SANTANA

I love spring time. Such a sense of renewal and starting fresh. Funny, I don’t get that feeling in January, when it might make the most sense with the start of a new year. For me, April reminds me of when my grandmothers would hang her freshly cleaned sheets out on the clothes line, “so they could soak up the fresh air.” All the expensive products in the world can’t duplicate what it felt like to crawl into those sheets. I don’t just do my spring cleaning, I love doing it. It’s sort of a way to air out the cob webs in my head. Patio, pool, pressure washing, yard then inside, out with the old, in with the new, and everything sparkly fresh. And at my house when the grill and the tiki bar are all cleaned up and ready to go, then spring has sprung.

Racings North Turn holds a fabulous Derby day and ladies, be sure to wear your hats. I am not to shy to say, you will see me bright and shiny on the first Saturday in May at the Daytona Poker Room and Kennel Club placing my bets.

If cooking at home isn’t in the cards for Easter this year, then take everyone in the family to one of the amazing brunches in the area such as Daytona Hilton at Doc Bales, or Kona Tiki Bar which to me is a locals best kept secret. Of course, all the Mexican Restaurants will be packed on Cinco de Mayo, but don’t forget about your favorite neighborhood spots like Merk’s Bar & Grill, Mark’s Sports Bar or Original First Turn who will be serving up some delicious margaritas and at low prices. And since I am a Louisville, Kentucky transplant, Derby Day parties mean a lot to me.

Until next month, get out and enjoy yourself! Live life to the fullest. Don’t forget about your Administrative Professional at your office this month on their special day, April 24, and take your daughter (or son) to work day, April 25.

For all you motorcycle or music lovers, you already know why Leesburg (just a short drive west,) graces our cover this month. Their bike week is full of amazing entertainment and one of the most hospitable law enforcement teams you will ever meet. If you have never been to this event do yourself a favor and make this the year. My only warning is to get your room now, they go fast. I personally always stay in Mount Dora, so I get the best of both worlds.
