Bed rest = Disney planning

I spent almost 12 hours in the emergency room yesterday to treat a scary bout of bronchitis which has landed me with a few days of bed rest.

Being sick, sucks, but it gives me a few guilt free days of Disney planning!

I have a trip planned for September so now I planning a big birthday bash for my 30th in 2012.

What are some of your extra special "must dos" for something like this? I'm hoping that some friends and family might come but I'm not sure that will happen. Group ideas and couples ideas are welcome!

My mother passed away

It breaks my heart to tell you all, but my mother passed away early Wednesday morning. Her long, hard, painful battle with cancer is over and she is now at peace.

My mother introduced me to all things Disney and I am not sure how I will ever be able to return to Disney World without crying. I hope the good memories of my childhood trips with my mom will keep me strong and will bring some added meaning to my future trips.

My mom was the bravest, strongest, person I have ever known. I doubt I will ever meet another who's courage could match hers.

She was my very best friend. My mommy. I find comfort in the knowledge that if I am in this kind of pain, it means she no longer is.

Go hug your children and your mothers.

This photo was taken on her birthday this past March in Downtown Disney. I think it's the last photo ever taken of us together. I'm so glad we did that trip.
