Smile:-) WP Photo Challenge

Today’s photo is a few years old. The memory of this trip always makes me smile. It was a special trip to one of my happy places.


“When there’s a smile in your heart, there’s no better time to start. Think of all the joy you’ll find, when you leave the world behind and bid your cares goodbye. You can fly.” — Peter Pan

WP Photo Challenge: What distrac…

Flipping through my photos over the months it is kind of obvious what distracts me…what calls me to take a photo.

Or perhaps it’s the flowers…

This week’s WordPress photo challenge is all about ….

Main Street WDW

oh umm.. things that distract you; that call you in like the scent of fresh-baked goods!

What about you: what is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”?

Grateful for a small gift.

20170322_153914I was enjoying a virtual visit to Walt Disney World via my friend’s tales on social media when I asked if she stopped by the Canada pavilion in EPCOT. I saw earlier this year that they were sharing this button with guests. I knew I’d be upset if I missed out on the button as a souvenir.

Fast forward a few days later … I received a mystery message saying “check your mailbox”.

😀 I was thrilled that she thought to share this with me. Two of my favourite things on one button. Canada and Disney ❤

This week I am grateful for an unexpected gift.

What are you grateful for?


“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.”
