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 […]

EPCOT Food and Wine Festival Coming to a Close

The Food and Wine Festival is coming to a close this month, and I have enjoyed going.  The food is amazing as usual, and the only thing I didn’t care for this year was the cotton candy drink in the neon room.  The room itself was very interesting, but the drink was not my thing.  […]

Taking Care of Myself

This weekend was busy, but I still found some time to take care of myself.  I was able to sleep in Saturday and Sunday( 0730 but that’s good for me!), got to go to my happy place, and was able to get a treat for myself.  In spite of an otherwise busy weekend, I was still […]

Disney World Information

I tend to be the person that people come to when it comes to questions about Disney World, and things Disney.  I have a number of places that I got for information and someone asked me to share some here.  So as requested, here are some of my go to places for Disney information. I […]

Time for Some Self-Care

No matter what happens in your life, talking time to recharge your batteries is really important.  Self-care is a key piece in being able to stay happy for life.  With the responsibilities at work, and being a parent and a spouse, and a friend, I try to take some time for myself when I can, […]
