'Ohana means family, and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten. 

If you don't know where that quote is from, we can't be friends. Just kidding. It's Lilo & Stitch for those of you who don't have your lives together.

One of my favorite restaurants at Disney is 'Ohana's, which is located at the Polynesian Resort. For breakfast, it's a family style character meal. Characters include Mickey, Pluto, Lilo, and Stitch! Cast members receive their discount here as well. 

It's rare for all six roommates to be in the same place at the same time, so I'm glad we were all able to make plans together. Here's some photos from around the resort and our breakfast!

Breakfast + Old Key West

This post is about that time I thought Disney's Old Key West Resort was wild west themed, instead of tropical beach themed. I guess I subconsciously deleted "Key" from the title?? That being said, I was in for a surprise when my roommates' and I showed up for our breakfast reservation at Olivia's Cafe. Olivia's is an American style cafe located at the resort (also, cast members get their discount here!).

Here's some photos of my roommates and I around the resort, featuring beautiful pastel walls and staircases. Reb and Kelly are my Jersey-wannabe-Southern girls, so we bond over Chacos, Kendra Scott, and the SEC (slowly incorporating "geaux tigz" into their vocabulary!!!).

Hands That Pull

Something I would like to practice boldness in is speaking life and affirmation over others.

I was on the phone with my friend Brooke the other day, and we were both feeling pretty down and discouraged about a few things. But discouraged is not how I left our conversation. After sharing some of the burdens I had been feeling, Brooke was quick to encourage me and speak truth over who I am and remind me of the promises of God that would be fulfilled to me.

It wasn't just a pat on the back or half-hearted complement to try and boost my spirits... she was so quick to affirm my identity as a Christ follower, while also dissipating any lies that told me that the Lord wouldn't come through for me.

Our conversation pushed me to seek more of the Lord even in discouragement. So I thought to myself, when have I ever given such a truth and faith-filled response to discouragement? When have I jumped at the chance to affirm all the good I see in someone? I want to be more like Brooke in this way.

Friends + Flowers

Hi friends!

Today I'm sharing some photos from our trip to Epcot's Flower & Garden festival last week. Luckily we received access to the parks just a few days before the festival ended, so naturally we had to go as soon as possible to soak up all the wonderful foods and photo opportunities.

I can't be the person who takes a bunch of food photos yet, so enjoy pics of my pretty roomies for now. Just know I had the violet lemonade, which was delicious as always; Sarah had a sparkling wine with pomegranate from France and spring rolls from China; and Mekaila had chicken and rice from China. All the kiosks had the same foods as last year, so I didn't feel the need to try everything again (also, ya girl had been unemployed for a couple weeks so ya know... gotta save the moneys).

Sarah and I compiled a bucket list of photo spots/walls, which I'll be sharing throughout the summer! Some of the pictures in this post are exclusive to the festival, but most you can find year round.
