“To all who come to this happy place: welcome.”
Originally launched in July of 2011, This Happy Place Blog began as a writing project spearheaded by Stelle and Michelle. Friends from college and looking to engage in a fun hobby, they decided to share their love & enthusiasm for writing and all things Disney on this very site. THPB was home to Muppet Mondays, Walt Wednesdays, features on Disney in NYC (where they resided), animation, childhood, and various trip reports from time spent in Walt Disney World.
From February 2012 until July 2015, Stelle ran THPB solo and continued to learn about the history of the Muppets while writing her Monday feature, focused on news about Disney Theatrical Productions, and infused many of her own interests (reading, fashion, shopping, etc.) into blog content. She also hosted several writing projects featuring awesome contributors from around the Disney community, and co-hosted a Kill Refurb Marry blog-a-long with Melissa from Mouse on the Mind.
As of April 2017, the site is back in action after a long hiatus. While updates won’t occur as frequently, Stelle will continue to share her love of Muppets, Disney traveling, Animal Kingdom and more in her writing, and also continue to celebrate the collection of work that has found a home in this very space.
