Animal Kingdom Flags by Graeme W

Here is the sky bridge at the Orlando Science Center. Each heart has a note about what love means to the individual who made it. It means a lot to be working somewhere that is trying to be as progressive and diverse as humanely possible. We offer a wide variety of programs for all types of people and it is really awesome to be a part of the Education team. I love where I work.

Your transformation Tuesday won’t be the same as that other girl’s. It may not be a simple before and after photo. You may have lost weight, gained some back, lost some again. You may have suffered an eating disorder or two in between. You may not be as “skinny” as you used to be. But that’s okay. Your journey to health won’t always be that perfect picture. That’s okay. Your journey to health might be choosing your mental health over having the six pack of abs. Everything is okay. You’re a ray of sunshine. This journey isn’t easy…but you are stronger for it. 💪💚#transformationtuesday #beforeandafter #transformation #ucf #centralflorida #orlando #fitfam #recoveryispossible #recovery #fitness #keepgoing

I made a quilt for #QuiltsforPulse Charity Drive- it’s the top and bottom quilt above. The organizers asked for quilts with rainbows and/or hearts, and I’m very pleased with how it came out. (also, you guys should really check out the #quiltsforpulse tag on Instagram- so many wonderful quilts- it really warms my heart seeing page after page of quilts made in support)

After I made the top I had these colorful scraps left behind, so I challenged myself to use all the scraps up, and suddenly I had two more quilt tops!

I’ve send in the main quilt, but the other two are listed in my shop. The proceeds from the sale of these quilts will be donated to Equality Florida.

An Aerial View by Disney Photo Tour
Via Flickr:
Today’s photo tour takes us to the top of the Contemporary Resort for a shot of three of my favorite things: Sunsets, Space Mountain and the Walt Disney World Monorail System. Shooting from the observatory deck is probably one of the best places to get a really open shot of the Magic Kingdom and all its surrounding areas. It truly gives you a good idea of how much land Disney is built on. Have you ever photographed the park from up here? Have magical day! Visit Disney Photo Tour on Facebook and Instagram

3450 World Drive
Orlando, Florida

Site of the former Walt Disney World Speedway.

Built in 1995 primarily as a venue for the newly formed Indy Racing League, a 200-mile IRL race was held here every January from 1996 to 2000. The NASCAR Truck Series also ran the opening rounds of its 1997 and 1998 seasons here.

The track’s nickname was “The Mickyard”, a portmanteau of Mickey Mouse (because of its location on the grounds of the Walt Disney World resort) and Brickyard (a nod to its primary purpose as an IndyCar circuit).
