I am a Disney fan, I love all things Disney. My pets have all been named after Disney characters, my hubby even named 2. Examples are our mini doxies Chip & Cogsworth. My hubby & daughter are my pride & joy! I love to read, take photo's, scrapbook, exercise, walk by puppies, garden, watch or go to the movies & travel especially to Disney. I am enjoying my time writing for WDW Fan Zone! I co-host the Tiara Talk Show Podcast when I am not working if the schedule permits.
