So Many Sensational Memories in South West Florida #SensationalMemories

From the moment we land in Florida each year I take in every sight and smell. I pretty much go running out of the airport to find myself a palm tree and take a deep long breath of the Florida air. I love the way the salt just lingers all in the air and you know you’re near the ocean. I love SW Florida and often tell my husband when we’re old and retired I want to be on the islands of Captiva and Sanibel. I could spend the end of every night down on a picnic table at the Mucky Duck.

We’ve been going down regularly now for the past five years and it’s an area I’ve come to love in so many ways. The beaches are post card beautiful and I don’t think I’ve ever gone there and not seen a dolphin! My kids love all the shells and the beach front restaurants with bands always playing. Every now and then when I get a good whiff of coconut or just that ocean salty smell my wind can just wonder to some great sensational memory my family had there.

For the first time, Arm & Hammer Laundry has launched a collection with scents inspired by nature in partnership with the National Park Foundation! The 3 vibrant options are armed with Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to help power out dirt and odors. The Purifying Waters is first on my list to try! Can you imagine the amazing smell of diving into the crisp waters of Alaska must be like?

Memories and vivid emotions can be triggered in an instant by a simple scent. Submit a short paragraph (and a photo if available!) describing your most sensational scent-related travel memory. Perhaps it’s the smell of the sea air that brings you back to a fun-filled beach vacation or the smell of marshmallows roasting on a fire from that adventured-packed camping trip.

Do you have a scent that triggers great vacation memories for you and your family? If so then you need to head over to Scholastic and enter their Sensational Memories Contest by submitting your story and photo (if possible) describing a favorite memory of traveling that can be remembered from a simple scent.

The winner will receive a family vacation to Yosemite National Park with an expert-curated travel itinerary! How amazing is that? I’ve had friends that have been and they come back with the most beautiful photos! Imagine the memories you could make with your family if you won!

Does your family travel often or looking to travel soon?
