hi!  we’re back home in the rainy cold weather of chicagoland…it was sad to leave the land of mickey and donald but i’m certain we’ll be back there in the next few years (we were stupid smart and got a 10 visit, no time frame pass last time we went to the magic kingdom 2 years ago).  this time, interestingly enough, things were not really about the princesses (sad actually) but more about tomorrowland and haunted mansion and the pirates of the caribbean (which was my favorite because not only was it really cool it was also really funny).  i have never ever seen cinderella’s castle so BRILLIANTLY and beautifully lit, it was truly magical.  and altho i do mock the disney lovers of this world from time to time (you know who you are you winnie the pooh sweatshirt wearing 44 year old moms!) i really did feel the magic.  dare to dream and the overall message that disney sends is warm, wonderful and truly inspiring if you take the time to listen.

so that’s my blog post for today.  here’s a couple of images taken with my point & shoot.  i like being able to just point & shoot but at the same time i missed the versatility of knowing that i control the camera (and not the other way around).  but let’s just say not lugging about 10 lbs of camera around my neck was truly a vacation indeed!

cinderella’s castle

the show

the gallows

it’s a small world afterall…


thanks for stopping in!  see you real soon! 😉

xoxo, Mare

    Oh Mare!! I wish I’d have known you were coming to Florida. You were only 90 minutes from me! 🙁 I would have loved to have met up with you for some chitchat! Looks like you had a marvelous time though. Your p&s shot of the castle is AMAZING! xoxo, Stacey
