If you have only just stumbled across my blog in this moment, then you may be forgiven for not knowing that I’m going to Florida soon. However if you’ve followed me for sometime and you didn’t know – well then you must have been hiding under a rock, especially for the last 80 days.
In January 2014, my mum informed us that she would be taking us to Florida in April 2015. To say I was excited is somewhat of an understatement, but compared to how I feel now – it doesn’t even compare! Ever since finding out, we have been gradually saving and planning, counting down the months and eventually the days. At the four month mark (120 days) we started a Disney Countdown, which I update about on my blog weekly. The basic concept is a Disney themed task every day, till the day we go on holiday. The kids love it and while sometimes it can be a chore, it was a great idea to get us enthused and an even better way to keep track of how many days there are left. Today marks Day 40 on the countdown and as such I wanted to start some sort of official Florida planning series on my blog, which hopefully I will be making weekly till we go.
While I haven’t fully planned what my posts will cover yet, they will include the dresses I have made for the girls, the shopping we have done, the packing we will be doing and any specific plans we have made. With only just over 5 weeks left to go, it won’t be a big series but hopefully it will document some of planning and preparations. I’m sure when we get back I’ll have nothing but Florida posts to make, so it will be great to have some before and after posts.
As you may have seen, April will be Disney month on my blog and I am looking for people to write guest posts for while I’m away. I have no restrictions on what you can and can’t write (though family friendly of course) but the theme must be Disney! Whether you want to write about your favourite movies, your last trip to a Disney resort or your perfect dream Disney wedding – anything goes. If you’re interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know! Until then, keep an eye out for my Florida series starting next week!
