Just How Busy Do You Want To Be?

20171120_130256In our technological world today we lose sight of the simple things. Running around with cell phones in hand while hurrying to the next meeting, is how we miss the little things in life. We don’t see what is right in front of us.

Take some time, even if it’s only 5 minutes, just sit and breathe deep and you might be surprised at what you are missing out on.  Or, do a little yoga to destress at the end of the day. Turn the phones and computers off and talk to each other. What a concept!


Announcing Another Way I can help you!

With all the fun things to do here in the sunshine state, I decided to go back into the Real Estate field to help those who share my passion for – “Living Life To The Fullest” – find a home and enjoy the relaxing lifestyle!

I recently joined Keller Williams Realty, South Shore in Apollo Beach, Fl., to do just that!  What better way to share my enthusiasm for living in Florida than telling everyone I know and meet.

If you are ready to enjoy life, with no stress, and just have fun, call me or email and I will definitely help you find the best home for you!

Donation to a Worthy Cause

IMG_9358I had the pleasure of being with    Sue & Pete Shields, Owners of S&S Tropical Group Rentals, who made a generous donation to the Anna Maria Privateers. Their donation will help fund scholarships and kid’s organizations.

The Privateers really get in the ‘mood’ dressing in Privateer attire! The “ship” can been seen around the Island for various events. Pub Crawls are a blast!  This is a non-profit organization and the crew members go out of their way to make every event fun! You never know when you will see the “Skullywag  Ship” driving down the highway, but when you do – Wave!

Why, Ybor City, Florida?

There is So much to see and do in this historic town called Ybor City, Florida! This was my first visit and I plan to go back soon!  Take a stroll down 7th Street and you will see many diverse restaurants, eclectic retail stores and residential remodeled homes. You feel as though you are in Key West or New Orleans! This little city is definitely a ‘must see’ on your list of places to visit in Florida!

Tibby’s New Orleans Kitchen

Tibby’s is the most ‘fun’ place to enjoy New Orleans culture and food! Along SR60 in Brandon, Florida sits a unique, colorful New Orleans restaurant. From the time you enter you feel like you are actually in New Orleans! The food is great, service wonderful and the pictures and artifacts are straight from New Orleans. Some pieces are salvaged from the destruction by Katrina. These pictures don’t do the restaurant justice. You have to visit to appreciate the décor. Menu includes dishes like Muffaletta spring rolls, Alligator Street Tacos, Rita’s Lemon Chicken, and of course etouffe, shrimp creole with red beans and rice! Yum

Tibby’s is located at 1721 W Brandon Blvd., Brandon, Fl.  33511
