Happy to be on Sanibel Island

Its the first day of summer!

I’ve been having a ball this week shellebrating summer with my girlfriends Laura (Orlando) and Julia from Chicago who are┬ávisiting the islands for another reason to shellebrate… It’s Julia’s birthday!

Of course we went to the beach to collect shells…

We weren’t picky about only collecting whole shells because we were inspired to pick up colorful, broken or smaller shells so we could make a Shell Sphere. Isn’t this so sweet? After making one of these styrofoam balls encrusted with hot-glued Sanibel shells collected from this vacation, it will be a memory for a lifetime.

We’ve had a glorious time on the beach catching up on our lives and taking in special moments that make our islands enchanting.
