I finished the last book in the Dare Island Series over the weekend and my plan was to start The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe. And I did but I was not ready to leave the Outer Banks behind for the South Carolina Low country. So I started The Outer Banks Baker Mystery.
Last Monday my parents celebrated 35 years of marriage. And now that my mom has been given her surprise anniversary gift, if I had a mountain top to shout it from I would. I am going on a Disney Cruise! I am so excited and we are going to Disney World again. We are not going till much later this year but I have something to look forward too. My aunt and cousins will be going to Disney World with too. I’m super excited to see what a Disney Cruise is like, I have heard they are amazing!
Last week I was watching the Full House episodes where they go to Disney World. First it was so strange seeing how different it is now compared to back then. Second it was even stranger to think that when that was filmed Animal Kingdom was not even open yet. Now I am just so use to Animal Kingdom being one of the staples I sometimes forget it is the youngest park.
I don’t know if I should admit to this or not but I am. I just recently learned you can watch some of the Disney Parks nighttime shows on the Disney Now app. So at least once a week (but usually twice) I watch Happily Ever After, the Magic Kingdom’s nighttime show. They are not live shows but I’m okay with that. I love the music!
Well I am starting the last book in the Dare Island Series today. It is bittersweet, I like moving on to a new series but I will miss the characters from this series. That is the best part about series the characters start to feel like family/friends. The other down side about finishing this series is no more Outer Banks. I loved feeling like I was back in the Outer Banks while reading these. But I have tons of options at home on which direction to head next. I am not lacking on book choices that is for sure.
For the first time in a long time, I am looking forward to getting off work and going home and reading. I have found my reading groove again! I love reading and really hate when I get into a reading funk. This week I have been reading before I get in the shower, after the shower, and even before I start work, but most importantly I finished a book I started in November. It is hard to explain how nice it feels to not have that unfinished book staring at you day in and day out and you don’t have an urge to pick it up and finish it.
