joe is usually really good at surprises. there is the occasional "i'm too excited and i just have to tell you!" but he's good. he knows what he's doing, that dreamboat.
so, he told me to set aside sunday for an adventure day, all day, just the two of us. i was positively giddy! the idea of a surprise day where i'm not in charge of planning anything?! and i get my sweetheart all to myself? heaven. then he surprised me with disney tickets and i was SO shocked, i cried. yes. i'm the girl who had had an annual pass for 5+ years of her life but i'm still excited for disneyland. especially at christmas time!
warning: lots of pictures.
at the end of the day, we got to see the fireworks and experience snow on main street. it really is the most magical thing! it felt like a movie. i literally found myself smiling at complete strangers as if i'd known them for years. it's the magic disney snow! and it's the closest this socal girl will get to snow this year.
i am soaking up all the time i can get with my italian this christmas. we will be spending the actual holiday apart from each other (maybe for the last time?). so we are conquering all the holiday shopping and activities together. it's beginning to look a lot like christmas...
