Sanibel Island summer vacation.

In June, a few short weeks before my engagement, 
we had our time share on Sanibel Island, Fl like we normally do. 
We stayed at a new place this year and it was really nice! 
We only live about 5-10 minutes from Sanibel
but it is a nice vacation to take since so many people 
come from all over to vacation here.
We love hanging by the beach or pool all day and then
going out for a fabulous dinner that night. 
We also cooked lots of meals and had lots of great drinks.
Also since it was so close to home my friends were able to come visit, like

Here are some photos I took that week:

 It's a beautiful beach..

 This was our Resort for the week- Sanibel Cottages.
Definitely recommend these and we are planning
on staying here again next year!

 These people fished everyday!

 So pretty! 

 [MS], Little Miss Southern Love, and [KP].
As you can see a pit stop for beer was needed
on the way home from dinner.
And I did get a tad bit of sun this day. Whoops! 

 Little Brother and Sister climbing in the Banyan tree.

 Oh, Family :)

 And here's everyone in front of the cool tree. We all got lots
of sun this day!

 My mom [MD] recreating her wedding hair.
Minus the salty waves they eloped in Hawaii and 
she wore a Plumeria in her hair!

 Seriously my child in the Guy Harvey shirt.

 Shelling during sunset is my favorite thing to do!
And of course doing it in Lilly makes it so much better :)

 The gorgeous view from our balcony!

 [KP] grilling chicken and corn with a Spiked Arnold Palmer in hand!

 Preppy Wife Preppy Life and I wearing our Lilly on the 
beach for National Wear Your Lilly Day!

 We also went to the Bubble Room for dinner one night.
If you are planning a vacation to Captiva you MUST
eat here. It is delicious and quite a fun dining experience.

Speaking of Sanibel Island and Captiva Island..
Stay tuned tomorrow for Bridal Talk Tuesday
where I'll reveal sneak peaks of
where [KP] and I are thinking of tying the knot!

Hope everyone's having a great Monday.

P.S. Ohhh- and the bachelorette! I totally called that it was JP!
Love him! Watching After the Final Rose now.

Sanibel Island is one of my favorite places to vacation! I love it there. I also think it has the prettiest shells of any beach I've ever been to.
