Where I am today

If this doesn’t get me in the spirit nothing will. I am spending today at Epcot with Brett. We are having a staycation day since Disney is only an hour away from our house.  The above were all taken last year in December when I took my sister here for the day during her visit. I was traveling light so all of the above were taken with my Iphone. I’m sure the decorations look the same this year. I’ll let you know if it has changed any.  Instead of turkey and stuffing for our meal today, we are going to eat Italian food (or maybe French, or maybe German, or maybe even Japanese)! Or we could have a little of every county. It’s fun to snack around the countries at Epcot. I plan on coming home with a tummy ache from all the stuff I eat today. But isn’t that what you’re suppose to do on Thanksgiving?  Hope you have a nice one as well.

On a beautiful morning in mid-December after spending an hour walking around the Botanical Gardens in Largo, I headed over to Heritage Village next door. I had not been in over a year and wanted to see if they decorated the old houses for Christmas. Not too many decorations but since it’s free to walk around I couldn’t complain.  Heritage Village is a 21 acre living history museum. Walking around the trail, you can see 28 historic buildings dating back to the 19th century. Lots of things to see there.
