Sanibel for Easter

I had an amazing Easter weekend back home in SWFL. We went to the beach everyday and just reconnected as a family. On Easter Sunday, my mom and I made the trek to Captiva and watched the sunset on the sand with a glass of wine. It was the perfect vacation.

Christmas in Florida

Hello Everyone, I hope y’all are having a great Christmas Eve. It’s a beautiful 75 degrees here in Southwest Florida. If you follow me on Instagram you already know this, but I headed to Captiva Island yesterday to lounge by the Gulf in my favorite beach spot.

I didn’t even touch the water (I knew it was too cold) but it was a perfect beach day. I even feel a little bit tanner. I think Kenny Chesney’s All I Want for Christmas is a Real Good Tan sums up my Christmas list perfectly.

Later in the afternoon, my friend joined me and we stayed and watched the sunset like tourists.

Tourists flock back to the beach starting around 45 minutes before sunset to watch the sun dip into the Gulf. If you watch closely, you might be able to catch a green flash but I’ve never seen one. I will be visiting Sanibel and Captiva a couple more times before I leave to visit Miami and celebrate NYE with some friends. I’m so thankful for such great weather.

Coastal Living magazine has a great feature on Sanibel Island in their December issue. You should check it out to read more about my hometown beaches. I actually brought the issue with me for some beach reading and it was fun to read about Sanibel on Sanibel.

Merry Christmas from the Beach!

#InstaTuesday Week 3


This is a throwback from my Thanksgiving vacation to Sanibel. I took this picture of the seagulls and forgot about it. I then uploaded it with the Kelvin filter.


First (of many) gifts to myself. My birthday is next week, so I thought I’d add some decor to me room. I got this from My Pink and Green Garden on Etsy.

I went to a cooking class in the Fourth Ward and made a Gingerbread house. There is a post to come!

We had an Hawaiian themed Christmas party today at work. Mele Kalikimaka to all who celebrate!


I came back to my cube and I found this as a favor. I love fresh pineapple so I definitely will chop this up soon!
