I’m grateful to be a part of a culture that changes lives every day. #gratitudeismyattitude
Because I said “Yes” to an amazing opportunity, I get to have freedom to travel and be there for the important times. #truelife
I don’t worry about making up hours at work or stressing about the income I “missed out on” while traveling. The power of residual income is real and it’s changed my life. 💯
So here I am on family vacation in the happiest place on earth living my best life with my amazing crew 🙏🏻 #fam

I took this image exactly one year ago today. I was alone in Orlando for a business trip, had some time to kill and some unused days on my Disney pass, so obviously I went on a photo adventure. At the time I had taken this picture, unknown to me, my life had been altered forever.
Shortly after taking this image I received a text from my babysitter telling me that my daughter's father was an hour late and she hadn't been in touch with him. Me, being the frustrated ex sent several grumpy texts saying things like "you better pay her extra for this". Another couple hours, many progressively angry texts and phone calls later neither myself or the sitter had heard from him. I assumed he was napping and that I'd wake up in the morning to several apologetic text messages assurig me he'd never do such a thing again. .
But when I woke up, there was nothing. No texts, no calls. This was atypical. My gut told me something was wrong. I started contacting everyone I could think of. Not long after, I got the call that brought everything crashing down. He had hung himself the day before. .
I wish he had talked to somebody. Anybody. Me.
Maybe then things would have been different. Maybe my daughter would be able to grow up with a father. But he didn't. If you're hurting, don't be like him. Talk to somebody. Anybody. Me. ♥️ .

Happy Thunder Mountain Tuesday. It’s a thing. Just ask @thedisneymd
. Hope everyone is having a great day!
A nice little #TimeLapseTuesday
from the upstairs of Columbia Harbour House! A great place to relax and people watch. Most days, like the day I filmed this, it is so empty upstairs they rope it off. Suddenly I had the entire upstairs to myself like a VIP! What's some of your favorite quiet places in the parks?
Obsessed with the summer sky 🌌
So as we sit here on our last evening drinking beer and sipping wine from plastic cups we have been reflecting and reminiscing our trip. We have all chosen a favourite photo (which was very difficult). Oddly enough, even though the past three days have been stressful, all three of the pictures chosen have been taken in the last three days!
France has been awesome and travelling in the van has made it an unforgettable experience. By tomorrow night we will have spent a total of 16 nights away. Apprehension about spending that amount of time in a small space was unfounded. Yes, there have been occasions where we have become frustrated but, in all honesty, we would happily continue for another 16 nights. A couple of people have commended me on my honesty throughout this trip and sharing the bad (although we didn’t have many of those experiences) as well as the good. I felt that all experiences were necessary to share as often life within these little square boxes can seem too good to be true. Not everything is perfection but travelling in a van comes pretty close 👌
There are a few things we would do differently (I’m thinking of setting up a proper blog where I’ll talk about these). But the main thing for me would be to be more organised or prep Eli more for a big city. After all he is a free range child and loves being able to run free; something that can be tricky in a big city. Also we are missing our pooch and although we’d love to stay longer, we can’t wait to get back and see him 🐶
Here are the reasons behind our picture choices... Picture 1 (top right)... my photo... for me it had to be a Disney photo! I chose this because it shows all 3 of us having an amazing time! We discovered Eli’s inner daredevil and can not wait to share more experiences like this!
Picture 2 (middle)... Martin’s photo. He has chosen this picture as it shows all 3 of us in one of his favourite places in the world.
Picture 3 (bottom left)... Eli’s photo. We cheated a little as he’s asleep but he’s not stopped talking about Disney or Micky Mouse since so we anticipate this is one of his favourite. For someone who new very little about Disney before, I think we turned him ☺️
