Riding into Summer

One of my favorite things to do is just explore new neighborhoods. Whether it's take a drive around a new area or running down a new street, I love looking at people's homes and gardens and seeing how each community has its own unique feel. Every time I go to Tampa it's on a whirlwind trip and there isn't much downtime. However, this last trip Ashley made sure we had a little time to relax and one morning she made arrangements with the Epicurean Hotel to take these adorable bikes on a ride around Hyde Park Village. Seriously, those baskets!

10 Tips for Surviving Disney World in the Summer

After a long winter and what seems like an even rainier and cooler spring, temperatures are finally starting to rise and summer break is nearing. If you're anything like our family, most of your vacation time takes place in the summer. While the summer crowds at Disney are surprisingly manageable, you'll also be in the parks during the hottest time of the year, and for those of us who are not Florid natives, the heat can be a bit shocking. Susan and I put our heads together and came up with a few tips to help make your time in Disney World as enjoyable as possible, even with 90+ degree temperatures and 100% humidity.

Seersucker Sass

Now that it's May, it's time to start looking towards summer trends and seersucker is definitely a classic summer wardrobe staple. There's a reason why seersucker is so popular, especially in summer formal wear and suiting:  The light, cotton fabric is cool and airy and the texture hides obnoxious wrinkles easily, making it perfect for any type of warm weather activity.

A RunDisney Runcation

Two weekends ago I traveled to Walt Disney World to participate in the Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend. Apologies in advance because unlike most races, this write up is for the whole event and all 3 races, so it is a rather long post. Unfortunately, last night I deleted ALL my photos when I accidentally formatted my SD card (you think they'd have some "are you sure you want to do this" button!) and I haven't been able to find the high resolution photos I took of characters during the races among the 15,000 files I had to restore and now need to sort through.
