The last roundup of books for 2018! I can hardly believe it. I’m trying to finish out the year strong with reading, but like I mentioned last month I’ve slowed down a little bit. Blame it on the holidays, a sudden lack in my attention span, and Hallmark movies. Such…

@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!

Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
