Lemon Moon

I was putting Scarlett to bed over the weekend, and we were laying in her bed talking. About the moon, about going swimming, about everything really, and she mentioned for the 187th time that she wants to go to Disneyland and meet Minnie Mouse. I told her that when I was 10, Nana and Papaw took us to Disneyland, and in fact we went on my 10th birthday (there really was no topping birthdays after that point).

We stayed with my aunt and uncle while we were there, and one night, my cousin took me into the backyard to look through his telescope at the moon. I had never seen the moon through a telescope before, and it was magical.

Creamy white and grey and glowy, pocked with craters that I couldn't fathom. 

It was early June, a cool breeze rustled through the lemon trees, and the scent of lemons twisted through our hair.

It really was the best birthday ever, that entire trip. Disney and swimming and lemon trees and the moon (and a surprise birthday party complete with new Shaun Cassidy album - SCORE)!

I think I was born without the Disney gene. I've never been or had the desire to go. Thankfully, my kids are missing it too. Instead, they request trips to Paris and!

You look amaze-balls! Love the blue on you!

Courtnee - I'm not a fan of the D either. I mean, sure we'd like to take the kids at least once while they're kids, but other than that? No. I used to work with a woman who was OBSESSED with Disney, and it was a little weird for an almost-40-year old. And don't even get me started on Disney related clothing. Blech. Your kids have the right idea!

Amy - why THANK you!!!

I've never been to Disney land! I think I'm a bit too old now lol. I really like this outfit it's laid back & dressy at the same time plus a great colour, awesome. I wanna see some close-ups of those shoes!!
