Back from Vacation!

We are back from a lovely family vacation... can you tell where we went? =)
It was so good to get away, relax and enjoy some play time as a family, AND it is always fun when you have time to reconnect with your inner child. There is no better place to do this than Disney... it is escapism at it's best and also an artist's dream! The enchantment, sights, sounds, colors of this magical place completely encases its visitors - how can you not be inspired by a trip to Disney World? The kids had a great time swimming, meeting characters and even trick-or-treating at Magic Kingdom. The Food and Wine Festival was in full swing at Epcot, so it was lovely to sample a few wines while we were there... tasted an ice wine that was fantastic! But like all good fairytales, the story must come to an end.

It is good to be home (well minus all the laundry)... I have A LOT of catching up to do, and will (hopefully) be posting sketches later this week. Thanks for stopping by. =)

Hi Lisa!
Welcome home!
I have missed you too! Your posts and visits.
Glad you had such a wonderful time!
I agree with you it is a magical feast over there! I really felt like a child there!
I still remember the colors from Aladdin, the pale blue with gold and silver and the way it made me feel. Once I will paint a room in these colors!
Your kids look very sweet! Your family picture is also very nice!
Thanks for sharing the magic!
love >M<

Oh Lisa I am so jealous! It's -5 degrees here today. I could use a trip to Disneyworld. :) But seriously, I'm glad you had a great time, and thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures! I've been wondering where you've been ...
