Those are the exact words I googled the day we decided that we were going to take Falynn to LEGOLAND for her 7th birthday. I had already visited the LEGOLAND website and was impressed... but the price... yikes. โฃ

Turns out, all of the reviews were right. Check out the blog today and see whether or not we thought @legolandflorida hotel was worth the price. โฃ

I'm a Florida girl... born and raised. So when the temperature drops, I'm honestly a little bit clueless. #sponsored Oh, and when we travel to places that have cooler weather... I never know what to pack to make sure we stay warm. I do have one must-have though... our @myroovia personal space heater. It's so small and compact, it can go wherever we go. Plus, when we get to our destination, #Roovia plugs right into the wall so we don't have to worry about cords or cables! I love that you can set the temperature, the fan speed and the timer for up to 12 hours. And for our cooler Florida weather (sometimes we drop to the 30's if we're lucky), Roovia is perfect for the bedroom or to take into the office! Where do you need a personal space heater? #WinterWithRooviaโฃ

Valentine idea #6: For when...

Life is a lot like an amusement park ride. We all start off waiting in a line, listening to or reading instructions on what is about to happen. They warn you about safety and how to get the most enjoyment out of your experience. Some listen carefully and others are distracted by other, less important things.โฃ
โฃ
And then the ride begins. We all start off slow, cautious, anticipating what the ride will be like for us. Will it be fun? Will it be scary? Exciting? A little bit of everything? We question our abilities and whether or not we paid enough attention. This is it, there is no turning back now. โฃโฃ
โฃ
Once it starts to increase in speed, we either close our eyes tightly or we give ourselves a pep talk. Maybe we realize that itโ€™s not as bad as we thought. So we throw our hands up and enjoy the moment. We take a snapshot in our mind and wish for this feeling more often. The feeling of accomplishment, of exhilaration, of freedom. โฃโฃ
โฃ
Itโ€™s that 10 second rush that changes something in us. It might make us want to wait on that line again. It might make us want to try an even faster ride. It makes the rest of the moments at that theme park seem just a little bit mundane. We want to spend the rest of our time looking for that feeling again. And again.โฃโฃ
โฃ
But then, the ride slows down and eventually comes to a complete stop. Everyone exits and has a decision to make. Do they go back on again or do they try a new ride? Do they go home, happy to have experienced that one moment or do they seek out more? What will you do?โฃ

    Wow! Great minds. I have kinda similar notes on my Evernote. They are very great to read at the end of the year because they help you motivate to do more, and it’s a win-win feeling to actually rememner your achievement no matter how small.

    This is amazing.

    It is something I’d love to discuss with my wife. This is my first time coming here and I am glued already.

    Reading is part of my goal for this year. I believe reading is very powerful, someone can become a mini-expert on a topic if he/she just read 3 books on that topic. And they can become an expert if they read like 100 books and implement the teachings in the books.

    It is all my personal opinions from my experience.

    Please keep up the good work on this site.
    Much Love.
