It's no secret that Disney World is a special place in my family. We spent many a Sansom family vacation in there. Being from a family of all girls, except for my dad who grew up in a Disney-loving family himself, we all loved meeting the princesses, riding the not-too-rollercoaster-y rides, and dining with characters in the most magical place on earth. Then, I met and married a man who is from Central Florida, so now we have the perfect excuse to Disney-it-up when we go to visit friends and family in his hometown.
A few weeks ago Jason and I spent our first night away from our baby girl. My parents live just about 30 minutes from Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort (just a few minutes East of Destin), so Jason and I dropped off B with her Honey and Poppy and drove into a little slice of paradise.
I've always loved the city. The BIG city. Put me in London or New York or LA and I'm a happy traveler. Honestly, the bigger the better. But now, I have a daughter and the thought of public transportation with a stroller and a squirmy baby makes me want to crawl into a fetal position.
Oh, Portland. In one week I had several life experiences, which included feeling 50 degree weather in August, the most beautiful panoramic views, watching a guy hand out "brownies" on the street, and smelling some of the worst and best smells ever. I got to see "the coast" (not to be confused with "the beach"), a giant waterfall, and we even got to meet our case worker (#journeytojudah)! I ate some delicious food, drank incredible coffee, and relaxed. What a wonderful trip it truly was!
