There is nothing better than to start the New Year with a bang! First stop...Chicago, where we spent time with college friends to bid goodbye to 2011 and welcome 2012. Then New Years day, we were off to Florida as we escape into the magical world of theme parks in Orlando's Walt Disney Resort and Universal Studios for three straight days...wheew! The last day of the trip was spent in beautiful Sarasota Florida...specially the Siesta Keys, where we were amazed with the powder sugar white sand beach. Then we head back to Chicago and spent another night with friends at Lincoln Karaoke, just before we went back to MI.
