A Formal Farewell

I honestly have nothing but {mostly} good things to say about living here in the state that looks like a mitten. Yes, I too describe locations in Michigan by holding up my hand and pointing. It's a thing here, guys, don't worry. Our first few months here in the summer were spent enjoying much cooler temperatures then we were used to and exploring all things outdoors. We went to the Zoo, Greenfield Village & a local orchard for only the freshest of fruits and veggies. I also made sure to make it to the lake at least once a week and dip my toes in the ice cold water. This winter has been a long one. It has finally started to warm up, and the grass is getting greener & greener with each new day. Morning rain is even help bring the trees to life, and all the geese are flying back up North. Before we know it, we will pack up and head West to where our hearts feel at home. I have a feeling all of our memories of this place will be well kept in our minds, and especially all of our friends. The saying is true, Mid-Westerners are seriously some of the friendliest people around.

Five Things / Disney Edition /

/ resort details /
Our week at Disney World was too fun & I just couldn't share five photos. So, here are some extras for you all to enjoy. We went to all 4 parks {Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot & Animal Kingdom}. All of the parks are unique in their own way but I think the new Fantastyland won me over. Take me back to the sun, endless pomegranate lemonade, and all things magical!

Disney World in Video

A fun way to pull our Disney memories together was through filming. Here are a few of our favorite parts about the trip ranging from boat rides around the property to 3 am ice cream cones at the Main Street parlor.

Home Again, Home Again

We both made it home safe & sound from our trips and decided that the upcoming General Conference weekend was the perfect way to spend a few days together after being apart. We had yummy breakfasts, read, walked along the lake & laughed at the tiny baby geese that scurried around on the lawn outside our house. It was a wonderful reminder of how much fun it is to have a full weekend without really having to do anything.
