Wordless Wednesday: Tomorrowland Rainbow #OrlandoUnited

Wordless Wednesday – June 15, 2016

Wordless Wednesday Rainbow over Tomorrowland

This week’s Wordless Wednesday (well it isn’t really that wordless) takes me back to 2013 to a rainbow at the Magic Kingdom over Tomorrowland.

It was a super early morning during a media event, and there was a really bad thunderstorm that morning. After the storm passed we went into the park, and as I turned to look at Tomorrowland I snapped this picture of this vivid rainbow on my phone.

And while I remembered the storm, and I have been through many since, the beauty and tranquility of this moment has always stuck with me.

National Doughnut Day Deals

This is not a drill…Today is National Doughnut Day, and while we celebrate the glorious doughnut we are also celebrating The Salvation Army and the great work that they do!

Held annually on the first Friday of June, Doughnut Day was established by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor The Salvation Army’s “Doughnut Lassies,” who served the treats to soldiers during World War I. The “Doughnut Lassies” are often credited with popularizing the doughnut in the United States when the troops returned home from war.
