lately i have been obsessing over Disney. and by “lately” i mean my entire life. i have always been captured by the wonder and drawn into the imagination. my heart flutters during Disney movies and is overcome with emotion when i go to the parks.
Disney is so quality.
so precious.
so life giving. 
before you start to wonder if i am a little too old for all this “children’s play,” i’ll share a little something for you:

“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” -Matthew 18:3
yes, i have the heart of a child at times but i would NEVER give that up – i enjoy wonder too much.
my favorite Disney princess ever is Belle. sometimes i pretend i am her: i love to read, i married a handsome beast, i am kind & passionate…. ta da. Belle. when i started this post (just a couple sentences ago) i told you that i had recently been obsessing more than normal. this is because they just built a new fantasyland at Disney world in addition to the classic one! i am freaking out. for reals.
bruce & i have decided that our change jar will be going towards a Florida adventure. we’ll hit up Harry Potter world again and run like children all over the Disney Parks. it sounds 100% magical!
until then i’ll just share with you all the pictures of my latest Disney adventure that apparently i have not done yet (i have no idea how i held off sharing my excitement with all you!!). i act like i never get the chance to go or anything but i was just running around Disneyland like a 5 year old with my husband and family over Christmas break.
enjoy the magic:












a dream is a wish your heart makes…

  • i love that you used scripture to make your obsessive love of disney okay 😉 i like it. and i agree. i won't ever quit having the heart of a child either.

  • Aww it looks fun! That'll be great to go again.
    As long as you can take all the little monsters running around in stride, I think Disney can still be fun for adults!! I like it. I like Universal (harry potter of course!) better because you can drink and it's an older crowd, but both are fun!

  • Yes! Another obsessive Disney lover!! I'm that girl who still loves Disney princesses and who still wishes she could wear a big yellow dress like Belle…since Belle's my favorite, too. 🙂 Love this post! I've actually never been to either Disney's (gasp!) so I loved seeing all these pictures! Disney is definitely on my bucket list! 🙂

  • Belle is my favorite too! I love Disney land and Disney world. I am so jealous that you re going to be going! My husband has never been. Crazy! I know. But I finally got him convince that we should go as a graduation gift for when he finished school. Until then I am just going to have to live through other people's trips 🙂

  • This is just TOO CUTE. I love the child-like abandon in your style and tone. You're brilliant, keep it up!

  • Bonjour! Bonjour! Bonjour bonjour bonjour! I also loveeee Disney!! So magical!! I love Belle too because she's intelligent and loves to read, like me! Never too old for Disney. 🙂

  • PS: Saw this today… sort of funny but I'm more impressed by his voice! Thought you'd enjoy. 🙂

  • How did I miss this post?!

    I am moving back to FL NEXT MONTH! So, when you and Bruce make it over, I may or may not drive up to Orlando to see you.

    That cool? Hope so, because I'm coming either way 🙂

  • it seems like everyone is heading to disneyland! makes me want to ditch school and head down there! love the photos!! looks like you guys had such a great time 🙂
