Staycation at Four Seasons Resort Orlando

Sometimes you just need a change of scenery, relaxation and a staycation nearby. Last month we stayed at a local resort that has been on our bucket list for a while. It checked all of our boxes and some we never knew we had been missing out on. If you are looking for a trip away, or visiting Central Florida to visit any of the Walt Disney World Parks, I highly recommend staying at the Four Seasons Orlando. I'm sharing why its a must and all of the safety that has been put into place to keep all guests safe. 

Fall is in the air, festive slippers and a tasty snack for little cubs.

The last day of July, must mean Fall is on its way, who agrees? Summer, has felt like a never ending season that started in March. I typically love the Summer and don't want to see it go, but this year, the year of 2020, I am ready for a change and something to give me the warm and fuzzies. Fall, is a time for pumpkin spice lattes, sweater weather (even if it's 90 degrees outside in Florida), feeling cozy and enjoying all the festivals this time of year brings. It might be a bit different in the outside world we once knew, but one thing that remains is that feeling you get while wearing your comfy lounge wear paired with the coziest slippers for you and your little cubs. 

Bibbidi Bobbidi.. Disney opens this week.

Can you believe that... Walt Disney World is finally reopening it's gates this week? As an annual pass holder we frequented to the parks at least once a week prior to the pandemic. As much as I would love to go to the reopening, in my heart I feel it is best for us to sit back for a while as they work out all the new restrictions and new normal. So to celebrate I put together some magic at home for the girls and you can too.

A festive treat brings together all you need to celebrate a holiday. Can you recall a favorite snack/treat or dessert that you loved during childhood? The one you remember meant it was Summer and time spent outdoors under the sun making lots of memories. That is how I feel about rice krispee treats, the gooey marshmallow, crunch and can't have just one feeling. My mom would make them all the time, extra marshmallowy and for any special occasion, just change the shape and sprinkles and it could be made for any celebration or holiday. It's the super easy recipe for you and your children to make together, but be prepared for sticky fingers.

Last Day of School 2019-2020

The phrase "last day of school," is usually filled with much excitement for the Summer and to end another school year. Today, it feels completely different. I think it has been harder on me now, than the girls, since we have shielded them from what is truly our new reality. Will we remember this as the end of school year due to a worldwide pandemic or will we choose to label it as the year ended with distance learning at home?

A magical picnic to spark memories

The girls have been yearning for a magical adventure to Disney, it was our weekly tradition. They would be dismissed from school at noon, and we would head over to one of the nearby Walt Disney World Parks. It was our thing and has been since stripped away for the last couple of months.
Fast forward to today, I setup the girls Step2 3 piece farmhouse table and bench set for a Disney treat picnic in our backyard.
