Sunday Salon: End of August and a Small Break

No, not a small break from blogging, but a small break from thesis writing for me. My boyfriend woke me up on Monday morning with the announcement that he had booked a hotel near Disney and that we were to leave in a few hours.

I tried to feature the pictures that show how happy this made me (although the first shows me looking scared because I’m driving in France for the first time). I spent three days skipping around, going “oohh!” and “aahh!” and boring my boyfriend with my endless pictures of every detail.

I was also reminded of how much I like Winnie the Pooh and the cuteness of Walle and how, as a girl, Belle was my favourite princess because she would read and dance at the same time.

Either way, I had a small break and I feel much better about tackling the last leg of my thesis now. I do wonder what happened to August, because it seems it arrived and now it is suddenly September and I have no clue how time is passing so fast.. But at least it has been sunny outside these last 2 days (finally, summer!) and it was sunny in France while it was raining at home (hahaa!)

Nothing much of interest from me, this Sunday. I’ll try to write a more intelligent post next week.

  2. aaah there they are…the pictures I mean…..nice!

  3. Kudos to your boyfriend who sounds amazing! And I LOVE that Belle statue!! Disney World here doesn’t have anything like that. Beauty and the Beast is by far my favorite Disney movie and I have all kinds of Beauty and the Beast things at my house, lol.

  4. Sometimes the most comforting and happy place is the place that brings out our inner child. Happy for your fun! (And I am a big Pooh fan too.)

  5. What a sweet, sweet guy. I’m so glad you got a good break in. Goodness knows, you need it. Now back to work! ;)

  6. What an awesome idea your boyfriend had! Sometimes it’s good to just walk away for a bit and do something fun to get your mind off of things.

  7. What a great boyfriend! Looks like a really fun break!

  8. I used to live in California. Mom and Dad would wake us often with the news that we were going to Disneyland that day. Some of my best memories! I think I’d feel as excited now. :-) Glad you had fun!

  11. Aw, what a caring & astute boyfriend. Sometimes a few days of total time off & carefree activities can do wonders for a person’s concentration when they get back to a long project. So glad you had a nice break!

  12. There is nothing wrong with a guy that surprises you will a trip to Disney! I love it. You know, we go to the theme parks all the time here, but that sense of youth and wonder never leaves me every time I walk through the gates. Grown-ups needs this kind of thing every now again.

One of the things I love about book blogging is that it enables conversation. Please don't hesitate to share your thoughts!
