With the exception of #3, in varying degrees, all of the above could apply to me at one time or another, vis a vis, this blog. (Yeah, I just used vis a vis in a sentence – you should be impressed.)
When I made the decision to start fresh with a new blog, I thought long and hard about what to name it and what it would look like. In the end, three facts rose to the top and basically made my decision for me. The fact that my best friend’s son (who is also my son’s best friend) calls me Lala, is key. The fact that Disneyland and I have shared a long and satisfying relationship, and are roughly the same age is another contributing factor, and the inspiration for the header design. But the fact that my initials really and truly are L A clinched it for me.
The next couple of posts will be some backstory on me, and an introduction to the cast of characters who I am lucky enough to spend my days with, and who’s antics and thoughts provide me with the stories you will read here.
Welcome to my own little corner of the world. Relax, zone out, leave a comment if you’d like, and remember, you’re welcome any time!
