Long Days Short Years
The countdown is on: 5…4…3…2…1. And then it changes. But then is not now. Now we load up and prepare to head out for spring break. As I write this blog, we have 5 more spring breaks until our oldest is scheduled to cross the stage and become a high school graduate. It was only yesterday we were at Kindergarten graduation. Where does the time go?
It’s been said, “The days are long, but the years are short.” We are feeling this in our family and doing our best to make the most of every moment. We are choosing to leverage each and every opportunity we can as a family to make memories and travel to new experiences.
I’m the planner of the family. At times this can be greatly annoying. However, some thoughtful planning also can clarify just how much we need to maximize our spring breaks, summer vacations and fall or winter holidays if we want to have memories, moments and adventures prior to the pomp and circumstance being played at graduation.
My wife and I made the commitment (and financial investment) not to let one spring break or other vacation opportunity go by without making it count. Disney vacation planning makes it easy to ensure that a variety of vacations can be experienced with no regrets and lots of life memories. Whether it’s a trip to one of the Disney Theme Parks, a sailing excursion on a Disney Cruise Line, an exquisite Adventures by Disney vacation around the world, or a relaxing escape to Aulani - A Disney Resort and Spa in beautiful and exotic Hawaii, there are more options than years left to satisfy families of all dynamics.
Where will you go this year? What will you do? What memories will you make? What adventures will you experience? Time is of the essence. Make the most of each opportunity. Let our Golly What A Day Vacations team of Travel Planners help map a plan for making the most of the short years. Our services are free, and your vacation memories will be priceless.
