Two very special people, Ashley and Stephen Sargent,  came into my life a few years ago and I’m so glad they did. They bring a ray of sunshine to any work day and are such a joy to talk to and be around. Ashley and Stephen represent what true love looks like.  Having a Wedding Planning business is the perfect way for them to share their passion for celebrating love.  I mean, I’m reading their bio’s, one of the things they love is eating breakfast at Christo’s Cafe. As ya’ll know, I do occasionally blog about my life, so I thought I’d share this part with you.

They are the husband and wife duo. Wedding Planners at A Beautiful Theme.  Ashley,  the lead and creative director. Her husband Stephen, the amazing floral designer, along with their dynamic team who deliver the best Wedding Event services in the heart of Central Florida.  Let me show you a quick peek at some of their work.

Courtney took me for lunch at a wonderful place I’d been dying to try, Santiago’s Bodega. This quaint eatery specializes in Tapas. An amazing variety of small bites that you would normally get at an upscale restaurant. Inside, the atmosphere has what I consider to be an eclectic decor. Outside, the view reminds me of a Parisian bistro. We went a little crazy with the Tapas. Let me show you. Visit them at http://www.santiagosbodega.com

Urbain 40 American Brasserie And Lounge

The Dellagio Town Center  is located on Sand Lake Rd. The locals living in the Orlando area call this particular strip of road as “restaurant row”.  Restaurateurs of the culinary world have set up shop and are definitely here to stay. My daughter just recently came home for a visit and we decided to check out the restaurant called Urbain 40. We had an amazing dining experience. The atmosphere was elegant both in the restaurant and lounge. The lounge was set off to one side of the main dining area. The live music was a mix of blues and jazz which was a perfect in its paring of the lounge’s decor.

We started out with the Tuna Carpaccio.  For our entree, we each had a burger, topped with their bacon made in-house. If I had to describe the meal, the words would be, life changing! They took the hamburger to the next level and beyond. If you are a lover of great wines then you will be pleased.

Here’s a peek into Urbain 40 American Brasserie.

Disney Springs, Orlando


Growing up in Orlando, Disney World was a big part of my life. Visiting the parks during my childhood gave me memories that will stay with me forever. Having a daughter and being able to make more magical memories, at the happiest place on earth,  I will cherish forever.

Watching Disney World grow over the years has been amazing. I can remember when Disney Spring was called Downtown Disney.  The recently remodeled huge 24 theater Disney Cineplex is still on the property

Then there was Pleasure Island.  Pleasure Island was a place where the “night life” came alive. Adults could visit an eclectic string of nightclubs and restaurants. They were know for their New Years Eve parties.

There was also a theme restaurant that was designed in the shape of a huge earth like sphere called Planet Hollywood. The restaurant was inside the sphere and decorated with everything Hollywood. There also was a gift shop below where you could buy Hollywood memorabilia.

Just like all the parks, Disney is always looking for ways to improve and update all their other properties. Disney Springs is just another example of how they just keep surprising us. The scenery  as you walk through Disney Spring will take your breath away.  The pictures that I posted above is where the original parking lot was for Downtown Disney. For convenience, there are two large parking garages known as Orange and Lime.

Now, let me take you deep inside the springs for a peek at some new restaurants, bars, and shops that make up Disney Springs.
