Things that make me happy: Sunshine, Shopping and Food

I just got back from a short little vacation down to Orlando for the Food and Wine Festival at EPCOT. We stayed at at Hyatt Grand Cypress, which was beautiful and very relaxing. The walls in my bedroom were a really rich green, which I surprisingly liked. I would definitely consider it for a guest room or office. I had SO much fun at EPCOT. I tried so many tasty foods from the many country kiosks: fried dumplings from China; bacon, cheddar cheese and beer soup from Canada; boxty with bacon chips from Ireland; chevre and sundried tomato quiche from France; perogies from Poland and finally Gloria Ferrar 1997 Carneros Cuvée. If you find yourself in the Orlando area, it is quite a good time! I am also very impressed by EPCOT shopping. The Japan store is one of my all time favorite places in EPCOT. My mother, who spent quite a lot of time in Tokyo, thinks it is one of the best selections of Japanese goodies outside Japan. I purchased several treats for myself, I'll post pictures after my camera finishes charging!
