Don’t be in a hurry!

So many times I hear people talking about being in a hurry.  I was lucky enough to spend this weekend at Disney.  I got to watch the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom and go for a walk at the Animal Kingdom this morning, and unfortunately, I was there in the rain.  Oddly enough I got […]

EPCOT Adventure

I love going to Disney, and sometimes I notice things I haven’t before.  As many times as I have been there, there is still so much that I haven’t seen or done, so that’s not a surprise, when I think about it.  Recently, I found new adventures at the Animal Kingdom that I hadn’t done […]

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Posted on April 22, 2018 by in Disney

I have been going to Disney World now for many years.  Even prior to living in Florida, I was lucky enough to visit once a year, sometimes more, and I enjoyed every visit.  My first visit was around 1978, and my family stayed at the campground.  My next visit was in 1993, and Disney Studios […]

EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival- Weekend 2

I am often in awe of people who have special gifts and can make gardens look amazing, and cook such wonderful creations that taste so scrumptious.  I enjoy cooking and baking, but I am no chef, or gourmet for that matter.  Baking is my favorite, but if I baked half as much as I would […]

EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival

Spring is around the corner, and the garden festival at EPCOT is finally in full bloom.  The festival opened on February 28th, and this first weekend of the festival was bustling with people and topiaries.  I love all the flowers and gardens, and I especially like that I can enjoy it, but I don’t have […]

A Word of Hope and Peace

I was lucky enough to be at EPCOT last night, for Illuminations.  I love that show.  The fireworks are great, but the message is of peace and the world working together on the planet we call home.  I have probably seen that show about 50 times by now, but it touches me every time I […]

Disney Dreaming

No happy place for me this weekend, but that won’t stop me from dreaming of my next trip.  I told my family that I would rather be playing Candy Crush, sitting in a Disney park, than sitting on my couch at home.  I stand behind that, so when I can’t be there, I enjoy looking […]

There Should Be Cake

So many things are hard, as an adult.  Paying bills, working full time, caring for kids and family members all tax our energy and stamina to keep going.  We lose sleep, have trouble concentrating, forget where we put things, and still we manage to make dinner, help with homework, and keep everyone in clean laundry.  […]

My Happy Place

Well, I was lucky enough to visit my happy place this weekend, and Christmas is over.  The ginger bread is gone, and the decorations are coming down.  The Magic Kingdom still looks “holidayish”, but the resorts are back to normal.  It’s always a pleasure to be in my happy place, but I will say that […]

A Season of Joy

I have to admit, I so love the holidays.  As we prepare for Thanksgiving, the holiday season is coming to life, and I enjoy the decorations.  They are going up all over, including our neighborhood, other neighborhoods, and the theme parks in Florida are looking beautiful.  I must say that we don’t decorate like we […]
