September 2014 monthly round up

Happy September!  It’s one of my favorite months of the year.  To start things off it’s my anniversary (we will be celebrating 3 years on the 3rd!), and it’s also one of my favorite times of year to visit Disney World.  We went for our honeymoon and it was so empty we hardly had to wait for anything.
