Today is Best Friends Day. Best friends are the family you would have if you could pick your family. In the best of all situations, your best friends are your family. In the best of the best of all situations, your best friend is your life partner. Those are the relationships that last for a lifetime. I will be married for twenty-five years this October. I have been to Walt Disney World with my best friend eight times. Take your best friend to the most Magical Place on Earth.
Today is National Relaxation Day. Chill. Take care of business and then chill again. Repeat. Go to Walt Disney World, even better, go on a Disney Cruise. That’s relaxing.
On this date in 1901, Ned Washington was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Washington was nominated for an Oscar twelve times and helped write: “When You Wish Upon A Star,” “Baby Mine,” and the title song for Saludos Amigos. With a tear in my eye, I tell you, go to the Magic Kingdom and stay until the end of the day for Wishes. Wishes is the nightly firework show and features “When You Wish Upon A Star.” It’s not a trip without it.
2009, on The Boardwalk, Kouzzina by Cat Cora opened on this date. Kouzzina serves Greek and Mediterranean cuisine and my kids say that Kouzzina, by itself, makes the dining plan worth it. They love it and you will too.
Remember, your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
