  9. Sunset in a parking lot, Lake Placid, Florida.

    This was right next to the Beall's Outlet where we found Melrose Place perfume.

  10. With Giselle and Christine.

    A blonde, a brunette, and a redhead ... it's a really good thing we didn't walk into a bar.

  11. Matching friendship bracelets.

    Bought these in Indialantic - one for me, one for Giselle.

  • I didn't do nearly all that I set out to do today. But I had a lovely dinner thanks to this man and some excellent out of town guests. So perhaps the measure of a day isn't always about that damn checklist. (Maybe. Ask me again tomorrow when all the stress hits me. 🤔😅)
  • You can't expect things to look *exactly* like the picture in the cookbook. But sometimes they do anyway. #alisonroman #diningincookbook #diningin #cocoabananabread #instadesserts #baking
  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴
  • "I hit the jackpot." That's how I once heard Michael J. Fox describe his marriage years ago, and it stayed with me. I've never found a better way of describing our relationship than that. Bells ring. Lights flash. Coins spill everywhere. Now, where's my complimentary breakfast?
  • Someone sent Rand socks with his face all over them, and he's really bothered by this but I'm gonna rock the hell out of them.
  • I told him to stop looking at the camera.
  • Eating junk food on the ferry with this guy right before dinner is kind of the dream.

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
