Magical & Happiest Place...
Mr. C and I were Magically Happy to recently spend the day and evening at Disneyland. Yes, just the two of us "grown ups". Twenty years ago we celebrated our engagement of marriage right here at Club 33 in New Orleans square, Disneyland. Mickey Mouse even attended our dinner party. It was magical and I was so happy. As a child I never got to go to Disneyland even though we lived in Southern California. Unknown family reasons that a child who loves everything Mickey and Minnie cannot possibly understand. I have since made up for my lack of visits even though I am a big girl now. Fortunately Mr. C indulges me and joins me on my visits.
Disneyland is all decked out in Halloween pumpkins for a big celebration. I had never seen this before.
We also did not realize that young children dress up to attend and spend the day enjoying their favorite characters. This little girl really is living her dream.
Yes...I was thrilled to see Minnie and Mickey (no photo shared) greeting us as we entered the grounds.
It was a very hot day and Mr. C was very patient waiting in lines. We did ride on Small World.
Here is my very HAPPY Mr. C riding on the carousel. This actually surprised me when he suggested and did this.
Here are the butterfly girls marching/dancing in the nighttime parade.
Here I bid you adieu from my carousel horse that I rode. We had a wonderful day enjoying the Happiest Magical Place on Earth. Thank you Walt Disney and your incredible vision. Thank you Mr. C for making me very happy indeed.
Our closest huge wildfire named the King Fire out of Pollock Pines is still raging and has burned over 87,000 acres and 136 square miles of land. We are safe but choking on very thick smoke for days now. I cannot complain as I am so very thankful we are not in the fire. My prayers are still with all who are affected by loss, evacuation and/or fighting the fire. Very grave circumstances in our dry drought scorched land.
We are staying close to home and putting together our best plans...just in case. Being prepared is something that we always think of doing "sometime". "If not now...when" certainly applies to this also and not just creative endeavors or using the good stuff.
I spent today at my local Chamber. I truly enjoy helping with office tasks and meeting folks who are visiting. Maybe this week I will get creative in my studio or sewing room. What are you creating or doing? Do something that makes you happy. Creative Bliss...
P.S. Thank you so very much for your visits and comments. I so enjoy reading them.
