|Maddie meeting Snow White a few years ago|
When I was little the "happiest place" on earth was Disneyland.
The characters, the rides, the perfect beds of flowers, the food, the princesses, all the places for imagination to soar - a little girl's dream.
I guess it is quite cliche... but so true.
I live in southern California and now my family has annual passes to Disneyland, so we visit quite often.
My kids - they LOVE it! What child wouldn't?
Funny how things change as you get older.
Don't get me wrong - I still love a day at Disneyland. I adore the look of excitement on my kiddie's faces, spending time with them,
& riding a roller coaster or two....
BUT, now - THIS is my happy place.
No coasters in sight. :)
Yes. It is true.
I love the bookstore.
Barnes & Noble especially.
They brew Starbucks. :)
I could spend hours pouring over magazines like Somerset Life or Martha Stewart Living. So many inspiring ideas, pictures, techniques, and articles.
It is so fun to see artists that I read (blogs) in the magazines too!
There is just so much eye candy!!
Well, and lucky me - my Hubby loves the bookstore too.
(Seriously, I lucked out. He doesn't think it is boring!
We are just two little peas in a pod.)
He grabs his cup of coffee and sits there with me, reading his own stack of books. The funny thing is on many occasions our "date nights" include relaxing at Barnes or Borders after a sweet dinner.
Wow, have times changed right!? :)
I think tonight we may be off to the "happiest place."
Nana and Papa have the kids...and Hubby & I are going out
for a "wild" night....at the bookstore. :)
Where is your "happy place"?
