    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.

    With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, I thought it would be a good time to share some tips, tricks and resources that I have found to be helpful over the years.

  • Celebrating Halloween on and around Sanibel

    Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. From my Princess Leia days to the ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ themed party in college to now helping my own children with their costumes, I have always found the holiday to be all about fun, creativity and socializing. Even though Halloween is a week away, the events have already begun.

    I can’t believe Halloween is only 2 weeks away! I feel like the kids just started school a week ago and already it’s approaching crunch time for final costume decisions. This year I will be escorting Captain America and Theodora, the wicked witch played by Mila Cunis in “Oz the Great and Powerful”.

    Earlier this week, someone told me that tomorrow is National Golf Day. When I shared this with my husband announced he would be playing hooky on Friday to celebrate his new favorite holiday. My son overheard this, then quickly declared he too would be playing hooky and ”going to play golf with Daddy".

    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.

  • Planning for the Holidays

    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.

  • An Easy Way to Make the Most of your Fresh Fish

    Author:  sundialmgr   |  Date:  August 23rd, 2013

    Talking about fishing charters in my last post had me craving fish all week! I completely lucked out when a friend called and told me her husband had just come back from a fishing trip and brought home way too much Grouper. Grouper, for those not familiar with it, is a large fish with white meat that cuts into thick filets and holds up very well while cooking. It does not have an overtly ‘fishy” flavor and thus lends itself to a variety of seasoning styles based on the preference of the chef and diners. Here is a simple, kid friendly recipe that is great for lunches, parties or even Labor Day!
