May 3, 2011

Walt Disney once said - "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."

May 3, 2010 was the day we embarked as "Disneyland Resort in HDR" and you'll find that date at the bottom of our E-Ticket sidebar. Over the past year, Kevin, Michaela and myself have been pursuing our dreams and you all have been kind and gracious enough to join us and support us. We cannot begin to express how much that means to us. It's truly a special thing to be able to share your dreams with others and have them encourage you. And while it's hard to believe that it's already been a year, it feels as though it's always been. I imagine that to mean we're headed in the right direction. It's the same way I feel about Michaela and about God. I can't seem to recall my life before their presence in it.

So instead of sharing a new picture tonight, I wanted to share something to commemorate our "birthday", if you will. This is a photo mosaic with every picture we have published in the last year, presented as the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle. I made it with a really neat program called AndreaMosaic that you should check out if you're into this sort of thing. I hope you enjoy it and we all hope that we have been a source of joy and inspiration to all of you the way you have to us. We have a lot more tours in store for this year and a few surprises!
