Because of the way the dates fell this year we were able to spend a week in Miami as part of our holiday which included New Year’s and my birthday – both spent with our friends Jim and Kate over from the UK to celebrate their honeymoon. Honestly, I couldn’t have been happier to enjoy some warm weather and delicious food especially when looking back on a day like today. Not only did I get treated to a day of luxury at The Standard Spa and dinner at their restaurant Lido (seated at a table literally next to the ocean) but had a feast of a last meal at Michael’s Genuine in the Design District where we were joined by our local friends Sean and Stephanie. It made me really appreciate the people in my life, starting with my amazing wife, and was the best possible way to start a new year. Of course being in Miami I had to celebrate my bday in style with some fresh squeezed Mimosas.
