Some days just end on a really good note. It could be a kiss from your child, an extra long hug hello waiting for you from your spouse after you arrive home from a hectic day or it can be a sunset you catch alone while in your car after a really fun dinner with a friend.
As this year of themes comes to a close, I reflect back on what I’ve learned, what others have shared, the friendships that have formed and the beauty in it all. Namaste and God Bless.
Hearts and Harts
My heart has been in Orlando the past two weekends. The first was for an annual trip to Disney’s Magic Kingdom with my two nieces. Our age doesn’t matter or change our love for making this annual trip happen. We chat about visiting the Magic Kingdom throughout the year and it was our chance to go and enjoy our day together.
Unbeknownst to me, I would be invited back to Orlando the very next weekend by my best friend. Debbie and I have been best friends since childhood when we lived in upstate New York. She relocated to Orlando as an intern at Disney and has been there for almost twenty-five years now, promotion after promotion. She met her prince charming not so long ago and married Shel “Hart”. My second weekend back to Orlando was to attend a special gathering at their new home in Celebration, Florida. The evening was a gathering of family and special friends to “celebrate” the gender unveiling of their twins due in November, the miracle of it all and the prayers answered to date.
I hope my photograph captured the love in the “Harts'” “hearts”; father, mother, son and daughter!

Some of life’s best moments just happen by being in the right place at the right time. I’ve not been graced with a family of my own at this point so witnessing a photo shoot of a couple expecting their first child out on the beach at sunset was quite magical. The photographer here asked them to get into a couple of different poses. One was him kneeling down with one hand on his wife’s plump belly and kissed it. It was precious to be witnessing this from afar. I hope the couple is extremely happy with their photographs and they’re holding their healthy newborn by now!
