As a native Texan, I'm proud to say that my friends and family see evidence of Southern generosity in my party planning and career choices. Having majored in Hospitality Management, I had the unforgettable opportunity to participate in the Walt Disney World College Program. I worked in restaurants, hotels, and retail before taking on the most rewarding job: that of mother. I still consider myself "in the business" as I am the General Manager, Executive Chef and Customer Service Specialist serving daily smiles and "glad games" to those I love. Additionally, I actively volunteer my heart and time to school, church and craniofacial charities. When I can find time among my busy mom-taxi schedule, I have recently taken up running (I recently completed my first runDisney endurance race, the 2014 Princess Half Marathon) and I enjoy blogging about my children so that my long-distance family can keep up with our daily comings and goings!
About My Family
My Prince Charming is hard-working, supportive and became a Disney foodie during our honeymoon in Walt Disney World. My oldest son, 10 years old, is quiet and cautious but his hugs and smiles come without request. My spunky Princess, 7 years old, has a heart and dreams without end. Our little monkey, 3 years old, has been through a lot in his tiny life, being born with a craniofacial defect. However, despite the medical and surgical trials, he keeps moving forward with a spirit and smile that never ends. With Pixie-Dusted hearts and wonder-filled eyes, my family and faith are the strong foundation of my life. Each year, they ask when we are going to Walt Disney World again. It warms my heart to know that they have grown to love this magical place as much as I do.
About My Disney Experience
My love for all things Disney began at a very young age. My first time to Walt Disney World was at the age of 7, when my family took a cross country trip with another family in an RV. It was an adventure that would change my life forever. I traveled there several times in my adolescence. I then worked for the Walt Disney World College Program. Several years later, my then-fiance and I planned our fairy tale honeymoon. He was a bit hesitant to commit to the idea, but after some convincing from me, we did it. Since then, he loves it and his favorite part is the expansive choices and options for dining! As a mother, my love for Disney has grown exponentially as it is even more exciting to experience it through their eyes! I thoroughly enjoy sharing this passion with friends and family planning their trips to the Disney Parks. I hope to hear from y'all soon. I'd love to help out and answer your questions!
