This vacation was a moment that had been in the making for a year…and hoped for much longer than that.  “A dream is a wish your heart makes,” indeed. We started with four days in Captiva, FL for our annual beach fix, and then headed to Orlando to dip our toes into the Disney waters for the first time with kids. My expectations for this very special trip soared higher than Cinderella’s castle. And, you guys…it didn’t disappoint. Our time in Captiva couldn’t have been better. From the gorgeous weather, to the sun, surf, sand, and abundance of smiles…it was perfection. My two little beach bums filled my heart with joy as their excitement at being in a place I love more than anything once again abounded. Then, we were off to Disney to hang at the Magic Kingdom for two days. We met Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto, Pooh, Tigger, Chip and Dale, and the look on Eloise and Mae’s faces alone was worth the price of admission. There were the rides and scenes Mike and I remembered loving as kids, as well as a lot of new treats (Dole Whip! The hype is REAL!). Sharing this special moment with my parents, who had taken me and my sister to Disney as kids, was priceless. I am so thankful. My heart is so full. MAGIC.
