trip to disney

sorry i haven't written in a while.

i was knee-deep in vacation planning!

we went to disney for spring break this year.

my goodness, it was an experience.

between gut-wrenching rides, hour-long lines, and people wearing mouse ears, we really did enjoy our vacation.

will post more when i sort through all the pictures!!

until then, i will leave you with this picture of our favorite ride:

in case you don't recognize it or haven't had the thrill of riding it, its called splash mountain and it is crazy!

and no, thats not us on the boat......

more soon.......

explore the magic

i came across these images recently.

i have always been obsessed with disney. 

all things disney.

and now, all things vintage disney.

before there were cell phones, computers, facebook, twitter and blogs, the every family would send postcards when they were on vacation.

i miss those days.

these postcards were from walt disney world and i can remember like yesterday sending one like this to my mom when i went to visit relatives in california.

just brings back memories of a child's view of disneyworld.

such precious memories.

to see more, visit

they have great things to reminisce about!
