Welcome to those of you joining me from The Many Adventures of a Disney-Lovin’ Spectrum Mom and those of you who have just hopped aboard. I am the Final stop on our Magical Blogorail loop. This week, members of Magical Blogorail Teal are introducing ourselves, our blogs, and what inspired us to start a Disney blog!
When asked to write a about myself and what inspired my blog, the first thing I think of is what Jiminy Cricket says at the beginning of ‘Wishes’….
“Like a bolt out of the blue, fate steps in and sees you through.
When you wish upon a star, your dreams…come true.
My journey here was one of magical surprises. It all goes back to a fateful post on a discussion board back in 2006. I had come to a point in my life where I needed a change. So I decided to plan a solo trip to Walt Disney World but was nervous about going alone.
I asked a question about what to do by yourself and a message came back assuring me everything would be ok. That message came from a man in upstate New York who I met just four months later at Walt Disney World for Spring Training.
Eight more months pass by and one night in December, right before Wishes in the Rose Garden in front of the Swan Boat Dock, that same man proposed and I said yes.
I had always be drawn to Disney, but from that moment on Disney became an integral part of our new lives together.
We bought DVC, purchased annual passes, and made sure to visit at least twice a year. We even honeymooned there, had out first anniversary there, and may have even brought home a little ‘souvenir’ we call John.
