Let's Get Personal: About Me

I have a long blogging history, beginning 8 years ago while I was still in College with a little blog called The True Disney Fan. I enjoy writing and found this was a good way for me to get my thoughts and feelings out. It became rather successful as small blogs go, however it had to fall by the wayside as I began life on my own in Florida working for Walt Disney World. After my years there, I tried to come back to writing with a small blog called Any Adventure Goes (Sound familiar?), however life and working several jobs got in the way of that project.

Now that I have settled in my new area of Wilmington, North Carolina, I feel like I am able to devote time to one of my great passions once again! After discussing with a fellow travel agent about options for brining back a blog, she recommended I use the platform that I have here with my Travel Agent website. I already have an active blog ready to go here, plus it would give my guests a chance to get to know me better. So here I am, blogging for you once more. 

And what exactly will I blog about? Why, anything that I feel like to be honest! Yes,  I will have travel information, restaurant and area reviews and soon, posts on different travel discounts as they come up. In addition though I will have a commentary on a recipe I recently tried, a review of a book I read, a post about these new shoes that I got that I thought were super comfy because...well, why not? 

In my About Me section, you learned about why I wanted to start my travel agency, but who actually am I? Obviously I am a lover of travel and Disney, but here are some basic facts to give you an idea of what I may write about:
