Our readers may be aware that for a short time, Reality To Dreams moved to Frankfurt, Germany.
After 11 years with Disney Interactive Studios, my husband felt ready for a new challenge. For 6 months he devoted himself to finding the right job opportunity for himself and for our family. When an opportunity in Frankfurt, Germany presented itself, we eagerly awaited this fresh start and the unique opportunity to experience living in a foreign country with our young family!
To celebrate, we bought our site a new ‘outfit’ (aka. a new site theme) to prepare for new features, posts, projects, and adventures!
BUT, AS SO MANY OF OUR FAVORITE DISNEY MOVIES BEGIN —
Our new beginning set our family on a path of several unexpected twists, obstacles, villains, and moments of truth.
I found myself back in the states with our two boys, and Reality To Dreams became very quiet.
I felt very much like Alice, falling through the rabbit hole. No longer home, and not yet in Wonderland.
My husband had a job in Germany, and he remained in Germany. Our family was separated by over 5,000 miles of land and sea.
We sold our home of 8 years — the home we brought both of our babies home to. Life lost its color for a while.
Each time I felt the need to write, I couldn’t come up with anything to say.
I wondered if I would have anything to say, ever again.
I’m pleased to say, Reality To Dreams still has a very bright future.
When I look back at the last 3 years, I can hardly believe where we have been.
Somehow, we are very much the same, and yet very different.
We are wiser, very hopeful, and still dreaming.
Reality To Dreams | Now
A soft launch
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO FIND HERE
In addition to new features, series, and adventures that are upcoming you can still expect to find posts from our:
From Utah To Germany Series
How is life in Utah different from life in Germany? How is it the same? What do we miss? What don’t we miss? What is it like to live in a country where you don’t speak the language?
With 9 European countries that directly border Germany, the ease of travel and the ability to travel together often was exciting.
We hope to create that opportunity again.
We’ll share photos and memories from our trip to Schwangau, Germany to visit Neuschwanstein Castle — the palace that served as a model for the Sleeping Beauty castle at Disneyland.
And of course, we’ll continue to share a variety of helpful travel planning posts with you!
Tales From The Rabbit Hole Series
We have become well acquainted with what I call “life in the rabbit hole”: the uncomfortable limbo of the ‘in between,’ how to conquer a move, how to say goodbye to a home, how to create a home, home organization, and so much more.
BRING DISNEY HOME
The world of blogging set me on an unforgettable learning path 3 years ago.
Whether it’s a Disney-inspired project we’ve shared —
Or a life experience that reminded us just how small of a world it is after all, discovering and sharing my #DisneySide with others has created so many sweet moments for me, and for my family.
It would be my absolute pleasure to continue to inspire you to bring the magic of Disney home,
