I moved from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to South Florida about two months ago. When I arrived it was a Friday, Feburary 19, 2010. To me the temperature was beautiful although when I caught the news, later that day, the weatheman was complaining about how cold it was. I don't know if many people know about states up North, but during the winter months it is extremely cold and we are not exposed to very much sunlight. The day we chose to leave, we left behide 26 feet of snow that accumilated from two major snowstorm. So when we arrived in South Florida it was like stepping out of the freezer and into an oven, HA! So anyway, when I arrived in South Florida I was over weight and very pale ( Hello! Me, a black woman). After unloading all the boxes from the truck, then unpacking them I was tired. So my family and I started to settle down in our new surrounding when reality hit me. I found myself in a new state and a new home that was huge, to me anyway, comtaplating what I was going to eat. When suddenly I realized I wasn't in Philly anymore....
