Pinellas Park is such a cute little city in the heart of Pinellas County, and we are often delighted by the events they put on in the local England Brothers Park.

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and as we near the end of November, with only one month left in 2023, I am overtaken by emotion when I fully focus on what I am thankful for. Despite all the hard times this year, it has been a substantial year of growth, life lessons, and memories – both good and bad. We actively choose every single day to focus on the good and keep going. I am grateful and excited to say we have reached our 70th blog post today and can’t wait to see what next year will bring for us.

Our first ever Magic moment or “pixie dust” was back in December of 2021 when we decided to book a night in Disney and have a little escape before the holiday. Mark booked one night at Art of Animation and we just chose the cheapest option available. When we arrived to check in they had upgraded us to a Lion King Family Suite at no charge! It’s like they definitely knew their clientele, right?!?
RunDisney Wine and Dine Race Weekend 2023 has officially come and gone but we are still reeling with excitement and pride here at Mira Manor.

#ad It’s October and that means it is one of our favorite months! This year, for the first time ever, we decided to create our very own Halloween Tree inspired by our collection of “spooky” ornaments that just weren’t fitting in on our Christmas tree anymore.
