10 LESSONS I LEARNED FROM 2020

As 2020 comes to an end (finally), I have been reflecting on a lot of different things that have happened throughout the year. 2020 had a myriad of challenges, triumphs and surprises. Part of me feels like we are still in March back when everything shut down, and part of me is so ready to […]

TRUTH TALK | DOWNTOWN DISNEY RE-OPENING

Downtown Disney re-opened about three weeks ago. I did not go on opening day or week…I waited. Why?

AND SO IT BEGINS…
