  • What a beautiful video! I must say I was pretty teary eyed watching most of it! You all have had such an incredible year! What a great thing to have followed your dream! Thank you for allowing me to “dream along with you”

  • This made me cry in chat last night….and I watched this again on my phone today on my lunch at work. I cried again…..people saw me and asked if something was wrong…..! LOL!! I said, no…everything is good……..just watching a very touching video of a friend who is living a dream! Here is to your second year being as great as the first! And we get to meet you in your second year!!

  • What a treasured memory all in one place on this video. Brought back some of my first memories here these past 9 months too. I watched the whole thing (and the music was very nice to go along with it) and would have a hard time deciding what to put in there. Very nice video. Thanks for sharing the year in review with us.

  • Amy, we watched the video last night with you and we thought it was fantastic! I wish I had been able to meet up with you this year so I could have been in it too! lol My daughter Amy was with you on the POTC ride on Leap Day and had a blast! You should be proud of your accomplishments and following your dream! It sounds like your family is sure glad they made the move too! We love being here too. Yes, it’s hard to be away from our family in CT and that is the hardest part. I hope your second year is as fulfilling as your first!! And I hope we can meet up soon!!

  • You really know how to bring the magic back to every one else. It is good to know that there are ups and downs and that you get through them with faith and family. I enjoyed reading and watching your anniversary celebration, and knowing your family would be happy no matter where you live! Looking forward to many, many more ๐Ÿ™‚ God bless you and your family and happy anniversary from me and mine.

  • That video was so AWESOME! Thanks for sharing. Brought a tear to my eye. I can’t wait to move down and enjoy all the wonderful things that Disney has to offer. Can’t wait to see what you will come up with next! Keep up the great work!

  • WOW!!!!!! Amazing video! I had tears in my eyes watching this. I am so honored to have met you and your family. I am so happy that your dreams came true. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and pictures with all of us. I hope one day soon to be able to move to Florida and be able to call you up anytime and meet up for fun and food.

  • Amy, what a wonderful video. What memories, friends, joys and sorrows this year has brought to you and your family. You have truly worked to make your dreams come true. I so admire what you have done. Please don’t stop. I also have dreams, and you are just the inspiration for me and many others to never stop dreaming. Maybe someday on one of our trips I can meet you and tell you in person just how much I have enjoyed your blog.

  • Hey Amy and family. Sorry I’m a day late but let me start off by saying I love the video. The beginning really spoke to me. We have no plans to move to florida but I actually felt like I was on the road and moving to a new state. A few pictures really got to me….first was the highway leaving. I really did feel like that was the start of a journey. The second pic that really made me feel like this was “real” was the family pic under the welcome to florida sign. Maybe it was the music along with the picture but I could just see in your smile that you made it and not going back. The pic of your home with you all in the pool just said here we are now what lol. I also like the welcome to kentucky sign and that truck brake run off exit pic. I know that area and that means we are going to disney!!! We don’t plan on moving but seeing all the fun you have had this year at the parks and in florida sure makes me want to. But we are very happy here but someday maybe we will take that trip.
    Just wanted to say thanks for the video and you did a very good job. Really told a story.

  • Amy, that was really something! Well done, and what a truly amazing year you have all had. Thanks so much for letting us all share in your dream come true. ๐Ÿ™‚ Love you!

  • Talk about “keep moving forward”! Looking at these pictures really shows how you haven’t let any grass grow under your feet. I guess if you’ve got what it takes to pick up stakes and move across the country for your dream, you’re going to hit the ground running and this video diary truly shows all your family has accomplished. Here’s to Year 2!

  • Okay, so I finally had some time to watch the video. I absolutely loved it !! You did a great job putting it all together. I loved the choice of music. May you and your family continue to be blessed and also a blessing to others.
