My daughter and I were at the Orange County airport waiting for our plane, and we saw the luggage cart drop this piece of luggage. Ugh, probably ruined someone’s day. The woman driving the cart was driving like a mad woman, it’s no wonder only one piece of luggage fell off. An airline employee picked it up, but took it in the opposite direction that the woman had been driving. I will never again take for granted that my luggage makes it to the carousel!

Harry Potter-England!

I had no idea that I would cry on the Harry Potter tour! After watching a quick clip of the actors welcoming us to the tour, the white screen goes up, revealing the entrance to Hogwarts! We’re like “WOW!” and then the doors opened……holy sh*t!!! I literally gasped!!! I was so surprised to see the Great Hall! I totally started crying, hahahaha. It literally took my breath away. To see J.K. Rowlings book come to life before my eyes, it was like stepping into her mind! I feel honored and privileged to experience everything at the Warner Brothers studios!

Wish You Were Here

My youngest, Jonathan can’t travel long distances due to his medical condition, so he will stay home with grandma, grandpa, and auntie Mel. Leaving Johnny behind is a horrible feeling. As a mom, I want all my kids with me all the time. I miss him terribly already!! But if I don’t go, I will regret not going, and I will regret not giving Sara and Ben opportunities to grow socially and culturally. I haven’t spent a lot of time with Ben since he moved in with his dad 6 years ago, which has broken my heart.
So, I’m off to London today with Sara and Ben!! We have a layover in the north west (no, not Kim Kardashian’s baby! hahahaha), then straight away to Heathrow! Praying for safe travel and smooth flying! I will see you soon London! I will see you in 17 days my sweet Johnny xoxo

I met a friend in the shade…

I was at an Art and Wine festival this week-end in Alameda, Ca. It was pretty warm for the area, loud, crowded, no where to sit. My daughter was starting to get over heated when I found a little Italian man holding a welcome sign to a restaurant. He was tucked in a little tiny bit of shade. He was very nice, so I took a selfie with him, hahahaha.
