Weekly Round Up: December 17

Melissa with holiday Dumbo (At Disney Again)You guys! Thanks for visiting and commenting and tweeting and e-mailing … I really do appreciate each and every one of you. And I was especially struck by that feeling last week when 20 people participated in Kill Refurb Marry! 20! That’s so awesome. If you haven’t read it, do that!! (And please consider joining us next month. We’re talking aerial spinner rides, like Dumbo, on January 8.)

It was a great week in a lot of other ways, too. But right now, I’m more focused on the future … This time next week, I’ll be gathered around the Christmas tree with my family, hopefully opening some Disneyish gifts and spending time with the people I love. I’m so super looking forward to it. Also looking forward to wearing my awesome Star Wars Christmas sweater t-shirt. Yessssss!

What have you got planned for the upcoming week? I’ll be sharing two more Magical Memories posts written by two of my favorite men on the planet as well as some letters from the Jingle Cruise Skippers! The countdown to Christmas is on like SantaCon!!!
