Our Florida Plunge Story by Amy Mulder 1307 days…3 years, 6 months and 30 days…that’s how long it took from the moment we made the conscious decision to relocate to the actual date we moved into our home in Florida. I remember that epiphany very vividly. We were vacationing at Walt Disney World on February 2, 2011 and we were swinging in the hammocks at the Coronado Springs Word to the faint of heart-relocating to Florida (or anywhere) is not easy.

Southwest Airlines began non stop flights from Dallas Love Field to Orlando International Airport on Monday, October 13th and in typical Southwest Airlines style, the celebration was, well MAGICAL!

5. Call Old and New Utilities to reconfirm end dat
We are The Parker Family! We are a family that is about to live out our dream. After many years of talking about moving our family to Florida, we are now 2 weeks away from taking the Florida plunge. We are moving to Orlando! We have a long history of spending our Summers in Southwest Florida at Ft Myers Beach. We love it down there. It’s so relaxing and we enjoy spending several weeks down there with family and friends. Even with the knowledge we had about Florida, we still h
