I have hopes of setting this blog apart from the others because I am well me. This is Disney through my eyes, two brown ones to be exact. Guess I should take the time to introduce myself. I am in my late thirties and have a career in the mental health field. I work with adults through The Department of Family and Children Services and children who have been abused and neglected. I enjoy my position and have been with the same agency for over 6 years. My role can be difficult and fulfilling all in the same day.
My love of Disney started at the age of 5 when my aunt took me and my cousin for the first time. Since then I have been several times, hundreds of time to be on the safe side. I go to Walt Disney World about 4 to 5 times a year for quick trips. I have been to Disneyland twice and took my first Disney cruise on the Dream this past March. I am a Charter member of D23, Disney’s Official Fan Club. I have attended several D23 events, including the D23 Expos held in 2009 and 2011 in Anaheim, Ca. Last but not least, I am currently a part-time Cast Member at The Disney Store. I worked on and off at 3 stores between 2003 and now. I just celebrated 3 consecutive years with The Disney Store this month.
I incorporate Disney into my life on a daily basis. Whether I am drinking coffee from a Mickey Mouse mug or taking notes on a legal pad with Mickey Mouse in the corner. This type of behavior makes it logical for me to “Be Counted” on The Disney Driven Life (DDL). I am Neurotic Disney Individual (NDI) #132. My tweets about collecting and shopping for Disney items lead to an invitation to be the DDL hopping Blogger, a position in which I was very flattered to take on.
I cannot wait for you to join me in my thoughts, on trips, and activities as how I view Disney “thru my brown eyes”.
