It's a Small World

I'm back from Walt Disney World!{at the last evening's Gala}

And although I didn't get to visit any of the parks, it was a nice business trip indeed! This was my first stay at the Contemporary Resort so I took some pictures upon arrival.

The lighting was particularly impressive: from the dimming recessed lighting above each pillow (each with their own switch); to the lighting underneath the flat screen that highlighted the mosaic tile design; the lighting inside the entry closets (with frosted glass fronts); and then the lit mirrors in the bathroom were interesting as well.

Quite a successful trip- and then on my way back to the airport, I had a chance to reconnect with an old college friend and her husband. She's still recovering from a nasty bus accident 1.5 yrs ago and it was great seeing her still-smiling face and meeting her sweet hubby. Wow- I hope things return to "normal" for them soon. It was a nice reminder though of how blessed we all are to have loved ones, to have our health, and to have the financial means to live comfortably!

I sometimes forget where all of my friends have been dispersed...thank goodness for the Internet to help link us back up.

It's a small world after all!
