This vacation is not about rest and relaxation but more like our annual four day party. As I'm typing this, I can hear Will Smith singing in my head, "Welcome to Miami, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah" (thank God you can't hear me sing). I don't remember how many times we've gone to ABFF but each year we see great films by emerging filmmakers, have celebrity sightings and attend fabulous parties as well as take in some of the most beautiful beaches in the country.
