Make it a goal. That's what those articles say that I read when someone wants to accomplish something. Anything. No matter big or small. Make it a goal. So that's what I'm going to do. 1 time a week I'm going to make it my business to slow down and take in the scenery I'm in, if it's not raining, shoot it, and then blog about it. Three things get accomplished with this goal.
1. I actually hold up my end of my bargain.
2. I get practice taking pictures. You only get better by doing. Duh!
3. I practice verbalizing my thoughts on paper. That's a great way to talk. (See what I did there.)
So me and the wife took the time during the 2011 Thanksgiving holidays to conquer the Disney Theme Parks. Talk about having legs that felt like jello but memories that will last a lifetime. You can see from the pictures that we were exasperated from all the fun. Everyone asked where'd you go? We did them all: Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom, and Epcot. I was able to take pictures of the castle during the light show at night. I wouldn't have wanted to do the adventure with anyone else except my queen. We charted the course together and ran it. Now I can be excited and relive it all over again through my kids eyes when they finally get here. The only memories that I had prior to this trip were from pictures my parents had from 1985. At least that's what they say in the albums. My Dad was the planner in all of it. Those were some good times. Now that I've gone for myself, as a grownup, I have memorabilia to remind me. Coffee with Mickey means a whole lot more. :-)
