Admittedly, I’ve let this site slide. I post a lot on my other site, Bucket List Publications, and it’s grown so much that I just don’t have time for this site. I’ve decided to make this site a “behind the scenes” site that talks about the real experiences behind Bucket List Publications and tonight’s experience at Longboat Key Club & Resort is the perfect starting point. Why? Because I drank my way through dinner as I got to know locals who have a membership at the club. With a $150/day budget, it was more valuable to me to keep drinking than it was to have dinner. Come along for my unedited version of Longboat Key Club. Continue reading →
I’m cheap. I don’t like to spend a lot of money dining out. It infuriates me when I order steak and pay the hefty price tag only for it to arrive burnt or over cooked. I’m not a food connoisseur and I couldn’t tell you the first thing about cooking, but I do know my medium-rare Filet Mignon. I also know good service and if I’m at a high end restaurant, I expect it. It should be the standard but it’s not. I visited Flagler Steakhouse at The Breakers tonight and I had heard fantastic reviews. From the moment I walked in the door until I left, it lived up to the hype. My Filet Mignon was worth every penny, the service was the best I’d received in years and the setting was picturesque. I’m booked for The Italian Restaurant (the actual name) tomorrow night but I might change my reservation to Flagler Steakhouse again just to have the perfectly prepared Filet Mignon or to chat with Christine the waitress; the way she interacted with Athena was like she knew her for years. I always find something to say that a restaurant just isn’t worth the cost, but Flager actually is worth every finger-licking cent. Continue reading →
Have you ever been to Lion Country Safari in Palm Beach, Florida? It’s jam packed with unbelievably fun things to do for children and adults. It’s a drive-through safari with hundreds of animals, but it also offers animal displays and encounters, animal feeding experiences, amusement park rides, a water playground, boat tours and dining. It was the best of all of our favorite family-friendly parks combined into one destination. Continue reading →
We did so many family-fun things today in Palm Beach, Florida that I don’t even know where to begin, but one activity was so fantastic that I find myself typing on my phone in the bathroom of the hotel while Athena sleeps peacefully in the bedroom. The Chesterfield Hotel offers a Little Prince and Princess Tea Party and we felt like royalty when we attended today. Continue reading →

10 countries and countless cities made it on my 2013 Bucket List. France, Dominican Republic, Bermuda, Jordan, Aruba, Curacao, Canada, USA, Mexico, and Fiji were all part of my whirlwind of adventures and new experiences. I never envisioned such an amazing year of opportunity; my life continues to be a dream come true. I am blessed. Some people create a bucket list because they are dying; I created one because I want to live.
Here are my top ten favorite travel photos from 2013.
Number 7 – Pink Shell Beach Resort, Florida
Situated on 1,500 feet of sugary white sand at the tip of Fort Myers Beach, Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina looks like a postcard.
