This week, I went to Disney World. Things could be worse.

Sometimes you wake up on Monday with... well... a case of the Mondays.
And sometimes you wake up on Monday and have breakfast with a princess.
I spent the last few days in Disney World, helping to plan the wedding of my friends/former roommates, Scott and Tevy. Excuse to go to Orlando in the middle of January? Don’t mind if I do!
Since I could only get two days off from work, it was a very short trip. Day one was park hopping through Epcot (which is truly a small world and, thus, terrifying), Hollywood Studios (where the New York backlot was deserted and, thus, terrifying), and Animal Kingdom (where I was the only person to audibly scream in fear at the Yeti on Expedition Everest). Despite all my parenthetical fears, it was a great time! Riding rides, watching Finding Nemo: The Musical (which was EXCELLENT, by the way), and enjoying the 80 degree weather was nothing short of amazing.
Day two was spent wedding planning! I was honored that Scott and Tevy asked me to officiate their wedding, and I’m so happy I was there to help plan things for their big day. Plus, who doesn’t want to get free samples of cake?
All in all, it was a delightful escape from the City. Wedding is in October... cannot wait!
