Family time at the Walt Disney World Resort. This month in particular, we’ve visited Disney Theme Parks every week. Why? Cooler temperatures initiated it.
Mid Life Celebration has kept it alive. A mid life crisis is when a sort of panic (or doubt) sets in that has us question if we are on the correct path in our lives. Can’t remember ever being so busy with life. Can you?
