“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” -Walt Disney
We got some pretty exciting news a few months ago…we are expecting…to have a great time at the Disney Social Media Mom Celebration!!;) I am so honored and thrilled to announce that I was invited to the exclusive mom conference at Disney World and Disney Sea in February.
For those of you not in the blogging world the Disney Social Media Mom Celebration is an invite only event that takes place once a year and is one of the most sought after gatherings in the social media world. The conference is three days on land at Disney World and three days at sea on board the Disney Dream Cruise Line sailing to Castaway Cay, their private island. As an influencer we will be going to private events geared to inspire and empower us in our blogging careers as well as family events meant to help us create magical memories. This was honestly something I had dreamed about going to once I started blogging, but had no idea my dreams would ever come true.
Once I found out the news and stopping crying with joy I called my hubby to tell him, but decided to keep the secret from our kids. I knew I wanted to come up with a creative way to share them the good news. So we decided to wait until Christmas to let them in on the secret about the trip and it became the big surprise gift.
We had them wait in our room while we set up a trail of Christmas lights all over the house. They had to follow the lights and at the end was a box filled with notes telling them about the vacation. Since they can’t really read yet we tried to keep it as simple as possible. So once they opened the box there were pieces of paper with the letters “U” “R” then an airplane for “flying” “2” then the Disney symbol with a globe for “Disney World” “and” a Mickey head with the Disney Cruise ship for “Disney Cruise.” I think it took a little bit for the news to really settle in, but the kids are so excited they can’t stop talking about it. Our son even asked to go to school the day after Christmas so he could tell all of his friends!;)
Needless to say I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and feeling so blessed to be starting this year with such an amazing opportunity. We are so excited to be taking this trip and creating memories to last us a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Disney Social Media Mom Celebration Team for inviting us to be a part of this amazing trip!Found out how we surprised our kids about attending the Disney Social Media Mom Celebration. #DisneySMMC #DisneyMom Click To Tweet
