Wordless Wednesday – Thanks, Walt

This week’s Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop, hosted by Focused on the Magic, is a tribute to Thanksgiving and all the Disney things we’re thankful for.  During this week of giving thanks, I couldn’t think of any single Disney thing I was more thankful for than Walt Disney himself and his vision and imagination that have [...]

Wordless Wednesday – One Man’s Dream

Thanks, once again, to Deb at Focused on the Magic for hosting this week’s Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop!  This week’s theme is especially close to my heart, as it recalls the very essence of Disney Magic… Walt Disney and his dream for family entertainment and Disneyland.  I snapped both of these shots during my [...]

Walt Disney once said, about making his animated features that, “for every laugh there should be a tear.” It’s funny because life is like that too sometimes… for every laugh there is a tear. I think I’ve been in the tear phase of my life. Four months ago, I walked into work. Eight hours later, [...]

Feed the Birds…

I’ve found in writing these posts that there are so many small Disney moments that mean so much to me. When you put them all together they truly add up to the Disney experience that is so close to my heart. Last April when I was visiting the Disneyland Resort, one morning breakfast was dedicated [...]
