Sanibel Kids Living The Good Life

Each Mother’s Day, I take a moment to count my blessings. With four kids and my husband, Jim, I quickly fill an entire handful of blessings to count!

Raising our kids on Sanibel Island has been another HUGE blessing as a mother. There’s so much to say about the Sanibel community, the Sanibel School, Sanibel Sea School, BIG ARTS, Sanibel Rec Center, and the numerous other pillars of our community that have shaped our kid’s childhood experiences. Really, there are too many to name.

Instead of rambling on about how great of a place Sanibel is to raise kids… I’ll show you! I love these photos of my kids enjoying island life to the fullest, and I think they’ll resonate with you too!


Of course, these are just a handful I chose on a whim. There are so many other great memories we’ve created in our decade of living on Sanibel.

I’d be happy to chat with you anytime about family life and what its like raising kids on Sanibel. While I’m biased with my love for the island, I’m also upfront about the challenges that come from raising kids on an island as well. As always, don’t hesitate to reach out, 239-472-1950.
