I think at the end of every year, it’s easy to look back at what has transpired and be really unhappy with how it all went down. We make resolutions and vow to be better. We say that this year will be different. While 2016 had its ups and downs and certainly had a very tough end, I happen to think that it wasn’t all bad. Looking back, it was actually pretty awesome.
I started off the year by releasing my second book…during a blizzard! It was actually pretty amazing and I can’t think of a better way to kick off a new year.
In February, we took my Mom to Disney World for the very first time, which also meant that WE got to go back to Disney.
We watched a LOT of Disney movies this year. Like Zootopia…
AND The Jungle Book.
We played a lot of board games. And we used them as a good reason to eat our friends with squids.
We finished up the project that started this blog, Vault Disney.
And then we did a little project called Vault Pixar.
And then we started Vault Ghibli, which I promise we will finish in the new year.
And of course, a little game called Disney Magic Kingdoms came out. This is how I got to know many of you and it has sure eaten a lot of our time, but man has it been a blast.
I started writing The Kingdom, which has turned into one of my favorite projects on the blog. Again, more is coming in the new year! I promise!!!
And Elena of Avalor released, giving me a reason to fan girl every few weeks.
We can’t forget about one of my favorite game releases of the year, Disney Magical World 2, which ate even more of my time and still does eat my time very often.
And from a book release, to lots of fun and games, the love of my life and I ended our year by getting married and doing it Disney style.
So yeah, 2016 was not all bad. In fact, we had a ton of fun and seeing as how we are moving to Orlando in a couple weeks, something tells me a new set of adventures are right around the corner. Thank you for sticking around and I can’t wait to share the next step with you. Have a safe and Happy New Year and do me a favor. Tell me the most amazing thing that happened to you this year in the comments section. Share love, not grief. That is my motto, or at least I’ll make it my resolution, and as they say in Zootopia, Change Starts with You!
Happy New Year!!!
