A few things that are making me happy this week and that I’m grateful for:
I worked this week while I was in Orlando, but it felt great to get away even if it was just a 4-hour drive away. It was lovely spending the days and evenings with my family, seeing the kids having fun in the pool, and watching bad movies in the evenings over even worse Chinese food.
It was very hot, humid, stormed in the afternoon, and was really crowded in the evening, but it was fun spending the Fourth of July at the Magic Kingdom with my mom.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios
It was really crowded and I didn’t get to ride any of the rides, but I loved seeing the world of Harry Potter come to life. I drank butterbeer and pumpkin juice and bought myself a scarf. Can you guess from what house?
Driving a Fiat 500
What a fun car I got to rent for my week in Orlando. I love how easily it maneuvers in small spaces. It just fits everywhere. And everyone kept looking at this sleek, little red car.
La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil
It was a great show and I enjoyed it, but what makes me extra happy is having gone with my mom and knowing she really liked it.
