Several items are mentioned below in this conference wrap-up. All thoughts and opinions are my own.)

Disney Luggage

Last year, I attended the 2012 Disney Social Media Moms Conference with my dear friend Jo-Lynne (who I will miss this year since she can’t make it – boohoo) and won the VIP Disney tour!

Disney Travel on The Hottest Image Curation Site for New Parents!

I am trying out, a new image curation site specifically geared towards new parents. You can “bump” items either on the site or around the Internet to create a collection.

Teaching a Digital Mom New Tricks with Traveling Moms, Disney and Chevy!

Gaston's Tavern at Disney Fantasyland

Ballooning with Stan Hess

Recently, I have been helping the US Hot Air Balloon Team, located in Southeastern, PA (just outside Philadelphia), with their social media and it comes with a few fringe benefits – like the occasional balloon ride media tour as you see below with the very talented Joey Fortman of Real Mom Media. Like the Facebook […]

Travel: What you will see as a Disney VIP

Whew, almost lost our friend Amy there.

  I was multi-tasking during this year’s Disney Social Media Moms Conference, thanks to the awesome Rayovac outlet centerpieces and despite the warning by the adorably hilarious Mary Ellen Hooper to turn off my cell phone, when somewhere off in the distance a voice broke through my conscious, halting my attempts to compose an semi-intelligent email on […]
