Our Weekend Getaway to Northern California
Last week I posted about my time at the Walt Disney Family Museum, which was the whole point of this trip, but while we were going up there with our friends Lauren and Kellen, we made the most of it with stops for dinner with friends, touristing around the city, and getting to attend our friend's newly launched church! First stop: Bakersfield! Our friend Kathleen moved there 2 years ago and this was my first visit to her new hometown! It was definitely an overdue visit. Aren't these 2 too cute! Plus I got to see the Little Free Library in person that I had posted about a few months ago (thanks to Kathleen's blog for the tip)! And of course when we had dinner at Eureka Burger, I just had to get the burger with the fried egg. Because it's the best. Oh and hot sauce, and bacon. There was no question there. Okay and just one more food photo
The Walt Disney Family Museum and the World of Mary Blair Exhibit Trip Report
This past weekend I got to experience the Walt Disney Family Museum—finally! We made a trip up to San Francisco, just to make it in time to experience the Mary Blair exhibit at the museum. With only 2 hours in total to spend there, we started with Mary Blair as the thought was, the Walt Disney Family Museum will always be there and we can always come back. So that's how I ended up spending a whole hour in Mary Blair world and had to rush through the Walt Disney Family Museum at lightning speed. Yes, rush, as there are 11 galleries to experience and each one is pretty big and unique! I really didn't get to read much but just get the overall impression of each gallery and move on
A Year Spent at the Happiest Place on Earth / 2013-2014
Today my Disneyland pass expires. After having an annual pass to the Happiest Place on Earth since Christmas of 2004, I am so heartbroken to not just be able to head down there whenever I want. Looking back over the years, I feel so blessed and am so thankful for all the little moments and celebrating all the major milestones. It's the place I fell in love, it's where friendships were strenghtened, its the place where my little nieces and nephews saw a whole new world with a sparkle in their eyes. And oh my gosh, I miss it already. On the other hand, Disneyland to me has always been a creative and artistic masterpiece. Every single nook and cranny has been thoughtfully executed down to the smallest detail. It has been crafted with love and a passion for the ideals of one man, Walt Disney. Walking down Main Street, I am just filled with so much creative juice that my heart just feels full and my mind is racing with ideas. And while I am taking a break from having a pass for awhile
