When you wish upon a star...

Lately I have been having a really hard time just feeling unmotivated and sad. Things have been slowing down in life a bit and as things get spirit gets louder. The things that I have genuinely gone through over the past 28 years of life have slowly been making their way around and bringing me back in the quiet. This week I took a bold step on my part and took the week off of school. It worked out better than I imagined and I had the support of my professors and husband in that endeavor. I chose to truly take a step to take care of myself. There have been times in the past where I took the days off but I would do homework, catch up on errands, clean, work, etc.... Not this time! I did what I said I would do. I spend the entire day yesterday with my husband. We had a glorious time. We smiled, we laughed, we bonded emotionally, bonded physically, sparked up some passion, and rode pirates of the caribbean. That's right, we spent 9 hours in Disneyland.

Anthony and I have a special relationship with two locations so far. One is Las Vegas as we have had numerous weekends together there and our most recent weekend involved our wedding day. The other location is the Magic Kingdom, the happiest place on Earth, Disneyland! We love everything about Disneyland. We love watching kids that are so excited with all that is around them. We love watching married people holding hands and sitting in Small World boats together kissing. We love mickey ears, mickey shaped balloons, lanyards and pin collections, and Anthony loves their $6.00 corndogs right off of Mainstreet.

The Magic Kingdom really is that to us..magic. It made the day special, relaxing, peaceful, not stressful, depressing, or sad. I am truly at home behind those gates and turnstiles. I am in a place where nothing can reach me or sadden me. The world is somewhat forgotten while I am in there in my disney gear, holding a bottled water that cost more than a gallon of gas but the perma smile on my face makes it all worth it. I love Disney!!!!

I MISS Disney! We used to go every Sunday... Church, Lunch, Disneyland. *sigh* I'm glad you and your hubby got some bonding time. Frank and I are hoping to take a trip to Vegas when he gets home... kidless!
