Happy New Year everyone. This year we’re thankful to have wrapped up a relatively peaceful year, which was a goal of ours after many years of nearly constant major life changes like I wrote about […]
This is it. The moment I’ve been training for. We’ve got one more FastPass+ to hit before our lunch reservation on the other side of Magic Kingdom. The hot Orlando sun beats down heavy. The […]
Hello Everyone, I have some personal updates for all of our friends and colleagues out there. First, Kelly and I are excited to announce that we have welcomed our fourth baby into the family. Baby […]
