Valentine’s Day for Him

There’s no question about it: Valentine’s Day is a holiday for women and children. From the cartoon Valentine’s Day cards you buy for your kids to distribute at school to the candy and chocolates you get from you significant other, the main recipients of the holiday’s offerings are certainly not men.
I proposed an idea to my husband this year: How about I plan Valentine’s Day and surprise you?

Christmas with Friends

Christmas Entertaining: Decking the Halls

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.

Holiday Travel Tips

Holiday Travel Tips

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.

Picking the Right Gifts

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.

What I’m Thankful For…

Growing up, my family had a Thanksgiving tradition where everyone at the table had to stand up and say three things they were thankful for that year.

Sundial Resort Server Danzel Garriques – Serving with Flair

I was at Sundial a couple of weekends ago and I caught one of my favorite servers being filmed. His name is Danzel Garriques and he was being filmed because of his unique style of serving drinks: ON HIS HEAD!
