And just allow me for a second to sing the praises of our leader and Disney expert extra-ordinaire, Tangie..... She had the best put-together itinerary for the 4 days that we were together. It was evident that she did her homework and went step-by-step through the park planning our days together and the time spent at each perfect journaling spot. I imagine her being lead by Tinker bell herself as she planned and created each and every detail.
I took lots of photos of our time together.
and psssst.....I hear we may be doing this again in October
Cindy and I waiting for the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
This was the first ride we did as a group.
(check out the dude behind us…photobomb….lol!!)
I made this journal page shortly after the pirates ride over in the Saloon.
That's what I loved so much about this retreat is that you get a chance…and take the time to
journal while inspiration is fresh in your mind.
loved the "square" trees over by Alice
Teacups were closed for the evening because of the rain.
but it made for a wonderful shot.
