I am heading to out to Anaheim, CA on Sunday morning for CHA, so there is a lot to get done! I am doing triple-duty on this trip...I am a sales rep for some incredible sb companies, so I have customers and manufacturers to meet with, I am co-founder and author for Scrapbook Dimensions Magazine in search of new articles and inspiration, and now I'm an aspiring author promoting a new book idea! Whew! All that and Disneyland will be taunting me from across the street! LOL!
For those that don't know me, I am a Disney Freak! I love everything Disney!! What child doesn't love what Disney represents? But I love Disney even more as an adult. I love their meticulous eye for detail, their endless imagination, and their belief that the world should be seen from a child's eye level.
I never tire from walking through the Disney gates. That rush of joy I feel when I set foot on Main Street. I actually get giddy! I have walked through Disneyland as a child with my parents, as a new bride on my honeymoon, and as a mom with my own kids. My most favorite time there, however, was walking through as an adult with my best girlfriend. I saw Disney for the first time in a more relaxed way. Never before had I simply sat on one of those perfectly clean park benches and just observed. Soaking up the sunshine, with the smells of sugar and flowers swirling through the air, life seemed so tranquil. I saw things I hadn't noticed on my previous trips. It was incredible!
So for those heading out to the big show this week...take a little time to walk through Disneyland with new eyes. Appreciate the little things you may have missed before. Feel the joy!
