Disney Vacation

Almost two months ago, Tim and I were in Disney World for vacation with his family. I can't believe it is taking me this long to share these photos. I think it was culling them to find the best ones that turned me off from putting this together. But I'm so thrilled that I am looking back on this! Our trip to Disney was the first actual vacation that Tim and I have taken (with a hotel room and not with a group of high school children we were teaching). Though I was worried about traveling with his two young nephews, it ended up being a great trip and left me wondering when Tim and I would be able to return to Disney again (but maybe just the two of us.)

Disney World is really a fabulous place. Since Tim and I don't have children and don't really care to be in places that have tons of children, I was a little worried that everything would be so "kid friendly" that I would lose my mind. That wasn't the case at all. There is so much to do, so many different places to eat, and so much...space...that you can be around as many—or in our case, as few—children as you want. We had some lovely family time, but also a whole lot of us time, which was great.

Along with all the normal Disney World things, we also rented a car to journey to Winter Park, FL, where Tim went to college and lived during that time. We got to see his campus, old apartment, walk around Winter Park, had dinner with one of his college friends, and stop into Rifle Paper Co.'s flagship store. I geeked out quite a bit, but I think I handled myself pretty well. (Disclaimer: that's a complete lie. I don't think I was very composed. I was giddy...)

All in all, a great trip. And I think I've got the travel bug for 2014. 

Tim's 26th Birthday

So, yesterday was Tim's birthday! He played a gig with the band he's in. There was surprise cupcakes after. And a late dinner with pumpkin beer. Tonight I'm making a nice dinner of things he enjoys and Saturday we are celebrating at some local bars with a group of friends. Just thought I'd give him a little shout out to the swellest guy around. :) 

Hope you have some lovely weekend plan! 

It's Really Been Five Years?!

It's pretty hard to believe that it's been five years. It definitely feels like a long time, but FIVE years? Crazy.

During those five years, we have....

Moved out. Moved back home. Moved in together. Graduated college. Ate a lot of Mexican food. Got a job. Got another job. And another job. And probably another job. And landed full-time jobs. Travelled to Boston. Cried. Laughed. Smiled. Dealt with loss. Played music. Danced together. Built a home. Saw movies together. Picked pumpkins. Raised two fur-children. Got our acts together. Traveled abroad. Built a coffee table. Changed our styles. Ate cupcakes. Fought. Wrote notes. Sent angry texts. Became TV obsessed. Discussed life goals. Said thousands of goodnights. Rode bikes. Ate fondue. Celebrated our first Christmas in our new home. 


Here's to five years together, and here's to many, many more.
