Diner En Blanc Is Coming To Orlando!

Hi everyone! I hope your week is starting off wonderfully! I’ve missed you all so much. It’s been hectic with work, family and life. I’m sure you can all relate. But, I wanted to stop in to share with you my latest adventure laughing.

 

Diner En Blanc

Have you heard of Diner En Blanc? If not, don’t worry about it. By the time we’re done with this post, you’ll be looking for it to come to your city. Diner En Blanc is a worldwide event, in which people gather in a public space and setup a “pop-up chic picnic extravaganza”. One of the wonderfully mysterious best parts is that the invited guests aren’t told the location of the picnic until the day of the event. This amazing concept began in Paris in 1988, and has grown and spanned the globe.

Captain Bubby's Island Tours & Adventures in Paradise

Pt. 2: Roadtripping With The Divas in Sanibel Island

We’re back! Are you ready for Pt. 2 of our “Road tripping with the Divas: Sanibel Island” adventure? If you need a quick reminder of Pt. 1, please click here. I can’t say enough wonderful things about our fab host resort, Island Inn laughing.  Island Inn and Hillgate Marketing sponsored this trip, but all opinions are my own. So, with that out of the way, let’s talk about our Island Tour and Sea Life Excursion with Captain Bubby’s Island Tours and Adventures in Paradise.

Our second day in Sanibel Island started off with a personal tour with Captain Bubby’s Island Tour. Captain Bubby’s Island Tours is a concierge service that specializes in customized, educational, unique experiences that target exploring the beaches of Fort Myers, Sanibel, Captiva and all of Lee County, Florida. They pride themselves on providing experiences that are tailored to your interests. They love to provide guests access to areas that are off the beaten path to provide the most memorable experience possible. They definitely exceeded that and more with us laughing.

Self-Care and Caregiving

Are you taking care of "You?" Have you ever asked yourself that question? I know I didn't. But, I've started thinking about it more and more. Especially, since I became a caregiver to my mom.

I always say my life changed in the matter of three hours on December 20, 2010. That's the day my father died, and my mom came to live with my sister and I. I went immediately into super saver caregiver mode, and I've never looked back. The next five years would go on to be filled with cursing, crying, depression, stress, laughter, hope, and love. That's quite a cycle isn't it? But, that's a caregiver life. We give so much of ourselves to others; that you sometimes forget about the most important person in this, you.

Road Tripping with the Divas, Pt. 2: Caregiver Road Trip to see Beyoncé

It’s almost summertime, and it’s the perfect time to see some new places. Now, I know the first thing you’re going to say is, “Aren’t you a caregiver?” Yep, and I love to travel laughing. So, this year I’m not letting the grass grow under my feet. I’m taking every opportunity to pack up the ladies and hit the road. 

We just came back from Ft. Lauderdale for mom’s birthday in early April, and I wasn’t about to let the month end without going to see Beyoncé’ in Tampa. Who wants to miss a “Queen B” show? Tracey and I weren’t about to let that happen. So, it was time to strategize the best way to get there affordably with mom.

Birthday Shenanigans & Road Tripping With The Divas

 

It’s been a crazy social April for us. The “travel bug” has bitten me, and I’m determined to make the most of it. Travel can be so challenging when you’re a caregiver. There’s so much planning that has to go into putting a trip together.

It’s a great chance to recharge, and you’ll be surprised how it can make everyone in your household happy. It was the perfect dose of “happiness” for my mom’s birthday.
