Reality...........

Two days ago I was rubbing elbows with the famous Snow White and Mickey Mouse. Snow is really quite stunning in person to see. :-)



I watched Mickey and Minnie taking their wedding vows. Well, not really.............


I sat in this beautiful park in Winter Park, Florida...............

I soaked up the bright sunshine of the 80 degree weather...............

I ate pasta at an outdoor cafe'.......................................
I ordered room service one morning while my sweetie was at his meeting..........................


But today.................

This is my reality. The snow has been coming down all night here in Cincinnati, this top photo is my pool area. There will be no swimming today and the bottom photo is my neighbor's back yard. They are talking about a snow and ice mix later on in the afternoon, so I am tucked safely in my home watching the snow fall and I will brave the cold and snow later on to take a few photos outside and make sure my bird friends have some food but in my mind I am still sitting in that park in Winter Park, Fla. with my sweetie soaking up the sun.
Thanks for everyone's sweet comments on my photos for Brenda's Photo Challenge. Donna from Cottage Days and Journeys has picked a new theme and date and the theme is textures and patterns and the date is February 7th. I'll be around to visit everyone soon and see their photos for the challenge but right now I think I am just going to pretend I am still in Florida and the sun is shining so bright and warm. I'll post some more photos of Winter Park later this week, it really is a cute town! Have a great day!

Don't you just wish you were back in Florida. Me too! In fact I ordered the Disney Vacation Video today. Don't know if we'll go this year or not, but I just need me a Disney fix of some kind. lol The weather is rather atrocious here isn't it. But your pictures are so beautiful. If we could just keep the snow and not get the ice, I wouldn't mind. How about you?
Welcome home!

I love all the pictures - especially you and Snow White - adorable!! Glad you had a good time, and a safe trip back home.

When you mentioned Winter Park, I immediately thought of Winter Haven, but that's where Cypress Gardens is. Don't think I've been to WP. Love the outdoor cafe - SO pretty!!

Thanks for sharing, Joan!

Hi Joan, Sure wish I were in Florida. This snow and ice really doesn't make my day! I hate it. The only good part is I can work from home so I don't have a messy commute. Glad to hear you had a good time.

Yuck, this snow is terrible!! I love your new banner... it reminds me of spring!

June said...

Are you trying to think Spring with the new look?! I like it and it does make me think Spring!! They already called school off tomorrow too! Allison just tried to take Coco outside and the back door was frozen shut! Come spring and quickly!!!!!

What a rude awakening. Not to fear your snow is headed our way. Instead of below zero temps we'll have a snowstorm. Oh joy.
Love the picture of Mickey and Minnie!
