Disney Blog Hop: Shining a Spotlight

Welcome and thank you for joining me from the Disney Blog Hop hosted by Babes in Disneyland! I really enjoy linking up and reading all the other wonderful posts by some great bloggers! Don't forget to click back and check them all out!

This weeks theme is Shining a Spotlight! I think this is a wonderful theme and am so excited to be a part of it. When I first read the theme for this week and started thinking, I knew I wanted to do something special. I wanted to let the bloggers that have motivated me, helped me, and supported me know how wonderful they really are. Without the support of other bloggers, I am not sure I would have made it past my first month blogging.

There are two blogs who I have followed for a while and who have been a part of my process in blogging. I would like to shine a spotlight on them in my post this week and show them how thankful I am for their support!

A Disney Mom's Thoughts
Beth from A Disney Mom's Thoughts was one of the first Disney blogs that I started following and reading. She has such great ideas and tips. I just knew from her writing that she was an amazing person! Then, I found out she is from Alabama as well and that is even better - even if she is an Auburn fan :) I have learned so much from Beth from her comments and reading her posts. Another thing that I love about Beth is her obvious passion for God and the youth at her church. Her love and passion truly shine when she writes about them in her posts! Thank you Beth!

The first time I read DisneyBird's blog I instantly felt like I was reading words of a friend. I can tell that we have a lot in common and like a lot of the same things. Since Bird is a newcomer to the blog world, as I am, I felt drawn to her blog knowing she knew how I felt. I can always count on a comment from Bird and that makes me feel good to know that someone is always out there - reading what I write. I truly enjoy reading Bird's blog - she has such fantastic ideas and knows just how to word everything. Her blog has grown so much in the few months that I have been reading and it's wonderful to see! Thank you Bird!

I want to thank not only these two wonderful bloggers, but everyone in the Disney blogging community for your support! I am truly honored and glad to be a part of a group that is so wonderful, supportive and creative! Thank you all!!
