My grandparents have owned a condo right on the beach on Sanibel Island, Florida for over 30 years now. For as long as I can remember, it has been a family gathering place where some of the best memories were made. From gigantic slices of cake at the Bubble Room, to back-breaking sand forts built by the best dad in the world, to my first steps as a baby out on their patio, Sanibel Island holds more treasures than just its gorgeous shells. Sanibel has and always will be my favorite beach, and I can't wait to show my own children someday all the beautiful discoveries it holds.
