Hey everybody! I’m going to be taking a short break from the blog next week while my sister, niece and I are in Disney World!
Rather than schedule posts ahead of time, and then try to respond to comments from afar, I’m just going to go on a blog hiatus.
Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know that my sister and niece moved here to Minnesota from New Jersey just over two years ago. Prior to that I hadn’t lived in the same state as my sister since she was 20 and I was 18 (and had never lived close to my niece)! So for more than half of our lives, my sister and I lived far apart.
During that time rather than just visit each other in our respective home states, we always met at various destinations instead. Sometimes Mr. Q, my niece Kris and/or our mom would join us as well (Mom lives in Las Vegas).
We’ve been on so many fabulous trips together including a whirlwind trip across Europe from London to Rome. A second trip just to London. And a trip to Budapest with a cruise on the Danube River.
We’ve done plenty of trips closer to home too including a Mexico cruise for our mom’s 70th birthday.
And we’ve done a few trips to either Disney World or Disneyland. We’ve been going to the Disney parks since 1969!
Our last trip to Disney World was just before I started blogging, October of 2013.
We’ve been itching to go back to a Disney park so when my niece was asked to be a bridesmaid in a wedding that was taking place in Florida we decided this was our golden opportunity.
I thought now that we all lived in the same state we would be able to fly to our destination together. Ironically, no. We are all three on different flights. My niece leaves a day ahead of us and heads to Boca Raton for the wedding. My sister and I head to Orlando at the same time the next day, but she’s on the cheaper Sun Country fight while I’m using frequent flyer miles on Delta.
Oh well. We are pros at flying solo by now. We’re used to meeting up at our destination’s airport! We did it before cell phones and texting, so we can easily handle it now.
Have a great week you guys, and be sure to check back in another week. I’m planning a fun blog giveaway when I get back!
