Join in my Dream Disney Scents Launch Party!

Here we are!  Today is the start of our Scentsy launch party for Dream Disney Scents!  As I mentioned yesterday, I am a new Scentsy Consultant, and I am looking forward to help you not only plan your dream Disney vacation, but to pair it up with some incredible Scentsy scents and warmers to remind you of that trip for years to come!  So let’s get this party started!  Are you looking for some great scents to freshen up your home, ones that you can use over and over again?  Scents that don’t burn because there is no candle to light?  Well, then you need to go check out my Scentsy website!  Dream Disney Scents is your place for all of that and more, and best of all, I’ve got a special page setup just for the launch party!  Just click on our launch party link to get started!

I’m giving you plenty of opportunity to look things over and order during this party!  With Valentine’s Day coming up, I’m keeping our launch party going until that day, February 14th, so take advantage of it all!  Let me know what questions, concerns, or comments you have, and thanks for stopping by today!

My Story

I have been a travel agent and blogger for several years; I started My Dreams of Disney, in September, 2010, as a way to document the memories of trips my family has taken to Walt Disney World (and now, Disneyland).  Then, in February, 2013, I became a travel agent with Pixie Vacations.

One of the things I am excited to do is to blend my ventures together; my belief is that we all have a special scent that will draw us in and remind us of a special time and place.  With my Scentsy site, Disney Dream Scents, I believe that I will be able to capture the best of both worlds — Disney and Scentsy — and marry them together so that they work together to enhance your vacation even more.

Picture this in your Mind’s Eye:  You have contacted me, and we have planned a great trip for you to stay at the Beach Club over the summer.  As part of my service and as a thank you to you, perhaps a special warmer is heading your way, with a bar of the Scentsy scent that reminds you of that special trip you took with your family.

Whether you are going to Disney or not, I’m here to help you.  Reach out to me, tell me your thoughts, and let’s work together to get that special scent to your house to take you to back to that memory you don’t want to ever forget!

What scent will you choose to pair with the resort you last stayed at?  Let me know in the comments below, click on our launch party link, and let’s get started on getting that scent in your hands!

Remember, Disney & Scentsy is a great combination!

Happy Birthday Sophie!

In this special post, we celebrate our daughter Sophie, who turns 14 on this day, with a special collection of photos from across the years.  It’s incredible to me to see our daughter over the years.  It really puts into perspective how fast our children grow up!  Sophie was born 7 weeks early, weighed just 4 pounds, 2 ounces, spent the first two weeks of her life in the NICU, but has never looked back!  Now she’s taller than her Mom, almost taller than me, starts high school in the fall!  Enjoy this look back in time as we get ready to explore the big blue world of High School!

Valentine's Day

Disney Valentine’s Day Suggestions!

Valentine's Day

Mickey & Minnie enjoying a ride on Dumbo — one thing we can do with our loved ones on Valentine’s Day!

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Riding the Rails post!  This series is hosted at the Magical Blogorail website, and I thank them for having this great series of posts.  This week we are talking about some things we can do around Valentine’s Day, so perhaps these posts will help you get some ideas on what you want to do with your special someone at Disney!  For starters, perhaps you will take a ride on Dumbo with your special someone, like Mickey & Minnie did back in 2010 in this photo!

Valentine's Day

Perhaps you want to take your loved one to World Showcase instead?

Another option you might want to consider is taking your loved one over to Epcot and stroll around the World Showcase.  Perhaps grab a drink, or a bite to eat, maybe take in a showing of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, and stroll leisurely around the world as you explore some of the things you don’t often see at Epcot!

Valentine's Day

Of course, if this is a special someone, you might do this…

Back at the Magic Kingdom, perhaps this is the time you consider doing this with your loved one, as happened to my niece in 2012!  She was not expecting it, and everyone started crying when Shane proposed.  It was a great moment in my life that I’ll remember forever.

Valentine's Day

You know, Valentine’s Day is sometimes a day for Dad’s and Daughters, or Mom’s and Sons.

Perhaps you are visiting the parks with your daughter, or perhaps your wife and you want to do something special for your daughter.  Well, why not treat her to a dance on the Biergarten dance floor.  This is a memory that I cherish, and I think Sophie does too — and I know that Cindy does!  Thank you Cindy for taking this picture.

Valentine's Day

Perhaps, though, you want a romantic getaway at the Grand Californian Hotel…

To this day, I think this is one of the funniest pictures I have ever seen in my resort room.  When we checked in, our room wasn’t ready, but they went through the check-in process with us, and even spoke with Sophie.  When we walked in and saw this decor on the bed, Cindy and I first thought we were in the room for a newlywed couple, but it really was our room!  We have no idea why they did that, but Sophie thought it was a hoot, and loved collecting all the rose pedals!

So there you have it, my friends.  Some suggestions on some things to do at Disney for Valentine’s Day.  Thank you for stopping by, now please take a moment and check out the rest of the entries!  Just click on the image below, and thanks!  Remember everyone to go out and make it a Disney Day!

Wordless Wednesday: Love is in the Air!

IMG_9980

 

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop entry!  My friend Deb from Focused on the Magic always does an outstanding job with this series, so it is a real treat to me to bring you some of my favorite photos.  This week the theme is appropriately named “Love is in the air” in honor of Valentine’s Day coming up on Thursday, so I thought I would share some of the photos that really captured what love is about — at least in that particular shot!

The first picture I’m sharing is of my daughter Sophie next to Mickey Mouse over at ‘Ohana when we had breakfast there.  The look on Sophie’s face says it all in my opinion — she loves her some Mickey!

Cinderella and Prince Charming

This next photo was taken in 2006 when Cinderella and Prince Charming celebrated their wedding vows in front of Cinderella Castle!

Pooh and Sophie

 

This next photo is of Sophie and Winnie the Pooh at the Crystal Palace.  The contentment on Sophie’s face is purely visible, and at that moment, there is no place she would rather be on God’s Green Earth!

After all of these photos, though, the one photo that sums it all up better then any other could is the one that I’m saving for last. It was June 11, 2012, at 12:52 AM, when my new nephew Shane proposed to my niece Stephanie in front of Cinderella Castle. Many words have been written about this magical evening, but in many ways, it is the picture itself that does all the talking!
