Not taking your playground for granted

Another friend of mine, this one from college, started a week of vacation time in the area at Walt Disney World. I can't even put into words how awesome it is that people I rarely would see elsewhere cross through Orlando. My best friend mentioned that as one of the serious upsides of living here, but it might be one of my favorite things.

There is one other advantage to this, in that it causes us to see families "doing Disney" through their eyes. There is no question that sometimes you forget that it's a special place for people who go once a year or less, when you can spontaneously decide to go just for ice cream. Today we visited the Art of Animation hotel, and it was really fabulous. They're going to have a great week making memories.

After more than nine months, there are times now and then where I kind of forget, hey, you have access to some very cool stuff to do. It isn't just the theme parks either... we can go to the Kennedy Space Center, go on cruises without flying anywhere, go to the gulf and Atlantic coasts, enjoy a growing and robust downtown area... so much to do!

I won't say that we're "lucky," because we did after all choose to move here, but I do have to be reminded now and then not to take this environment for granted. We have a pretty great playground.
