Photo Flashback ~ Mother's Day Surprise

It's time for Photo Flashback Friday here at Focused on the Magic!
Time to once again dust off our Walt Disney World photo albums and take another look at some of our favorite photos from vacations past.
This weekend we'll be celebrating Mother's Day and today I'd like to share a post about one very magical Disney Mother's Day Surprise.

One Mother's Day my 2 sons and husband gave me a very special gift. A solo trip for a week at The Flower & Garden Festival! It was a magical gift!
I woke up at home on Mother’s Day to a wonderfully prepared breakfast with cards, flowering plants and my family. That alone was very special and thoughtful. They're not gourmet cooks but they whipped up some super eggs and bacon with toast. Then I was whisked away to the airport for my flight to the villas at Saratoga Springs Spa and Resort in Disney World.

To many of you it may sound like a peculiar gift for Mother’s Day, to spend time alone in Disney World. It was a perfect gift for me, but then I’m a little peculiar. If you've read my blog you know I'm a huge Disney fan and I enjoy photography. What you may not know is that I'm a flower photography obsessed gardening fanatic. 
My family new I’d truly enjoy the week. They also new they couldn't afford to send anyone with me. I would have to go solo. Being solo I would concentrate on doing things I enjoy. Quite often we mothers put aside our likes and dislikes in favor of what our families would enjoy. This is especially true for me when we're vacationing. I always defer to their likes, needs and wants. I truly enjoy it!

My magical week was spent eating whenever and whatever I wanted, taking pics late into the night and days of enjoying the pool, meets and flowers. I took the time to not only smell the roses but take pics of them. what a magical memorable dear sweet gift!!

    Deb, that is the best present and you know how much I love the Flower and Garden ;-) Beautiful pics ..

  3. Gotta love those solo trips! For many years I would travel to WDW by myself in the Fall - while the International Food and Wine Festival was going on. My daughter would either take a day or two off to spend with me while I was there, or I would have the day to myself (while she was working) and meet me after work. Those were wonderful - and relaxing - trips!
