Food and Wine Festival 2023

Disney’s California Adventure Food and Wine Festival 2023

It’s Time for Disney’s California Adventure Food and Wine Festival 2023! Kevin and I had the opportunity to go to the opening day of Disneyland’s Food and Wine festival 2023 and we were both so excited. However, I was also anxious. A whole festival surrounding food is still scary to me and gives me some anxiety. So while I will be sharing the foods Kevin and I tried at this festival and letting you know how we liked them, I did also want to take this time to share a little bit about how my recovery journey is going with healing my relationship with food and share some tips on how I am working on continuing to heal. Personal Struggles Sometimes I struggle with eating in public and around others. So as much as some people want to just assume people in larger bodies are going around to all of these food festivals and events to just “stuff their face”…let’s back up just a bit. Assuming people in larger bodies are bigger because all they do is stuff their faces with food is a very harsh and inaccurate assumption to make. The reality is, we never know what anyone is going through, and

Anaheim Hotel Visits Near Disneyland

It comes as no surprise that Kevin and I love spending time in and around Disneyland in Anaheim.  Since we have visited a few (or many) times we wanted to share some Anaheim hotel options for when you are booking your southern California Disney trip.  Get Away Today is the number one travel agency for discounted hotels and theme park tickets.  They recently hosted us on some hotel visits around the Anaheim Resort Area.  Last year we were also able to tour Get Away Today’s top 8 most popular hotels near Disneyland so if you are looking for even more places to stay you can check out that post HERE. I know that if you stay at any of these properties and book through Get Away Today you will be well taken care of.  I hope these breakdowns help you and your family decide which properties are best for your family.  If you have any questions PLEASE reach out so I can help you to the best of my ability. For me, some of the most important features to consider when I am booking a stay at Disneyland are price, proximity to Disneyland (is it walkable and how long is

Disneyland Holidays 2022 Mickey and Minnie

Tips for Navigating the Holidays and some Disneyland Holiday Food

The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year…but they can also be the most stressful time of the year too. I know firsthand how challenging it can be dealing with family and friends and let’s face it, food when you are not quite so confident and happy in your body.  The comments, being around food, guilt, lack of boundaries and did I mention being surrounded by food?  I have another post with tips on how to handle food in Disneyland but they also work EVERYWHERE. So, I wanted to create this post to share with you some of the magic of the holidays at Disneyland and share some of the holiday foods I tried this season.  Spending time at my happy place, especially during the holidays is such a magical time for me, and learning to enjoy the foods, without going all in or all out and listening to my body, and not feeling shameful for what I eat or throw away because I did not like them is a huge part of recovery.  Although I still have a long way to go, I am also proud of how far I have come. I also wanted to share some

Let’s Transition Some Summer Dresses to Fall/Winter

Forever dreaming  I’m in a winter wonderland ❄️❄️❄️ I love wearing dresses.  They are what make me feel the most comfortable and confident right now.  I thought that I would share how I style someone my favorite dresses from the warmer summer months and make them a little warmer and cozier for the fall and winter months.  Please keep in mind that I am a California girl, so the weather here gets cold for ME, but probably not THAT cold compared to other places in the world.  Summer to Fall/Winter Dress Look 1 Take your fav dress and pair it with a cardigan. Throw on a sassy classic hat and some sneakers. You are ready to go! Summer to Fall/Winter Dress Look 2 Take that same dress but now we are putting a sweater over it. You still see the beautiful dress on the bottom, which now looks like a skirt but you are all snuggly warm in an oversized sweater or sweatshirt. Again pair it with a classic pair of sneakers and you are good to go! Wearing little booties or boots would be a cute way to style these looks up for the colder months
