It’s National Coffee Day and what a beautiful day it is. But then, any day that starts with a warm mug of coffee is a good day for me.Read More
I’m a slow runner. I’ve never broken records, I’ve never placed first in my age group, and I don’t run marathons, but I’m a runner and I love it. I won’t pretend that, at 51 years of age, my body doesn’t complain – it does – but I keep running. Why? Because running teaches me to put one foot in front of the other and to keep moving forward, and in times like these, I need that reminder. Every. Day.Read More

Disney is a dream destination when it comes to food – at least, I know it is for me. It’s the first thing that comes to my mind when someone mentions Walt Disney World.

Finally, spring is upon us and Easter is just two weeks away! It’s time to celebrate the end of a long Canadian winter and welcome the colours and warmth of spring.
This has always been, without a doubt, our favourite time of year to visit Walt Disney World Resort, and I feel very fortunate to say that we have a history of having been able to fly Home in April every year or two.

“Registration Coming Soon.” It feels like I’ve been reading those words for a very long time.
Clear Your Calendar and Be Race Ready
Well ‘soon’ has finally come, and for me (along with no doubt thousands of others), it’s tomorrow: registration for Disney’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend opens at 10 am ET.
My calendar is clear for the entire morning and I’ve got an alarm set on my phone for an hour before the actual registration time (just in case I should forget).Read More
We have been fortunate enough to enjoy afternoon tea in the Garden View Tea Room at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa many times over the years, and it has become a family tradition for every trip.CONTINUE READING
If you’re like me, you typically eat the same four or five breakfast meals over and over: toast, eggs, cereal, and oatmeal. Well, when I’m away on vacation, the one thing I allow myself to indulge in is breakfast. And indulge I do.
On our recent trip to Walt Disney World in April I could not get enough of their breakfast potatoes. Whether it was in a cheesy casserole, or baked muffin-style (I’ll write about those another day), I loved them. And all of them gluten-free.CONTINUE READING
