Sundial Beach Resort & Spa (www.sundialresort.com) is serious about its U.S. patriotism. So much so that the resort has scheduled official Flag Raising ceremonies at 8 a.m. on Memorial Day, Flag Day and July 4, accompanied by a musical tribute from attendees. A costumed Uncle Sam will share in the festivities.

Want to know what the best thing about Mother’s Day is? Being the mom! I decided to explore this holiday's roots and find out the history of Mother's Day.
Earth Day is a mere two weeks away and already we are trying to find new ways to be more green and eco-friendly.
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.
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.
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”.
