Always Looking Ahead – Saving For Disney

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

It happens every year about this time.  I begin to plan out the year ahead of me.  I’m not a planner… not in the true sense of the word.  A true planner knows what they want to happen, then they plan how to make it happen… then it happens.  I’m almost the opposite, I know what I want to happen, and I think about how to make it happen…but I don’t always do what needs to be done to make it happen.  I can be a bit of a dreamer.  And for the most part, I’m ok with that.  But as my family grows older, I’m coming to realize that I am the one who will make things happen for us. It’s all me. I am the leader of the pack.

So, as a new year is upon us, once again I find myself making those plans in my head.  Those goals and dreams that I have for my family, the memories I want to make.  I think I find myself dwelling on them a bit more than usual due to the lack luster Christmas we just had.  When Strep entered the house at Christmas…it pretty much takes over.  There is a bit of me that is mourning what we didn’t do this Holiday.  BUT… I’m trying not to dwell on those things.

So… What am I planning?

Disney.. of course.

I think I am always planning a Disney vacation.

Tonight I found myself on the Disney website, picking out hotels and packages that might just be in our budget… if we save every penny.  It’s really not that expensive.  $3000 plus travel, totally doable!  I just need to start planning.

Not dreaming.


So… I’m thinking of resurrecting our Saving for Disney weekly post that I used to do years ago.   I think it will help both me (and maybe some of you) in saving for a big goal.
