One of the longest standing traditions of Sanibel Island is the annual Shell Festival, put on by the Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club.
Spring Training in Fort Myers is almost here! In less than a week, all of us here in Sanibel will be able to go see some of our favorite teams.
The current task on my plate is to sort through the various Sanibel Island meeting venue options and give a summary of all the amenities and stats on each.
CROW stands for the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife. Sanibel is an island that is truly dedicated to maintaining and preserving its native inhabitants and natural resources.
It was over 13 years ago that my husband Joshua and I got married at Sundial Resort. We still celebrate our anniversary there every September. I got to thinking about this because now is wedding planning season and recently I have seen a lot of articles on trends, tips and new things going on in the wedding world. Since I have my very own blog and first hand experience getting married, I figured that I would throw my hat into the ring of nuptial advisors.
When it does cool off a bit, our family likes to try and take advantage of the many indoor activities available on the Sanibel Island.
It’s amazing how festive Sanibel Island is this time of year! There are a lot of holiday events and the season really kicks off with our annual Luminary Festival, which is an island wide event named for the hundreds of lights put our around the town.
It’s time for the family to return to Sanibel and spend Christmas with us. Just like with Thanksgiving, the plan is to have the big meal at Sundial Resort but do a few more casual activities at the house.
However, before the out-of-towners arrive, my husband and I are hosting a Friendsmas. Friendsmas, a.k.a. Friends Christmas, is a fun way for all of us to gather and celebrate the holiday without it conflicting with travel plans and family time.
Thanksgiving was a huge success. Both of our families had a wonderful time once they got to Sanibel Island and Sundial Resort. The key point being: once they got here. In our excitement over not having to travel this year, we overlooked the collective lack of travel experience held by our respective families.
When our Thanksgiving meal is packed away in our bellies, the family and I sit together and discuss plans for the next holiday on the calendar: Christmas. We talk about decorations, plans for meals and extended family and, of course, gifts.
