ICYMIThere are some weeks I wish we could miss. This one is clearly one of them.

While I don’t live in Orlando, the city is my second home and it has had its fair share of horrible events this week. I cannot express my prayers and thoughts enough for all. #OrlandoUnited

In Case You Missed It – Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors


I have made it clear that the Team Members and Cast Members at the Orlando theme parks are some of the most incredible people during this trying time. These are family and friends of those who were lost and have had an exceptionally hard week, all while having to go back to work, put a smile on their face, and be “happy” for those on vacation. So, I loved that those in Central Florida have banded together this week, in a symbol of unity, to create the viral love that is being displayed. (PS: my brother is in one of those photos.)
