Real Estate Spotlight: Imagine Yourself Home at Villa Catalina 1

Good Morning, Good Morning.  I hope you all had a magnificent weekend and are finding ways to stay warm up there in the states as the Christmas Season gets into full swing!  It’s still a beautiful and balmy 82 degrees here on St. John, so, if you are thinking that you may be outgrowing those chilly winter temps a bit farther from the equator, maybe it’s time to start shopping around for a change in latitude.

Love City 101, Part 2- Beach Etiquette

Love City 101, Part 2- Beach Etiquette 3

Happy Fri-YAY everyone!  A few weeks ago I started a little series called Love City 101.  The goal of this series is to educate the new comers to St. John and give a little refresher to those of you who visit year after year in regards to island etiquette and ways for all of us to work together and take care of St. John and the people who live here.  The first post in this series covered some common greetings on island and some protocol to follow while you are having fun around town.  This second installment touches on ways to enhance your beach experience while also being courteous to the marine life and other happy beach goers that you are sharing your beach day with!

Giving Tuesday- A Showcase of St. John Non-Profit Organizations

Giving Tuesday- A Showcase of St. John Non-Profit Organizations 5

Happy Tuesday to you all!  Giving Tuesday that is 🙂  Over the past several weeks, I have been sharing with you A LOT of fundraisers and raffles, which are great ways to give back while also possibly getting something in return.  But, today, on a day of global generosity, I thought it might be neat to simply share with you a list of amazing, St. John organizations that do SO much for the Love City Community.  I have a bleeding heart for the organizations on St. John that do SO MUCH GOOD here in support of the community and the environment in this beautiful place.   These organizations run solely on generosity from their donors and dedicated volunteers.  So, in the spirit of giving, today and any other day that you’re feeling generous and a need to give back to the place that gives us all SO much, please reference this list of non-profit organizations on St. John to direct your tax deductible giving back to the place that has your heart 🙂

New Webcam Alert- Picture Yourself at Honeymoon Beach! 6

Good Morning All!  I hope that you all had an absolutely beautiful holiday weekend filled with friends, family, good eats and lots and lots of gratitude.  I, personally, had a last minute opportunity to be with my ENTIRE family in Portland, Oregon for the long holiday weekend.  It was absolutely glorious to gather with all of my people.  But, man oh man, it is COLD up there for this island girl!  Like a lot of you during this time of year, as the fall creeps out and winter seeps in, I found myself turning to images of white sand beaches and beautiful blue waters for little internal warm-up moments 🙂   And in my searches, I noticed a new St. John webcam!

Mastering the Art of St. John Grocery Shopping During a Holiday Week

Mastering the Art of St. John Grocery Shopping During a Holiday Week 10

Generally, on a busy week, the shelves in the grocery stores on St. John are looking pretty skimpy on Sundays and Mondays. That is because our small, but efficient, grocers receive the bulk of their weekly shipment towards the beginning of each week. And this week has been no exception, as the holiday crowds and local residents rushed the stores this weekend on the hunt for turkey, stuffing and other delicious comfort food fixins in preparation for their holiday feasts.

Giving Tuesday- Enter to Win a St. John Getaway 11

This week marks the commencement of the season of giving, beginning with the Thanksgiving holiday, that reminds us to be grateful for the good things in our lives. It’s a time of year to share our blessings with our communities and those who may be less fortunate. While Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become ingrained in our minds by the media as big parts of the holiday season, are you familiar with Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday- Enter to Win a St. John Getaway 12
The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is known as Giving Tuesday – a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Sometimes, giving back gets lost in the “limelight” of the holiday shopping rush. But this year, you can embark on a holiday “shopping” expedition while ALSO helping others!
