strange weed looks like a grape vine

I have a strange weed in my yard that looks like a grape vine. I just planted grape vines, but I know they aren't from them. They are extremely tiny, but have close to the same leaves. Is there a weed that looks like them? I'll try and take a picture and place it on here if i can. It only is growing in one small spot, but there are no types of grapes that live close to us in the wild. The closest I've seen them is Micklers Beach and that's 45 minutes away.

Wild grapes and muscadine are extremely common. You should not have to travel anywhere near 45 minutes to find them. They should be as close as some nearby undeveloped areas. Florida has more than one native species. If you posted pictures, it might be possible to ID it.
