It’s been too long! Wow, okay so I feel really bad about taking so long to make this post. There has just been so much going on. Just a week after our trip to Sleepy Hollow, Erik & I hopped on a plane to Orlando, Florida with his family to spend 8 days in Disney World! The trip was planned over the span of about 16 months. This was crucial for me due to my dietary restrictions and other symptoms and side effects of living alongside Hashimoto’s. With that said, this post will outline how I survived 8 days in Disney World with thyroid disease.
If you know me – or have read my blog before – you know I love Autumn. I love the transition of humid, muggy Summer air into cool, crisp, colorful Fall. This time last year, Erik & I had tickets to see my favorite band, Jimmy Eat World, up in Port Chester, New York. After realizing that the concert would be a little far for a same day trip, we decided to stay for the weekend and explore Sleepy Hollow since I had always wanted to visit. We had such a great time taking the tours and learning the history of The Tarrytowns (Sleepy Hollow didn’t really exist when Washington Irving wrote “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” It was actually North Tarrytown up until 1996. It and it’s neighboring village, Tarrytown, were known simply as ‘The Tarrytowns.’) that we knew we had to go back this year.
This week’s post is probably going to be a little overwhelming. I normally take photos over the weekend and write my new posts early in the week so that they are prepared and ready to go on Saturday mornings. This week was a little different because I went on my annual camping trip to Knoebels with Erik, my Mom, & some of the kids from the local First Aid Squad that my Mom is a member of.
