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.
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.
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.
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.
