Happy Friday and welcome to the latest installment of my 12 Months of Happiness series. I know I say this almost every month but I really do LOVE this series of mine. It never fails to make me smile when I’m jotting down all the things that made me happy that particular month. Sometimes I sit back and think “man, it seems like not that much happened this month compared to last month, etc.” but if this series has taught me anything it’s to appreciate all the happy moments in life, even the small/minor ones! Some days, weeks or months are going to be better than others and that’s just a fact but if we focus on the good things going on in our lives, we’ll generally be happier people! June turned out to be an amazing month (with a last minute trip to Disney World) and I can only hope that July is just as great! Here are some of the things that made me happy this month: (Don’t forget to comment down below how your June went and what things made you smile this month! I LOVE hearing from you guys about what makes you happy!)
This month I took an impromptu trip to Walt Disney World (aka my second home!). Although I’ve visited Disney World (and Disneyland) 30+ times (honestly, I’ve stopped counting), I NEVER get tired of it (hence why I’m an annual passholder to Disneyland, Disney World and Disneyland Paris). I can’t really put it into words but there’s just something about the “Disney atmosphere” that makes me so happy. Some people get excited about going to a concert, or going out clubbing/ bar hopping with friends or buying a new outfit but me, I get excited about visiting my pals Mickey and Minnie and riding It’s A Small World and eating Dole Whip. If you couldn’t tell from the photos, this trip was all about pigging out on yummy snacks (that rainbow Mickey Krispie treat was so yummy!).
Another reason I love visiting the Disney Parks so much is because no matter how many times I visit, there’s always something new to explore! During this trip I got to explore Pandora – The World of Avatar, the newest addition to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Although I’m not the biggest Avatar fan, I loved Pandora and I definitely thing it’s worth visiting (Avatar fan or not!). I really loved the overall atmosphere and look of Pandora, both of the new rides and the food (you can check out my review of Satu’li Canteen here!).
You know that feeling most people get when they get to see their favorite artist in concert? That’s how I feel whenever I see a Broadway show! I just love the theatre so much. Earlier this week I got to see the King and I and it was so amazing (the costuming alone was breathtaking!).
Here’s a few other things that made me happy in June:
- The beautiful weather here in Chicago (after being in Orlando in 98+ degree weather, I’m loving this 70-80 degree Chitown weather)!
- I got an adorable new Kingdom of Cute WonderGround Gallery backpack from Disney World!
- Summer officially started!
- Potbelly came out with an AMAZING seasonal Frozen Raspberry Lemonade!
- My favorite summer show, Big Brother, started earlier this week (can we talk about how crazy this season has been so far?!).
- I was invited to the Disney Pixar Cars 3 screening (I had such a blast!).
- I bought tickets to see Something Rotten! and An American in Paris next month (told you I LOVED Broadway!).
