EPCOT

Happy time change day!! Hope getting up today hasn’t been too rough on anyone. A little bit tougher here as it’s (finally) raining and the sound of the drops hitting our rooftop always make me calmer and a bit drowsy. Not complaining though as I love that we’re finally getting a much needed soaking and hope it continues […] Read more…
