WHAT'S THE BEST JOB IN FLORIDA?

Welcome to Florida.

Now that our son is three, he is already talking about what he wants to be when "He's Big". We spend hours chasing each other on scooters; one of us will be the "bad guy" and they other will be "policeman". We also rescue stuffed animals from high places in our home with our "firetruck" - truth be told it's an overturned turned reading chair with a red blanket so, I was surprised when he told me adamantly what his adult dream was.

"Construction worker"

There's so much new construction by us right now and we see a bunch of big cool trucks on a weekly basis so I guess it makes sense. I've just sold a couple of new homes that are presently under construction so we have visited the lots a few times together. Little boys and big trucks do go together and probably always will.

I just hope that wherever they are Sonny and Ricardo are not disappointed.....

HAVE YOU VISITED THIS PRIVATE BEACH?

Welcome to Paradise.

Visitors and new residents always ask me about Siesta Key Beach and many will ask me to compare it to Lido Key. I love Lido, we had our wedding reception at the Ritz Carlton Club there and I have had more than one cocktail at the Tiki bar behind the Ritz. but here's the thing....

I LOVE NOKOMIS BEACH!

I thought it was crazy when the county said they were going to spend a few million dollars renovating the bathrooms and snack bars - but they were geniuses! The restrooms, elevated walkways and snack bars make it a great yet quiet destination on the Gulf of Mexico.

You can usually find us there one morning a week. Everyone in the family loves it. me especially.
