One of the longest standing traditions of Sanibel Island is the annual Shell Festival, put on by the Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club.
As a wrap up for the month, I thought I’d share with you my top 5 favorite things about the island I call home: Sanibel Island.
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.
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?
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.
Looking at the calendar today made me realize that Sunday is the first official day of fall. Growing up, fall was a very different experience than what I have gotten used to over the past 10+ years. I love living in a place where I can enjoy the outdoors year round.
I was watching the Today Show Wednesday and one of the topics of conversation was the K-Mart Holiday Ad that just aired. Apparently it first ran earlier this week, a full 106 days before Christmas! Despite the supposedly premature timing of the ad, it did one thing right: it made me start thinking about what my family will be doing this holiday season.
Today is the first day of school on Sanibel and soon to be for everyone else. What is universal during this time is that need you feel to get in one last summer moment and, at the same time, the lingering concern in the back of your mind that it will be the item on your endless ‘back to school to-do list’ that just won’t get ‘to-done.’ I was facing this very situation these past few days.
I know I’ve talked before about how family friendly Sundial Beach Resort & Spa is but I think I’ve finally figured out what it is that really sets them apart: the staff! Beyond the beach, pool, daily children’s activities and wide variety of amenities, it’s the Sundial Team that keeps families returning time after time.
