We sourced this list of pretty images from our Facebook analytics, sorting by "likes," and found it interesting that many of our top-performing photos are of islands, both domestic and farflung. We also have FIVE photos from Florida! We love the mix of sunny beaches, dramatic sunsets, and the festive Christmas tree that rounds out the top ten.
