Happy Wednesday! I can’t believe it’s August already (seriously, where is the time going?!). I’m super excited because in less than two weeks I’ll be back at my second home, Disney World! BUT, that’s not all! I’ll also be visiting Universal Studios while I’m in Florida (I’ve decided to become an annual passholder there since I’m a Disney annual passholder and visit the area so often) which means I get to FINALLY explore Springfield, U.S.A and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter again!

It’s funny because I never used to be a “concert person” (when it comes to live music I’ve always been more of a Broadway person. Speaking of Broadway, I STILL can’t believe I’m seeing Hamilton in October! Words can’t describe how excited I am) but for the past three years or so, I’ve learned to really LOVE concerts! Even if it’s an artist I don’t really like (or am that familiar with), there’s just something about the energy and vibe of concerts that I really love! Continue reading
