A Hungry Teenager’s Perspective on Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival: a Disney Foodie in the Making

Okay, so I am taking a quick detour from my “Best of the Best” series to share a portion of a recent trip I took with my mother to Walt Disney World .  Bear with me ~ this one is going to be “delicious. ”  As an aspiring Disney Foodie, I have had two major bucket list goals (as my mother likes to refers to them): to attend the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival AND to attend the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.   I was finally able to cross one of these off my list as we recently traveled to Walt Disney World to explore Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival.   Continue reading A Hungry Teenager’s Perspective on Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival: a Disney Foodie in the Making

The Invite, The App and The Rock Star: My Amazing Trip to NYC

When I finally sat down to document my recent experience in New York City, I realized that there were so many different angles from which I could have come in writing this piece.   The trip to New York City itself was quite an adventure and the people I met while there were absolutely amazing and inspiring.  I knew I obviously wanted to write about this fantabulous (yes, that’s a word!) new storybook app that was promoted at the social media event I attended…..but then there was just the simple fact that I met the Godfather of Shock Rock and Rock ‘n Roll Hall of fame inductee, Alice Cooper!   See my dilemma?

Date with Broadway: A Review of Aladdin: The Hit Broadway Musical

Fasten your seat-belts!  We are about to take a Magic Carpet ride to Agrabah – I mean, Broadway!  

One of my favorite types of dates with my husband is one that involves a trip into New York City to see a spectacular show.   There are so many on my proverbial bucket list to see, but Disney’s Aladdin: The Hit Broadway Musical has been at the top of the list for what seems like forever.  So, imagine the surprise when I opened my last gift at Christmas to find an ornament of the world-renowned Genie.  This was my husband’s creative way of saying, “You’re going to see Aladdin!!” Continue reading Date with Broadway: A Review of Aladdin: The Hit Broadway Musical
