Me and Mine {July 2017}

Okay so it’s been just over a month since my last Me and Mine post and July came and went in a flash. It wasn’t one without adventure – in fact we had the most adventure we’ve had all year and that’s why this post is late – but I’m definitely looking forward to a rest in August

We started the month with the rest of my birthday celebrations and a trip to see Adele on the Saturday 1st July – although it didn’t quite work out that way as sadly the date I was going to was the one she cancelled. I am so hopeful for a reschedule as she’s been on the bucket list to see for years

The following weekend we hopped on a plane for some Disney magic in Florida, going with my mum and dad, my sister and best friend for 2 weeks and staying in a gorgeous house with a lovely swimming pool. We spent quality family time together as both a big unit and as a small unit and spent the 2 weeks both off and on the beaten track. We love visiting Florida, absolutely adore Disney and whenever we are there we always visit where we got married nearly 6 years ago – a place called Leu Gardens

We didn’t end our month of adventures there when we arrived back very jetlagged on the Sunday, in fact we stepped it up and went to Camp Bestival the following Friday. Aside from a few mishaps (leaking and collapsing tent on the Friday night) and having to return home soggy and cold, we came back on the Saturday having had a lovely weekend and we are all hoping to return next year

As you can probably understand, we’re desperate to have some relaxation time for a few weeks but until then let’s look back at the beautiful Floridian skies from our trip away. They’re a mixture of Disney photopass photos and some from our trip to Leu Gardens and Winter Park, but I think they sum up our month of adventure perfectly

In July…

Sherry loved:

  • Going back to where we got married in Leu Gardens and spending the morning there
  • Watching J splash about in the fountains in Celebration and eating some lovely ice cream as she played
  • Returning to Camp Bestival, watching J have lots of fun in the mud and cheering as the sun came out on Sunday

Hubster loved:

  • Watching J get made into a princess at Bibbidy Bobbidi Boutique
  • Spending most of July feeling as though we weren’t at work
  • Having some quality time at the place we got married

J loved:

  • Camping. There’s not much else that can be added to that because quite frankly she enjoyed it so much and cried when we left on Friday night due to the tent collapse. She’s asked to do it pretty much constantly since we returned
  • Dancing around with Pluto at Chef Mickeys and being a princess for a day
  • The pool and all of the water in Florida. She was in our swimming pool at the house pretty much every day and is such a water baby with so much confidence

Lexi loved…

  • Spending 2 weeks with her pal Archie


I finish the post with some photos with our holiday group and our best friend at Leu Gardens. August is definitely slower, with J about to start school we’re having a scaled back month with a one day festival and a work trip for me
