Daddy’s Movie Day with the Fox and The Hound 1 & 2
The Fox and the Hound has been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. When the 2-Movie Collection came, I couldn’t wait to share it with my favorite movie buddy because I was her age when I first saw it myself.
Once my Zoe and I began watching the original in the late afternoon, we didn’t move until hours later when both movies and a great deal of the bonus material had been played. Both feature a wonderful story of friendship, amazing animation and voice talent.
As with all of my classic Disney favorites, the best part is sharing a piece of my childhood with my little princess.

A look into the Indian Culture with Three Fun Movies!
One of the great things about living around Walt Disney World is that we are never lacking for visitors and house guests. Recently we hosted some friends who had recently spent a number of months working in India. They told us stories about their first hand experiences within the culture including India’s vast film industry.
Ironically enough, Disney’s first set of Indian films for North America came to the house the same week. It was great to watch the trio of films, and get insight into another culture with people who had firsthand experience and insight.
Although it was a different experience from what we were used to, the films were quite enjoyable and easy to follow despite the subtitles. We really enjoyed sharing this look into foreign films with friends, and it is something we would definitely do again!!!

Wordless Wednesday – August 3, 2011
Good morning gang!
I know that I have been super absent from posting for the summer, but it has been one heck of a ride that has been filled with a lot of personal loss, great gains, change, and growth.
One thing that I realized along the way was that my priorities were WAYYYYY out of whack. While I started this blog to talk about my adventures and observations, I got caught up in the game. The events that I got invited to had gotten to be more important than the people that I was with and the experience itself.
I absolutely have enjoyed and cherished my experiences thus far, but as I look back on my almost first full year in Florida it is time to make some changes around here. It is time to get back to going to the parks, looking at the details that make me smile like a kid, and being in the moment.
Will I still go to events and do reviews? Sure, but it will be with a more discerning eye and lighter heart. Living in Celebration and having the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World so often is truly a blessing, and I don’t want to forget that for one moment.
Thank you so much for letting me share my feeling with you this morning. I hope that you will continue to join me on my adventures and continue to share yours with me!
