Follow the journey of a Wisconsin family of 4 who relocated to the Walt Disney World area in July 2011

From AOL to Facebook

Leave a comment

It is an accurate statement to say that social media has a significant impact on all of our lives.  We have the ability to connect with individuals who live in many different parts of the world–strangers who become friends.  We feel fortunate to have made so many friends on Facebook who share our dream of the love of Disney; even if you have no plans to relocate to Florida, we still have the common thread of Walt Disney.

You might say our relationship and subsequent marriage started on the Internet.  We met on AOL in a dating forum, and because Mark at the time worked for United Airlines at O’Hare Airport, he was able to fly up to Wisconsin for weekend visits.  Our relationship evolved, and after a short engagement, we were married fourteen years ago this September.   Since that time, we have met and made new friends through the use of Yahoo Groups and emails, and now with the advent of Facebook, the ability to connect with more friends has really increased.

We don’t believe that we would have the courage to make this move without the support of our friends on Facebook and the search engines of Google.  🙂   We wanted to take the time to say thanks for following us and encouraging us as we make this huge step of relocating from Wisconsin to Florida.    There are still lots of details to attend to and boxes to pack, but we really feel like Florida is our home now, mainly through the people we have met online.  So, thank you!

We started this blog mainly for our own purposes, as a fun way to document our adventure.  We didn’t expect that we’d make new friendships and learn new information along the way!    We’d love to hear feedback from you, if there is a particular aspect of moving you’d like us to blog about, or if you’d like to be a guest blogger, please feel free to contact us about that as well.  We’d like to think that this blog is yours as well. 🙂
