I realized a few days into my Disney World vacation that I didn't post anything on my blog about leaving. Those of you that follow me on any of the other social media platforms I am a too-eager participant of would have figured it out rather easily, though. I'm back now, though. It was an amazing ten day trip, filled with rides, magic, all the food, a little bit of nausea, weeping all over the place out of sheer joy, fireworks, long hugs and more magic. Leaving Disney is always the worst, and it was extra difficult this year, because this year, in addition to just saying goodbye to Disney World itself, I had to say goodbye to someone there that I didn't want to say goodbye to. I'm still sleepy and have an ache in my chest and am trying to settle back down into this every day life at home, and I figured that sharing some photos from the trip may help lift my spirits (or make me weep uncontrollably all over the place, I haven't figured out which yet). I figured I'd break up the disney posts into three: today's will be general pictures, the next will be outfit photos I took throughout the trip (when I remembered to take them) and the last will be me with all of the millions of characters I met and took photos with while I was there. Thank you Disney for making magic feel real.
