Happy Autumn!

Yay! It's here! Although, here in Southern Nevada it doesn't feel like it. We are normally in the low 90's during the day but, the evenings cool down to about the 70's. But, for some reason it's been climbing up into the 100's again....blah! I'm ready for boots, scarves and sweaters.

One day I will make it back to Massachusetts and take a walk amongst the turning leaves in the woods and feel a crisp wind on my face.

Posted are just some images from the good ol' internet to celebrate the beauty of Autumn.

Halloween at Disneyland

I have a small dream coming true. I'm going to Disneyland in October! Wheee! Disneyland has always been a bit of a dream for me. I went a couple of times when I was a kid, once as an adult on my honeymoon with my first husband, and once with my son when he was about 4 (that was well over 20 years ago). So my memories of it were a bit foggy.

I didn't go back until last June when my husband took me for my 50th birthday. I was a bit resistant to go. I love Disney and Disneyland but, it's expensive and I hate crowds. I've been meaning to go back but, for the last 25 years I've either had the time but no money or I've had the money but no time.

I'm now at an age where I need to start doing all that stuff on my bucket list. So we went in June and had a great time and I've fallen in love with Disney all over again. I've a totally new appreciation for the park and the magic of Disney. Since I didn't have to run around after a small child and worry if he was getting too hot, hungry or tired, I could just appreciated where I was at the moment.

I'm so obsessed with Disney that I've planned to go there in the beginning of October as I've heard that the park goes all out for Halloween. Wow, Disney and Halloween all rolled into one! I can't wait!

Here are some pics I found online of Halloween 2014 at Disneyland.

 If any of you have been to Disneyland during Halloween and have any tips for visiting the park at that time, please let me know. I don't want to miss anything!
