Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I had such an awesome day today! I took my sister down to Epcot where we met up with one of my favorite teachers and her family!
First of all, it was awesome to spend the day catching up with a teacher who has helped me so much in the past and with whom I have worked so closely before. I met her daughter and grandson a few times in the past, but today was the first time that I really got to spend a lot of time with them, so that was really great too. I mean, what better way to get to know someone than by spending time at Disney together?
It was also really nice to spend time with my sister away from the rest of the family. It was really strange at first, being at Disney without the entire family being there, but we really enjoyed the time together. After our three park companions left at the end of the day, my sister and I even stayed and did another ride and some more walking around together.
What was also cool about today was that it was my first time going to Epcot during the Flower and Garden Festival. I've never been to Epcot in the spring before, so it was amazing to see so many beautiful garden pieces throughout the park. There are stunning topiaries in the image of characters, and there are such vibrant flowers planted throughout Epcot (some in the shape of "hidden" Mickeys). On top of that, we also went into the aquarium viewing area and saw some amazing sea creatures up close and personal. You don't realize how large a sea turtle is until you find yourself face to face with one!
Today was one of those days where I accomplished absolutely nothing professionally, but personally had a spectacular day. I think that going to Epcot today was well worth the lack of writing. I can struggle with writer's block another day. In the meantime, don't forget to vote in my poll from yesterday to help impact my new children's book!
Your continued support means the world to me. From foster care to novels, and family to work experiences, I look forward to sharing more of my life with you each day. Don't hesitate to share your own stories with me or ask me questions about my life. Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
