Visiting D. C. for Red Cross Tiffany Circle Event

Hi! I hope everyone is well. I have been meaning to get this blog post to you about my recent trip to Washington D.C. for the 2017 Red Cross Women’s Leadership Summit! Last month, Chris and I had the honor to travel to our nation’s capital to celebrate 10 years of the American Red Cross Tiffany Circle. In the last ten years, the Tiffany Circle has contributed nearly $100,000,000 in support of disaster relief and recovery, blood collection and distribution, ...


New Menu and Boat Show Round Up

Hi! We have had such an exciting past week with the debut of Chef Phil’s new dinner menu in Acquario and the Boat Show coinciding. Everyone is saying that this was the “Best Boat Show Ever” and I definitely concur! The weather was absolutely perfect all five days and the energy of the show and in our town has been over the top! Of course, there was every kind of watercraft that one could ever dream of on exhibit, as ...

Thanksgiving Activities at Lago Mar

Hi! I am so excited that the holidays are right around the corner! I just booked the Outdoor Movie on the Beach Playground for the night before Thanksgiving but haven’t quite decided which movie to show on the gigantic screen. I think I will have to defer to the Fourth Generation to help me with that decision! Also, we are looking forward to having the Photo Booth back at the resort. In the Spring our guests and members really enjoyed ...

Freshening Up at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone is getting back to normal after Hurricane Irma. We are doing well here at the resort. We have continued our project of installing new carpeting on all the floors of our South building and it is spectacular! We chose a carpet with a striated background, which compliments the artwork that lines the hallways. I really love the paintings as they feature flowers indigenous to South Florida and are the work of a local artist! Our new ...


Post-Irma Update

Hi! Wow…what a week we have had! We are very grateful that we were spared the worst of Irma’s wrath. We did experience strong winds but luckily never saw a storm surge of any significant amount. Unfortunately, the Keys and Miami were not so lucky. We are praying for our fellow Floridians to make a speedy recovery. We actually opened our resort last night at 5:00, and within just a few hours we booked almost 80 rooms of our neighbors, who ...

The Soda Shop

Hi! I am writing today about a part of the resort that is so dear to me - The Soda Shop.  The Soda Shop is truly one of the sweetest areas of Lago Mar. Upon entering one immediately feels a magical, whimsical sense as they see the huge "lit up” brightly colored umbrella standing over the gourmet cheeses, artisan meats, and Boar’s Head Hummus selections. After taking in that vignette, one might notice the exquisite, fun moldings placed over the ...


Summer’s End and Tennis Fun

Hi! I can’t believe that summer is over and the kids are back to school. I miss them so much. I want to apologize for being MIA but we have been traveling most of this month. I took the kids to San Diego for the National Hard Courts Tournament where Demi did really well and had many college coaches watching her. It was so exciting! We literally came home for 48 hours and then Chris and I took the kids ...


Summer Updates from Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone’s summer is going well! We are having a great time at the resort! The weather has been sunny and hot, so the best place to be has been in the ocean. The kids and I actually spent the night here last weekend because it was Dani’s 13th Birthday. The next morning, we woke up really early and went down to the beach. It was so inviting. We swam half way down to the jetties and then back. ...


Summer Fun at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone is having a great summer! We definitely are here at the resort. The weather has been great and the ocean absolutely wonderful. Every day, after the girls train for tennis, we all head down to the beach and enjoy the benefits of the salt water! Both of the girls have noticed that their skin has been really clear with all of this complimentary “salt therapy”. Since we have not yet taken our “summer vacation”, we have been ...
