The celebration continues...

What a wonderful day of conference sessions and guest speakers. Disney has gone so far for all of the attendees. I really thought that I would be able to be posting throughout the conference to keep everything "Live". However, I have been so overwhelmed by the people, the knowledge, the environment that it is indeed going to take a little time to get all of my thoughts together. I feel so blessed and honored to have been able to come down for this weekend. The experience is simply beyond anything I have ever had before.  I was walking back to my room last night and all of a sudden the castle was in front of my in the distance.  I stopped in my tracks and gasped, my eyes welled up with tears as I stood there in the dark, in the middle of the walk way in awe of the spires bathed in purple light.  It was so beautiful, and right outside my door.  Magic is around every corner at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.
Me and my party guru David Tutera

I've uploaded some more pictures from today to my flickr stream.  I hope that you've been watching the live shot out my window that's streaming on the website, because I have a pretty great marina view.  The Grand One is docked right below my balcony, and across the water the monorail goes by every 5 minutes or so.  I smile every time I see it, no kidding.

Here are a couple of my favorite moments so far, like getting a hug from Party Guru David Tutera.  Disney Weddings put on THE most amazing event for us last night.  Getting married at Disney is no joke, these brides get the very best of everything and they are truly Princesses.  Easy Button?  No way...  Just calling in the Fairy Godmother so that you can spend your wedding day doing nothing but being a Bride and having the time of your life in your special moment.  As David said "Dreams come true here every day."

Ashley, Traci and I
Hanging out with Twitter / Blogger buds like Traci and Ashley has been phenomenal.  I talk to Ashley almost every morning, and this was the first time we've met.  How cool is that!  I have meet so many of the nicest people, there is more talent in this crowd than you can imagine.  I ate lunch at the same table as Lou Mongello... seriously...Lou!  Oh... and the food, the food has been culinary bliss.

Right now I have a few hours of free time, so I'm headed out to take pictures with the new camera that I won on Shwaag!
