I'm a wife and mother to two girls, but I am not a stay-at-home mom. I have a full time job. I like my work. It means I get a pay check that will allow me to visit Disneyland almost as often as I want. Well, almost.
I live exactly 400 miles away from Disneyland. I Googled it so I know it's true.
Back story...I only visited Disneyland 3 times as a kid (only 2 visits that I can remember) and then...nothing. My parents didn't take me back until I was almost out of high school and that's when the magic came back. I became fascinated with Walt Disney and every character, story, project he brought to life. Later in life, my engagement proposal took place at Disneyland and our honeymoon at Walt Disney World.
But the magic hit me harder when I took my oldest daughter on her first trip at 14 months old. I truly felt and saw the magic through her eyes and it was like a drug. I could not get enough of it. She's almost 8 now and still loves Disneyland.

I am not affiliated with Disneyland, the Walt Disney company or any of its affiliates and subsidiaries. Simply put, I'm a Disney fan and post to this blog as a personal hobby. I do not accept PR requests for product reviews or receive compensation in any way. Nothing personal. I just don't want to deal with tax paperwork at the end of the year. If I write a review of a product, hotel, restaurant, etc, it is my honest opinion. No one made me or asked me to do it. I do love working in collaboration with other bloggers, so if you'd like to discuss guest posts or other work, please do not hesitate to reach out.
All photos posted are taken by me unless otherwise noted. Please be respectful and do not post my photos or Photo Scavenger Hunts on your web site, blog or other usage. You can however link to the hunts from your blog.
The only materials posted for your personal use are the printable monthly Photo Scavenger Hunts. I create these documents on my own. They are intended for your personal enjoyment at Disneyland and California Adventure.

This is why I appear in 0.5% of my family photo albums. One day I will teach my husband how to use my camera.
