Florida’s weather has been up and down this winter/early spring. We went from freezing our hind ends off when it was dropping down to the 20’s here in Central Florida, to melting the next week when our temps soared 15-20 degrees higher than our average temps. Can you say crazy? Don’t get me wrong; I love our winters, and I’m not a massive fan of the sweltering heat may through October.

He will not even look at soup once it hits about 74 and above. Trust me on this one, friends. Just out of curiosity, do you eat soup all year round or only in the cold weather?

Soup is forgiving; soup also doesn’t judge you when you are under the weather. Soup tries to comfort you on those days; soup even doesn’t mind if you’re in your pajamas, because your too cold or lazy to get dressed on a cold day. That’s why I love soup.
