    Staying at Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort

    Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort is charming, beautiful, and filled with all the magic of a Disney resort. This resort is one of two Disney Vacation Club Resorts that are not actually located at the Disney parks (with the other one being Disney’s Vero Beach Resort). While it is an official Disney Vacation Club Resort, anyone can stay on this property! I am not a DVC member, and my friends and I were able to book a stay here for a weekend in May. My friend called ahead to see when rooms would be available and whether we would be able to stay there as non-DVC members. While this resort…

  • Disneyland: Where the Dream Began- Do as Dreamers Do

    Disneyland: Where the Dream Began

    After growing up in Walt Disney World and learning all the facts about Walt Disney himself, I was so excited to plan a trip to Disneyland as a part of our honeymoon! We spent about 2 and a half days at Disneyland exploring both parks and the Downtown Disney area! I’m here to share with you what I loved about Disneyland (and what I didn’t) and some of our favorite things from the trip. This was my first ever trip to Disneyland. I had some decently high expectations, and I was told many times to not expect much of it compared to Disney World. While my heart will always be…

  • My Disney World Bucket List

    My Disney Bucket List

    I believe every Disney fan should have their own personalized Disney Bucket List! These include all the experiences I have not experienced yet at the Disney Parks or ones I have not done since I was a young child. Hopefully this list inspires you to make your own Disney Bucket List!     All of the Disney World parks in one day I have seen several people complete this, and it is definitely a must on my list! Trying to deal with transportation while also getting in a few rides at each park would be the challenge with this one. Participate in a runDisney race I am ready to check…

  • When God has a Different Plan

    When God has a Different Plan

    Senior year of college. Last semester. You have this entire plan laid out for how you would like the next couple months to go (or maybe you don’t even know where to begin). This is where I found myself (and where all of my friends were as well) earlier this year. God had set something on my heart, yet it seemed as though that plan was not working out the way it should. Would God really bring me this far to have me fail? That answer for me, at the time, was no, but the honest answer is that it could be yes. And not fail in that you have…

    Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018

    One of many firsts on our recent trip to Walt Disney World included being able to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! I hope to share with you my experience and all the tips/tricks you need to navigate through this special event at the Magic Kingdom!    Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in 2018 ran from August 17th of this year and will continue on through Halloween night on October 31st! It’s a special ticketed event (extra money) that occurs after dark in the Magic Kingdom. Ticket costs range from $75-125 per person, but this amount will depend on what day you end up going and whether it…

  • Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

    Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2018

    My first time ever experiencing the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, and I am still speechless! I have not been to Epcot in 3+ years, so getting to feel all the nostalgia of walking around the World Showcase, while getting to try food and drinks from the countries that inspired the park was just incredible. In this post I am going to include why I loved Epcot International Food & Wine Festival (and think it should be a must on everyone’s vacation list for the Fall) and some of our favorite dishes we were able to try! So this year Epcot International Food & Wine Festival ran from August…

    Hotel Wailea: The Place of Dreams

    For our honeymoon, Nathan and I knew we wanted to go somewhere relaxing, beautiful, and peaceful. Nathan has visited Hawaii many times, and his favorite island has always been Maui. His family vacationed again to Hawaii several years ago while we were dating, and Nathan promised he would take me as soon as he could! So Hawaii was always at the top of our list for honeymoon destinations. We chose Maui, and specifically the Wailea area, in hopes for a beautiful landscape and tranquil atmosphere. When we researched resorts in the Wailea area, we ended up picking Hotel Wailea for its spectacular reviews and the fact it is an adults…

    Coffee Shop Dreamin’…And a Visit to O’o Farm

        My real motivation behind this blog was to share my dreams with the world, but *especially* with my friends and family. I have so many things I aspire to do in my life, and I want to be able to write them out and look back on these posts in years to come to see what God has brought into fruition. That being said, I wanted to share a dream Nathan and I have that has only grown stronger as a married couple now… Nathan and I are big lovers of coffee. One, because caffeine is important and necessary and I would not have made it through nursing…

  • What Disney Means to Me

    What Disney Means to Me

    Growing up, my family always visited Orlando for one week every year over the summer. That being said I grew up in the Disney World parks. It was a part of my childhood, and has become a part of who I am today. As a child, the night before leaving for Disney World always brought on butterflies and excited jitters. I would often stay up late that night, dreaming about the magical world that is Disney. Flashing forward to middle school, the parks began to become the same old thing. The long, hot days coupled with the same rides every year at Disney caused my family to take a couple…

    Our Sustainer

    “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of Majesty in heaven.” -Hebrews 1:3 A common theme seen throughout the book of Hebrews: He is Greater. He is greater than Moses, Elijah, and all the prophets that came before him. He is greater than Abraham and Isaac, than John the Baptist. But not only is He greater than people, individuals, He is greater than things in our life: He is greater than all our fears, worries, and doubts. He is greater than…
