Ahh, I have so many....I will write about two of them.
October 2007 - Seeing the Magic Kingdom Cinderella Castle for the first time. Yes, I burst into tears the moment I saw it. I never dreamed that I would get to go to Disney World. It was an awe moment for me. Even thinking about it now, I get teary eyed. We stayed at the Polynesian for 8 days and Magic Kingdom was one monorail stop over. I went there every day while my husband and Elexis swam at the hotel pool. Every day I would go to Main Street USA and just sit and admire that castle and soak it in. I cried the day we left. I didn't want to leave. I visited the castle one last time before we had to board our shuttle. When we went back again in 2011, I cried again the first time I saw it...again. I was so happy to be "home".
July 2007 - NYC - Beauty and the Beast
For our 10 year anniversary, hubby surprised me with a trip to NYC. It had always been at the very tip top of my bucket list to see Beauty and the Beast on Broadway. He gave me a card on July 1st that had Beauty and the Beast tickets in it. There was also the traveling show playing in Tulsa around that same time. I thought the tickets were for the Tulsa show. He told me to look at the tickets closer. When I saw that they said NYC, I burst out crying and jumped in his arms and hugged him tightly. He was making my dream come true (I am crying just thinking about the overwhelming joy I had experienced). Even better for me, the BatB show was closing at the end of the month. The show was amazing! The costumes were fantabulous. I cried when I walked into the theatre and I cried during the finale. I am so very happy that I got to experience my dream. We went to NYC the following year and I got to fulfill bucket list #2 item and see Grease. It was excellent, but it will never beat Beauty and the Beast. ANYTIME I can find Beauty and the Beast performed, I will go watch it. Adults, kids, dogs...whatever I will go watch it. Now I just need to go back to NYC and see Lion King and I will be complete on my Broadway Bucket List.
So both of my vacation memories revolve around Disney. And, if you haven't noticed I cry very easily. My husband says I am sensitive, I say I have a big heart full of love and it spills over a lot...lol.
Photo Day 28: Old
Here is a picture of my old elementary school. Besides the trashcans now being cemented into the ground, the school has not changed. It has always been 4 doors down from my grandma's. My walk to school was very short. I remember staring out of those windows and daydreaming a lot. I would love to visit the inside of the school one of these days. I love the distinctive smell of elementary school.
