I took a picture in this Mickey mask to tell a story.
My daughter’s Disney blog was supposed to launch first. Being the Disney girl that I am, I do my very best to pass all my Disneyness down to my offspring. You know, the responsible thing to do.
We had a whole trip to the parks planned and had designed a whole content schedule based off of being able to be at there …and then Covid. Trip cancelled. Now, while I have been to Disney World/Disneyland/Disneyland Paris many times, I don’t live near a park (I did live in Orlando, FL for two years but that’s a story for another day). So it’s not like I go to the park every day. YET the day they announced Disney was closing, I felt dread and it has just felt like something has been missing ever since.
At the same time that all of this was going on, I was trying to figure out what to do with this blog and how to make it all more authentic. I felt like every time I blogged it ended up turning into what every one else wanted to see. I just kept digging in my brain and talking to my business coach like, what is authentic to me??
Then it hit!!
It was Disney and all around nerdiness and creativity all along! *head slap* It is such an integral part of the fabric that makes up me and I was totally missing it! I felt so inspired and creative knowing that I could incorporate that great love into something I had been dying to do forever …and all of a sudden I knew the direction I wanted to go.
That is how this lifestyle Disney blog was born.
I think this revelation came at the perfect time. So much is going on in the world between the Covid outbreak and the very important, ongoing fight for black lives. It is bringing so many emotions (fear, sadness, anger) and I want this space to be a place of light and love.
I hope to bring a lot of fun and magic to all of you!
P.S. My daughter’s blog is still coming (we’re just revamping since it can’t be based around our park trip. You can follow her on Instagram @magic_withthemouse
