Yes I am back from my semi-unintentional hiatus from blogging. Totally unintentional the week before last but semi-intentional last week.
So starting Thursday (the 14th) celebrations began for my 25th birthday! I celebrated with my friends/family here in Orlando by having a delightful afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian's Garden View Tea Room. This is my all time favorite thing to do at Disney World. If I could have afternoon tea every single afternoon, I totally would.
After tea that day we went and spent the rest of the afternoon strolling around Epcot for the Flower and Garden Festival. Where are decided to have a mini photo shoot in between Italy and America in the World Showcase.
(Suzanne and I found out that the lighting on the promenade between those two countries between 4 and about 6:30 is ideal for some amazing photos!)
Then the best thing that could have ever happened, HAPPENED!
5 of 6 best friends were reunited! These four ladies are some of my all time favorite people in this entire world. I cannot imagine my life without them in it. And I am SO glad we all got to come together again! And for my birthday too! :)
Following that amazing day, I finished up a few days of work and then began my very first PAID VACATION!
My first official day of vacation I was still here in Florida and it was my actual birthday, on Monday the 18th. I'm now in my mid-20s and am a quarter of century old. Weird. (I have a full post in the works on my true feelings on being 25).
My actual birthday was spent at the Animal Kingdom with Suzanne were we took more pictures (obviously), had a delightful lunch, and then I spent the night with Jordan because she agreed to take me to the airport at 4:30 in the morning. Now that is a true friend!
Tuesday I found myself back in the great state of TEXAS!
Where I enjoyed:
-family (my grandmother and aunt even drove into town to see me)
-going to dinner and a movie with my best friend from home.
-morning coffee with my parents
-family movie night
-shopping with my mama
-an chocolate with mint chocolate chip ice cream cake
Sadly I did not take enough (and by enough I mean hardly any) pictures of my time in Texas. Which I'm regretting. But I did snap a couple of Instagram pictures which you can see by following me here.
I have to say, vacations are allows great but they are even better when you're getting paid to relax!
But can you see now why my blogging hasn't quite been up to snuff the last two weeks?! Life is finally back to normal though and my thus my blogging will be back to normal!
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go do what normal 25 year olds do and watch Sofia the First and color, while I drink my morning coffee.
Till tomorrow! :)
