I was on my way out to visit family on Longboat Key one late afternoon. On my way, I looked up and saw this beautiful sky with exceptionally white, fluffy clouds and then the sun’s beams started shining through. It was one of those rare photo opps that you have to pull over no matter what, quickly grab your camera and you just keep shooting thinking that the next shot is going to be even better than the one prior. Love these beautiful moments in life especially when you HAVE your camera! If you look closely, you can see a bird in the upper left enjoying just flying around and in the clouds.

Kale, kale, kale everywhere, in the news, Pinterest, Facebook, and even in your booze.

Tried this new salad this week. It caught my eye in the store but really caught my eye as I was prepping my dressing.  Love how shiny the blueberries and other ingredients were from the light above me once back in the office.

There is something quite important about touching the rim when playing some hoops with the guys.  Guys that can do it, do it often and those that only wish they could, pretend that they can. This “Big” for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Suncoast and his “Little” are taking advantage of some new heights together.

Rainy Day

Tis a rainy day for most living in the state of Florida. This photograph was taken though at my former residence on Siesta Key in Sarasota. I loved living there and miss it terribly. I would dangle my feet off the dock and just take it the serene sights, sounds and smells. I would watch manatee swim by, mullets practically fly across the top of the water, crabs wave hello from under, jellyfish gracefully swim through, and a variety of birds sing and impress morning, noon and night. Now that I’m currently residing off the key, I’m thinking the birds there are even more fun than where I am now. Siesta has such a different feel and I need to get back stat. My favorite part though was having one of my really good friends randomly show up at my dock to pick me up for a day of boating. You just knew it was going to be a fun day with him! Living on the water, on Siesta Key, surrounded by wonderful, really fun friends come rain or shine is the perfect place pour moi.
