I know my pictures aren't top quality to begin with, but these almost didn't make it to the blog. They were a lot darker before editing them as I took them after I got home from work and it was already getting dark. That's what I get for being in a rush and not taking them in the morning when there's more light.

Help a child's Disney dream come true!

So as many of you know, I'm a fully trained Disney travel agent. Now there are a lot of options out there as far as planning your Disney vacation, but I want to share with you how if you let me be your Disney vacation planner, you in turn can help a child have their own Disney dream come true.

Make A Wish Dream Team Project

I have been a friend of podcaster Lou Mongello for several years and have been a fan of his books and podcast for even longer. Several years ago Lou created the WDW Radio Dream team to help raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, specifically to grant the wishes of ill children who want to go to Walt Disney World. Since the Dream Team was founded, multiple children have had their wish granted with Lou lucky enough to meet some of the families. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is an amazing organization and visiting Walt Disney World is something that every child should get the chance to experience.

So how do you fit in? Easy, with every Disney trip you book and complete with me, I will donate a portion of my commission to the Dream Team. And the best part? It won't cost you anything! All of my work as your Disney travel agent doesn't cost you a single cent, so you get to take your dream vacation knowing that you are helping an ill child take their dream trip too! So remember the next time you decide to take your family on a Disney vacation, your trip could change another child's life.

So you may have noticed, I chopped my hair off! (And if you don't you aren't alone. My husband came home the evening I got it cut, and commented on the t-shirt I was wearing at the time before he noticed my hair. Same thing goes for the family we saw over the weekend. SMH) I've actually been considering it for several weeks, but was holding off because I just got a trim. But I couldn't take it anymore and did it. My hair is super thick and unmanageable, it was terrible. This is much easier, just wash and go!

Everyday I'm shuffling....

Keep calm and moving on

So you may or may not have noticed a few changes on the blog recently. Up at the top of the blog, below the header, you may see a link for Magical Voyages: Living the Disney Life. I had started another blog for all things Disney and my Disney travel agent stuff, but I've found that managing that blog on top of this one, along with all the other irons I have in the fire (like my YouTube channel, Facebook, plus everything involved with the podcast) was just too much. I have friends who blog and operate multiple blogs, and I'm super proud that they can accomplish that. More power to them! But it's just not feasible for me.

So I'm working on moving as much from Magical Voyages as I can over to here, and now Magical Voyages is no longer available for viewing. Don't worry, I'm still going to post Disney stuff, and will still be happy to help folks plan their Disney vacations, it's just now all going to be under the umbrella of Styles and Smarts.
