Whoa! I honestly cannot believe it’s been one year of This Happy Place Blog. If possible, it feels like it hasn’t been that long and it’s been forever at the same time. To celebrate, I recorded a little video:
Here’s a list of those lovely people I mentioned:
» Michelle, THP Co-Founder: go find her here & here.
» Adam & Andrew, Disney Hipsters.
» Sarah, Running at Disney.
» Melissa, Mouse on the Mind.
» Jeff, MiceChat & upcoming author of It’s Kind of a Cute Story (memoir of former Imagineer, Rolly Crump.)
» Rachel (find her here & here) and Magan (find her here here and here.)
» Amanda (@FuturePixarian) & Q (@Q_GS)
Last but not least: My non-Disney friends who read THP just to read it… seriously, that makes my day. James, my wonderfully supportive husband, who has really taken to the whole “Disney thing” in the best way possible… as in, he is equally obsessed and I love him for it. (Plus he never complains about me taking time to write, in fact he encourages it.) And my dad, who is my most loyal reader (and did pay for all of those early trips that inspired me to start writing this in the first place).
And I also wanted to mark this occasion with a giveaway. I’m a huge book lover and there are just so many Disney books coming out this fall that I’m looking forward to. Hence, my decision to pre-order a copy of Poster Art of the Disney Parks for a lucky winner. I know if a blog was doing this giveaway I would have to enter! I’ve made it easy! Just leave a blog comment, and there are a few bonus entries too. (For those in the U.S. only. Thx!) Good luck!
Thank you, friend and reader, for taking the time to check out the blog today and another other day you do. I really appreciate it and I hope that I can bring you more fun/distraction in the future!
