    I have been trying to learn fake calligraphy because I don’t want to spend a fortune on the instruments for real calligraphy. It’s so fun!

    Love the royal family, they are so close to normal considering they may be running a country soon. Also I am so beyond excited about Disney Channel replaying their movies, Zenon and Alley Cats are totally on my list, but really all of them will probably be watched lol.

    Zenon, what a throwback! I never got the Disney channel at home so I was always so excited to stay at my Grandma’s because I could watch it there haha. I’ve always wanted to learn hand lettering but my writing is just not up to par!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
