So you have probably been wondering why we have been M.I.A. the last couple weeks. Well you know how life likes to throw you fun little challenges from time to time? I guess we were due. Our washing machine decided to completely malfunction and start leaking water all over the laundry room floor. And then under the floor. And then continue into the next room. When we stepped on the floor planks and saw water bubbling up between all we could think was "Oh boy..."Read More

We had so much fun earlier this year at our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration and have loved sharing the pictures and the planning ideas with our readers. This week we were excited to find out that our story was getting a two day feature on This Fairy Tale Life. We hope that other Disney loving couples will be able to pick up some inspiration and ideas from our alternative Vow Renewal event. You can check out both articles here:
On our latest trip to Hawaii we carefully crafted an itinerary that would balance a range of activities and sightseeing around Oahu, mixed with plenty of time to just relax and enjoy Disney's Aulani Resort.

We flew over snow covered ground to the mountains of Western Maryland, where we picked our first passenger...Read More
We are always intrigued to see if a books translated into film is successful, it can be hard to accomplish. As children neither of us got around to reading "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeleine L’Engle but Julie vividly remembers the cover that featured a centaur and rainbow and was always curious about the story. The trailer certainly was intriguing with shots of beautiful other worldly settings and a story that looked a tad creepy with a clip of cookie cutter children in a Stepford Wives looking town. This week we were invited to a screening and these are our thoughts...Read More
After arriving at Honolulu International Airport we hopped in a Jeep Wrangler to drive approximately 30 minutes to the town of Ko'Olina. As we approached you could see a handful of resorts lined up along the ocean's edge. Aulani stuck out as the most beautiful and unique looking. We pulled up to an understated entry sign that led us up a drive lined with tropical plants to the main lobby doors. We were immediately greeted by a handful of cast members who were very welcoming. Read more about our anniversary vacation at Aulani including 10 tips for first timers!Read More
It may surprise some, but we actually don't make a big to-do about Valentine's Day. Now we do think celebrating love is super important but this holiday just gets a little low-key attention from us. And honestly we would rather save the money spent on a day like Valentine's Day and spend it on a Disney trip together. We both are romantics at heart and do love a good Disney love story so we couldn't help but dig up some links to Disney themed Valentine fun. Enjoy!Read More
