Christmas at Disney World

As you all know, Disney World is my favorite place, but around the holidays, I love it even more.  After putting up my Holiday decorations, I have even more respect for the people who decorate the parks and resorts at Disney.  I am moving boxes, and putting up trees, but they are moving tons (quite […]

Disney World Under Construction

I made it “home” this past weekend, to see my happy place once again.  The Food and Wine Festival is still going strong, and I attended Sister Hazel at the American Pavilion, after they stepped in for Smashed Mouth due to illness.  The weather was very nice initially, but got warmer, so yes it’s still […]

2018 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival

It’s that time of year again.  The EPCOT Food and Wine Festival is on, and as tasty as ever.  There are new additions, and some festival favorites, and something for everyone.  This weekend was my first weekend, but it has been in full swing for a couple weeks already.  There is so much to experience, […]

Going On Vacation

It’s summer and people seem to be thinking about vacations.  The kids are out of school and the television is filled with destinations and options to consider if you plan to get away from home.  From a weekend vacation to a week at a place like Disney, there are many options if you like to […]

A Disney Day

Every time I make it to Disney World I find new things, even this weekend, and other things I can appreciate.  I lost count of the number of times I have been lucky enough to visit, but there always seems to be something new and something traditional.  From new treats, to new shows, to new […]

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.  […]
