Last week I made a surprise visit to see my mom for an early Mother's Day. My mom was so happy and excited to see me! I was also really excited to see her new place at Ponte Vedra Beach. What's the verdict?Well I absolutely loved it there. Her balcony overlooks a lake with lots of trees around for privacy. We had breakfast out there this morning and it was so peaceful.
