Naples Pier



Naples, Florida is where I spent a lot of time in the summer as a kid visiting my grandparents. They had a condo on the beach along Gulf Shore Blvd.  It was mere steps from my grandma’s building before you were on that soft powder white sand.  My mom and I called it our happy place. I have so many wonderful memories from there, walking to Wiggins Pass, eating dessert on the lanai and hoping to see the green flash.  I still go back to Naples and other parts of southern Florida, where I have friends and people I consider to be family.  My grandmother, with whom I had a very special bond, passed away in August of 2017.
